I've taken a look at St Peter and St Pauls and no luck.She's not there.
I've also tried the burials on Ancestry and again no luck.
There is a site

which you can search provided by Birmingham Council .
(The library computer I'm on blocks the site so I can't have a look for you)
Or you could try Deceased online

Sorry but that's the only ideas I can come up with.


many thanks for looking ..very much appreciated

Hi there,
Just a quick note wondering if anyone possibly as access to the burial register of ss peter and Paul aston ? or is possibly going to Birmingham archives ?
I am looking for the burial of a little baby named Beatrice Luckman of teall Road saltley, who died in september 1915 aged just 4 weeks
we have checked all the larger cemeteries, without sucess, so we are guessing she must have been buried in one of the local churchyards.
any help would be very much appreciated

Hi Margaret

Thank you so much for the copy of the paper clippings. Rita loved seeing them.

Rita said that her mother Florence and Arthur are buried at Yardley Green Cemetery.  There isn't  individual graves but there is a plaque on the wall. We are now actually planning on taking Rita to Birmingham next month. Rita moved to Essex many years ago.

After speaking to Rita she told me how her Grandmother Nesta had 12 children. you may already know this from your research.

here is a list of the names just incase

William (Rita's Father who married Florence)
Frances (Frankie)
Edward (Ted)

You mentioned St Martin's,  is this in Birmingham??

Rita is interested to know how your husband Marc is related.

Due to her mothers passing Rita doesn't have much information regarding the family it only really been through word of mouth. As i belive later down the line she parted ways with her father.

Any information you have would be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards

Hello There

My name is Emma and i have stumbled a cross this while chatting with my husbands nan.  Her Name is Rita (maiden name) Broadhurst, her mum was Florence Broadhurst and her Auntie was Nesta Broadhurst.

You are correct in saying there air raid shelter was bombed. Rita and her brother John William Broadhurst were the only survivors as far as she knows. John recently passed away.

Rita was only 5 ish at the time so has limited memory but if there is anything she may be able to help with let us know.  Also if you have any more information i know that Rita would love to hear about it.

Many Thanks

wow, this is marvellous. thank you for getting in touch !
my name is margaret  - my husband marc sheridan, is the distant relative.
I have been researching his family tree.
my family also came from birmingham, so i knew a little of the history of the air raids.
I would be happy to share what I have discovered so far.
Have you any idea where Arthur Lewis Broadhurst and his sister-in-law Florence are buried ?
I have been unable to find that so far .
There is a very nice memorial by St Martin's church in honour of those who died..have you seen it ?
Look forward to hearing from you

Best wishes..Margaret

Do you know how many brothers and sisters Alfred had and what his relationship was to Bill and Lottie who moved to Saskatchewan in Canada? By the way one of my Luckman cousins married a full blood Maori. Cousins (even distant ones) are treated in the same way as brothers and sisters in NZ - so, nice to hear from you! Bro!!!

Hello again, I will try and send you a private message..
