Yes, if you go to the cemetery office, behind the crematorium, there is a very nice lady there......just a thought, if there IS a headstone, I could take a photo of it, and send it to you.....just let me know….

Hello Amanda, I have quite a few relatives buried at Grantham cemetery, and often visit there, they are really helpful there and should be able to tell you exactly where the plot is, and also if there is a headstone.

Still no real progress on finding Roberts parents......going to local library this week, to search local paper (Grantham Journal) to see if there are any reports of his funeral, although not sure if at that time (1876) there would be such reports for "ordinary" people.....worth a try though.....

On the 1871 census, he is given as Robert HURD, Although if you look at it closely, I am sure that it is actually HEARD.....he is given as an apprentice shoemaker....he is in a village only a couple of miles from where his future wife, if it is him, lived....his marriage certificate in 1875 has him as a labourer......interestingly, the wife of the next door neighbours of the family that he is with, is from Shoreditch….a possible red herring....Robert is given as being born at Grantham, Lincs.…….on his daughter Lizzie's marriage certificate in 1898. Robert is given as a Plasterer (Deceased)…….

Using the GRO index, (which is excellent, thank you Millie) there are 3 births that stand out.....1853 at Shoreditch….1854 at Barnsley…....and the1855 one at Portsea Island....the last one giving the mothers name as Towers, However, on Ancestry there is a baptism and christening, at St. Paul, Chichester, Sussex for a Robert Herd in 1854.....parents George and Elizabeth...….I cannot find a birth for him at Grantham at all....
