Sussex Lookup Requests / Lost burial ground, Framfield.
« on: Friday 12 January 18 08:17 GMT (UK)  »
My Gt, GT grandfather died in August 1891, Framfield, he was 63. The reason for his death was suicide. I have been searching for over 10 years to try and find his burial place but without success.
The burial record I have is from the now defunked "familyhistoryonline" and it states.....
"Jeremiah Batchelor. 8 Aug 1891 age 63. Notes Croxted Lane Yard, Framfield St. Thomas"
It does'nt give citation as to where the record came from.
I have visited St.Thomas church but they were of no help, I've checked old maps of the area but can't find the grave yard. I've spent hours wandering around Framfield looking for clues but it seems that Croxted Lane Yard has disappeared. I assume other people have been buried here but I can't find any record of the place online. Any help would be appreciated.

Daniel Brown. b1873 Southampton.  GRO has his mothers maiden name as Hancock. Cannot find a marriage for a Brown - Hancock that fits.
They are on the 1891 census in Southampton, Maria Brown b.1832, Poole, Dorset. Widow.
There is another Brown family living in the next house, maybe relations.
Can't find on 1881. Would like to find the marriage, Maria would have been 41 when Daniel was born so may have been a second marriage.
