Hi Roger,  Thank you for your kind offer to look up Deaths in Heckingham Workhouse.  My Great, Great Grandmother died in that workhouse in 1900, i am wondering if you have any record of her.  Her name was Elizabeth Grimmer (nee Charlish) and she was about 85 years old when she died.
Thank you for your help Dennis Lincoln

Hi Roger, 
Thank you for your quick reply.  I had been unable to find any Burial records for Heckingham, so I am delighted that I now have a copy of the relevant page from the Parish Registers.  Also your link gives access to many more of the Heckingham Workhouse records, so I will spend the afternoon searching through those, who knows what I may discover.

Again many thanks

Dennis Lincoln

Hi Roger

Please could you look out for William Clowes who I believe died in the workhouse around May 1826.

Thanks in anticipation

Hi Roger, I am getting back to FH after a 25 year break! I have a Sarah Riches bp 16/01/1853 that had Gertrude And Roberta twins in Heckingham Workhouse 31/07/1879 and I think one may have died 1/8/1879. Are you kindly able to confirm and advise how I could obtain records in connection with Sarah. Her mother was Sarah (Pettit) and father William Riches. I think Hardley would be her parish. Thank you in the hope you are still doing lookups. Regards Pauline

Hi Pauline

Gertrude Sarah and Roberta Ann Riches were born 29 April 1879 and baptised 19 May 1879 at Great Yarmouth St Nicholas, mother Sarah Riches, home parish Great Yarmouth.

The baptisms can be found on Family Search (you need to be signed in) at

There is a Sarah Riches in Yarmouth Workhouse in 1881 but she was aged 48(born 1833)
