Trying to find ~ Burial in Edgmond, Newport
« on: Saturday 09 April 05 00:11 BST (UK) »
I would like to find the burial plot of an ancester Christopher WRIGHT. He died Edgmond, Newport & he used to be the Innkeeper at the Lambs Inn, Shrewsbury Rd, Shropshire.
Can anyone tell where the most likely cemetery would be.
Many thanks

There are two churches in Edgmond, the Parish church and a methodist church.

Hi Gillj,
Thanks for the info. Would you be able to tell me the names of the Parish & Methodist churches? On GENUKI there is a list of Transcripts of Monumental Inscriptions for Shropshire. For Newport there is a St. Nicholas. Could this be one of the churches?
Many thanks

Hello Lee,
Can you please tell me what the name of this cemetery is? I wonder if they the Shropshire FHS has a monumental inscription of it?
Would be also interested to hear of your Jones interest in Staffordshire. I also have Jones from the Butt Lane, Audley, Wolstanton areas. I know its a hard name to link up but you never know!

Thank you Lee for the info on Newport cemetery.
The surname Jones I am researching dates from 1795, Audley, Staffordshire. Unfortunately, no connection.
