Once I had the relevent death certificates, I checked through the Witton Cemetery burial registers at Birmingham Central Library for matches around the dates shown on the death certificates. Once I had a match or matches I noted the burial reference number/s and presented that at the cemetery office. That coupled with the date, enabled them to give me plot and section numbers and information such as the last known address and on the odd rare occasion the purchaser of the burial rights. It was these last two pieces of information that "clinched" it for me when I had a couple of possible matches, when a couple of people with the same name died at around the same time.

Did you contact the cemetery first and ask for a broad search between two dates, then get the certificates or as I did?

Either way, with "several years difference" in one case, it looks like one of the graves or  one of the certificates is not the one you are looking for, even with a name that is not that common.
Surnames that I am intersted in are:- Siddons, Coulson, Clives, White, Cullin, Peers, Swingler, Lambeth, Quibell, Greenway, Beaman, Durrie, and Gibbs, all of Aston/Duddeston/Hockley in Birmingham,Warwickshire and Inskeep of Shrewsbury Shropshire and Birimingham

I have some Memebers of my Family buried in a Family plot in Witton Cemetery, their name is Davies and they have been buried there over a period of time from 1889 (possibly before).

The details I do know are:
Mary Davies buried 1889 aged 18
Robert Davies buried 1913 aged 63

There may well be more Davies buried there.

I live in Dorset and so visiting is difficult, if someon locally could find the graves and E-mail me photos, it would be much appreciated, I would be more than happy to return the favour for any Dorset burials.

Regards,

Richard Hudson

  Many times as long as you give them enough information they don't charge they sent me a map of the cemetery to make it easier to find the plot. Think i asked too many times so when they emailed  said they would have to charge next time. When you get an answer post it on here maybe if anybody is going there they may take a photo for you.

Hi All,
I have recent success requesting with  a name and a death date for my great great grandfather. They are very helpful for simple enquiries and came back with a plot number and grave number.
I will be going soon to see the family grave so if you mail me before I go I may be able to take some photos Richard.
Regards to all,

Hi Sammidav,
Thanks for your kind offer to photograph some graves, If possible all Davies buired in Section 65 around grave No 8906 (Robert Davies died 1913 aged 63).

Kind regards,
