William Wellings Burial (Methodist)
« on: Monday 02 February 15 13:18 GMT (UK) »
Hi all,

Im trying to find a burial record for a William Wellings who lived in Ellerdine Heath.

I have found his Baptisim 1782 and marriage to Alice Bagley in 1844 in the Parish registers, but I can track down no burial. He is registered on the BDM as dying Shawbury 1860

William was a Methodist and I was wondering if it would have possibly been recorded elsewhere?

He is an original trustee of the Emanuel Chapel in Ellerdine and from the account books stored at Shropshire archives he seems to have been active in the physical building on the church.

Any thoughts on where to look would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,

Donna
