photo request Eliza Beatty buried there 24 Sep. 1867 in Westbury, Wilts.

Does some kind soul live in Westbury, Wiltshire, and would be prepared to find and photograph the grave of Eliza Beatty who was buried there 24 Sep. 1867?

I understand there is a stone with inscription, but I don't know whether in a cemetery or churchyard.  She was probably Anglican.

Sorry: I should have asked when the weather was better!

Probably best to try and find out exactly where she is buried first.  Could be in this cemetery.

Westbury Cemetery, Bratton Road, Westbury
Approximately 7,000 burial records are available. The First 3000+ burials dated 19th May 1857 to 10th February 1931 are available as computerised index data only.

I don't know if you can access the index yourself or ask the cemetery to check for her, there is an enquiry form online  :)

Thanks, Millie.

Unfortunately local authorities (in this case Wilts. Co. Council) don't see it as their job to answer such queries.
