Roberts at Festiniog
« on: Monday 11 January 16 17:25 GMT (UK) »
An ancestor of my wife was buried at Festiniog - Her name was Margaret Roberts and she was only 37 when she died and was buried in 1843 leaving a young family

The only burial found for her husband was William Roberts aged 41 of Tanygrisau at Festiniog  in 1848.
Dates ages and location all fit but were they buried in the same grave.I cannot be certain until I can show this   It would be so helpful if a Roots Chatter has details of any memorial or register which would confirm.  Many thanks  John Ashley

What date was the burial and what was her grave number?  Freebmd has 3 Margaret Roberts deaths in 1843 in the Ffestiniog RD and 2 Williams in 1848

Do you have the date for William's burial and his grave number?   How old was he when he died?

Here are all the areas covered by the Ffestiniog RD

Bore da - I was so pleased to have such a prompt reply to my query

The information you give confirms my research but I do not have any grave numbers. Are these available as they would show whether they are buried in the same grave  I would then have confirmation that they were man and wife.

I have traced the family on from there to the present day Your further assistance will be much appreciated. John Ashley in Caerphilly.

Helo Carole

I was so excited this morning that I did not notice that you were a separate correspondent from David

You will have seen my response and I would be delighted if you can assist further.

My apologies   John Ashley
