Birch Family burial location?
« on: Monday 25 July 16 09:57 BST (UK) »
Hi,  I am wondering if anyone can help me locate the graves of my 4x grandparents who although born in Hyde died in Whitchuch, Salop.  I have looked at Whitchurch cemetery website and their online index and can't find anything there.

William Birch died 6th December 1916 aged 72.
Sarah Ann Birch who died Sep 1904 (his first wife)

William Birch's death certificate states that he was living at Iscoyd Villa. 
I'd really like to try and locate a grave so I can make a visit in person so if anyone can help I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks,
Helen

Welcome to Rootschat.
You could try contacting the archives section at Salop council who may be able to point you in the right direction.
Iscoyd Park is a very large country house, and I guess the villa may well have been in its grounds at the time.

Hi,

Thanks for the suggestion.  I did email them last week but no response as of yet.  Hopefully someone might be able to point me in the right direction.

Thank you
