Witton cemetery, Birmingham - is there a headstone?
« on: Monday 20 February 17 18:20 GMT (UK) »
Hello, I understand Witton cemetery is enormous and I am not local. 
The cemetery has given me a number, but can't tell me if there is a headstone.

Is there anyone out there who vsits Witton who might be able to locate a grave and see if there is a headstone? 
The details are Section 27 and grave number 60778.  Buried there are Emma Riley 1949 and her husband Frederick, also known as Frank, 1956.

I would be most grateful if anyone visits and might not have to go too far out of their way to look for this grave.

Thank you Shejos

Did they not give you a map? It's in sections based on religion. There are old parts and newer parts. There are also two Jewish cemeteries attached to it too.
I have family there.
