Albert Dealtrey who ran The Colonade Cafe
« on: Wednesday 08 March 17 20:08 GMT (UK) »
I am trying to locate where my Gt Grandad was buried... He ran the Colonade cafe, Victoria St Isle of Man  it was very busy from dawn to dusk. He served from the hot grill at the window. Wife Peg ( Margaret who was from Rosslare) did all the cooking. He died from TB sadly.

Name   Albert Richard Dealtry
Age   47 Years
Birth Year   abt 1881
Burial Date   27 Jan 1928
Burial Place   Onchan, Isle of Man
Biography   47 years
URL   http://www.imuseum.im/search/people/

Two Dublin girls Nancy and Polly and Mary Brennan came from Crosby to help in the cafe. In the yard was a little shed below the Grand Theatre and next door lived Mrs Dobson ( Dobbie) who peeled the potatoes! Albert Dealtrey's  brother Frank did all the menial tasks.  Albert had TB and was grumpy because of it, given the family history he probably had arteriosclerosis as well. Just as they had taken on the Loch Promenade Hotel he died. Peg had to take on this and the cafe.
 
In 1928 they moved to the Bray House Hotel later called The Gresham and it was used as a WRNS HQ during the war.
Can anyone help me determine if he had a headstone? His wife and daughter and son moved away after his death up to Lancashire.

ManxBMD.com reports his death as being registered in Douglas.

Burial Registers has his burial in Douglas Borough Cemetery, Glencrutchery Road.

It's a very large cemetery (for the Isle of Man! ;D)

I have located his grave in the indexes, held at the Manx Museum Library. Plot E 49.

Do you want a photo of the headstone? If one exists!
Weather is very damp today, but maybe tomorrow? ;D

I took a trip to Douglas Borough Cemetery today.
Unfortunately, there is no grave marker for Albert.

The graves at E47 and E55 are conveniently marked/numbered.
Albert's grave at E49 is just an empty space. :(
