St. Marcela (Whitchurch), Denbigh. MI for Robert Roberts 1907
« on: Thursday 13 April 17 07:19 BST (UK) »
Hi,
Does anyone know if the Monumental inscriptions for St Marcella's (Whitchurch) near Denbigh are available anywhere? I am looking for my ancestor, Robert Roberts who was buried there in 1907.

Thanks.

Hi

They should be available as St Marcela's was a C of E Church. Records might well be online (you could check on FamilySearch for free or FindMyPast (pay to view) and would definitely be at the National Libary of Wales.

Do you have a date of birth and death for him or an address as I see that there were 5 burials fro a Robert Roberts in Denbigh for that year - one was a child though.

Sorry - I misread - I now see that you wanted MIs. Clwyd FHS do have some MI booklets - see
http://www.clwydfhs.org.uk/publications.htm

Added - there might be a local listing so it might be worth contacting the church direct ~

Thanks for all your help.

Robert Roberts was getting on for 90, there is an obituary here:
http://newspapers.library.wales/view/3610531/3610536/50/

MI's for this church dont seem to be listed on the clywdfhs, so might have to visit myself. Looks like a lovely old church.

Cheers,
Matt

I noticed on one site that I came across (I Googled Find a grave St Marcella Denbigh - but not the usual find a grave site ) that they were in the process of photographing St Marcella headstones. I'll see if I can find it in my history but it might have cleared as I've been off line.

Lucky - here it is

Notice that St Marcella is in red which indicates:

Quote
Cemeteries and churchyards that are listed in RED are ones which volunteers are currently photographing and indexing and are therefore not yet available.

Added - also says that they expect the pics to go online May 2017
