Ellistown burial
« on: Sunday 23 July 17 18:03 BST (UK) »
Does anyone know where the cemetery would be for my grandfather, who died in 1943, lived in Ellistown, and according to the Parish records, was buried there. I don't think St Christopher's church has a cemetery, and my search indicates that there is no civic cemetery there at all.
I'm visiting the area unexpectedly tomorrow, have nobody left in the family to ask, and would love to visit his grave if it exists. I know I've left this rather late, but any ideas would be welcome.
Thanks,
Lisa

Thanks Kathleen, the kind Reverand directed me to County Archives, who directed me to the District council, who checked for me and found his grave! I'm going to see it tomorrow! Thanks for replying.

This is particularly satisfying, as it's so unexpected and last minute. I usually plan all my family research, but this was literally a last minute phone call, and a quick business trip to the area. My husband suggested trying to find my grandfathers grave, I really didn't think it would be possible with so little research! Damn, he was right😉
