Hi,

Quote
Wow - that's him all right. Where/how did you get access to the Bridgnorth Journal?
After sitting at the micro film reader in Bridgnorth Library for thousands of hours, I've published three books containing thousands of interesting events, including many BMD's in Bridgnorth between 1852 and 2009 (with some gaps)

I asked;

If it's the same family as Henry CRUMP, Plumber / Painter of Bridgnorth, then there is lots more local info'.

No - George Crump is (in fact) an informative side-shoot to the person I'm really focused on, so I don't need to follow a side-shoot of a side-shoot. Thanks for the offer (and, of course, thanks again for your insanely valuable original post)

Hi,

Here are the burial details of Leah and George CRUMP in Bridgnorth Municipal Cemetery.

Leah Crump, wife of George, age 45. Buried on 18th March 1889. Grave No.1197 UnConsecrated.
George Crump, a Butcher, age 48. Lived in City of Chester. Buried on 29th November 1893. Grave No.1196 UnConsecrated.

It's many years since I've tried to add an image but you may see;
a) Although the inscription has eroded, I'm sure this is their memorial headstone.
b) Advert from an 1886 Almanack.
