Horsley Woodhouse death in 1938
« on: Thursday 16 November 17 16:31 GMT (UK) »
My G grandmother, Emily G Clarke, died on 15th Jan 1938 at Horsley Woodhouse, the address given is Willow Grove, which I haven't been able to find.

However what I'd really like to find is her burial. The death notice in the Ripley and Heanor News doesn't give any details, I don't think St Susanna's has a churchyard, and she is not buried in Belper Cemetery, what are the other possibilities locally?

This was from a random person death notice in 1943:

'Service at Horsley Woodhouse Parish Church at p.m. Interment at 3. p.m. at Horsley'

so implication that there is a cemetery in Horsley.

Thanks, it's useful to know that, if the service was at St Susanna's Horsley Woodhouse, there's a possibility that the burial could have been at St Clement's, Horsley.

I'll try the Parish Office, it looks like the same office covers both churches.

Images are available on Ancestry for Horsley burials - no church name specified - but there is no sign of Emily in the records.
Transcriptions and NBI are merely finding aids.  They are NOT a substitute for original record entries.

Thanks for looking! - I'll see what the Parish Office have to say, hopefully there will have been a service at St Susanna's...

I've just done a quick search for death notices and see that there is one at Horsley Woodhouse in September 1938 which states that the burial will be at Horsley Woodhouse Church - so it looks like there were burials there after all...

Hi

There is a death in 1939 of Eleanor Cadman, dau of Dr & Mrs Cadman, of Willow Grove Horsley Woodhouse. using this Surname and Horsley wood in 1939 register is interesting.


Suggest this was possibly a small nursing home.

I think that's probably right - a search of the British Newspaper Archive turns up several deaths recorded at Willow Grove, Horsley Woodhouse.

Thought I'd post the resolution.

The St Susanna's Church PCC Secretary kindly looked up the burial records and found that Emily was buried at St Susanna, Horsley Woodhouse on Jan 20th 1938.
He tells me that the plot records are rather incomplete but has offered to help me find the grave when I visit.
