Lost burial ground, Framfield.
« on: Friday 12 January 18 08:17 GMT (UK) »
My Gt, GT grandfather died in August 1891, Framfield, he was 63. The reason for his death was suicide. I have been searching for over 10 years to try and find his burial place but without success.
The burial record I have is from the now defunked "familyhistoryonline" and it states.....
"Jeremiah Batchelor. 8 Aug 1891 age 63. Notes Croxted Lane Yard, Framfield St. Thomas"
It does'nt give citation as to where the record came from.
I have visited St.Thomas church but they were of no help, I've checked old maps of the area but can't find the grave yard. I've spent hours wandering around Framfield looking for clues but it seems that Croxted Lane Yard has disappeared. I assume other people have been buried here but I can't find any record of the place online. Any help would be appreciated.

Didn't familyhistoryonline 'morph'  into FindMyPast  :-\

Didn't I just read somewhere else on RC that unless you are signed in to familysearch before you open the link it won't work now?

Thank you    jonw65 for that link, looked there before but never found it. Like you say it says abode Croxted Lane. In 1891 he lived in Sand Hill, Croxted Green with his wife and son William. William also committed suicide in 1923 in the same way as his father.
This does'nt explain the phrase Croxted Lane Yard, the grave yard at St.Thomas is quite far from Croxted Green.

ADDED.  Just checking the 1891 again and it appears that he lived at Pale House Common.
