Help please with Trowbridge cemetery
« on: Sunday 14 January 18 19:31 GMT (UK) »
Hello, I'm new to this forum. I've been researching my family for over 10 years & I'm currently learning about my Wiltshire ancestors. I have found out that a branch of the family with the surname of Watts have several family members buried in Trowbridge cemetery. I have their burial records & grave references & would like to visit. Can anyone advise me on the best way to contact the cemetery beforehand for more information.

Thanks for getting in touch. I managed to get a lot of helpful information from a lady at Trowbridge council. I plan to visit the cemetery soon, traveling by train. I just need to know if there is a local bus service that goes to the cemetery from the town.
