Ellis Selby died 1912 , where is he buried ?
« on: Monday 12 March 18 06:29 GMT (UK) »
Ellis Selby who lived in the Shardlow area of Derbyshire died in 1912 and i can not find a burial for him or for his wife Emma who died in 1915, a brick wall to knock down.
I have looked hard for the burial place but no luck.

Do you have their death certificates - they might give a better idea of where they are buried?  Cavendish Bridge area would seem likely. As a local businessman, perhaps the local newspaper may have news of his death and burial.

Added:  sorry misread the 1911.   :-[

They are probably buried at St. James, Shardlow.  They both have Cavendish Bridge as their place of abode on their burial notices (Ancestry)

I also have looked at st james and think that's where they most probably are laid to rest but however still no luck finding them there, a kind person had a look through the church yard and found nothing, but of course they could still be there unmarked or hiding in some under growth  or in another location.

Not quite sure why you are doubting that they are buried at St James in Shardlow.  At that time there were far more important things to spend your money on than a headstone.   :-\

It might be an idea to contact the church - grave locations are often still maintained by the church.

Thank you, tried that also but no reply as with others, some are good at getting back to you and some just don't.
One cemetery I am working with at the moment was kind enough to e-mail the plot card for a relation and also apologised for not getting back to me for a few weeks due to a problem they said they had with how there e-mails are captured, they where real good and even said that if there was anything else  to please just let them know, so I e-mailed to ask for a photo if possible but got no reply, a week or more later I e-mailed once again to see if anyone might reply.
No luck yet on that one, its just part and parcel of the family history game.
I will try again regards an e-mail to st james at some point, fingers crossed.
