Burial of David Wilding Clarke, 1931
« on: Friday 11 May 18 13:51 BST (UK) »
Hello,

David died in Kettering in 1931. His full name was David Wilding Clarke. He was apprenticed to my 3x great-grandad, Henry Pepper, in Cambridge, in 1861. Coincidentally, he ended up moving to and dying in the town of my birth. I don't live in Kettering now, but I walk and bus there regularly.

I'd appreciate any help!

Adam

His burial is on Deceased Online. You could purchase a few credits to view it?

I know there's a couple of churches near where he lived. I know the rough area but I don't recall the name of the road. And yes, I just saw the deceased online record, I'll look into the credits.

If you use the 'coverage' search on Deceased Online you can see which Kettering cemeteries are included in their database, to narrow your search a bit.

Hi MacGrigor.

He appears to be buried in the same grave as his wife and a spinster also named Clarke.

The Cemetery is Kettering, London Rd which means you can ask the Cemetery Office for the details.
