Polesworth burial 1891
« on: Monday 02 July 18 16:45 BST (UK) »
Hi,

I have a family member (Emma Sarah Humber) who died in Polesworth (Tamworth) in 1891. Is it possible to discover where she would have been buried? I see Polesworth Abbey has burial plots but would that have been the default burial place for locals in 1891?

Thanks for any help

steve

If you would like, I can go and see if there is a headstone.  I'll be home next week (Tamworth) and I can pop down to Polesworth.  Not promising a result, but!!
Transcriptions and NBI are merely finding aids.  They are NOT a substitute for original record entries.

Thanks BumbleB, Iím hoping to head up that way at the weekend. Wanted to be sure I was wandering in the correct churchyard 😊

That's a good spot Rosie, thanks.

Emma's maiden name was Palmer and from the 1881 census, she did have a daughter Elizabeth born 1873 so that definitely fits. Same grave presumably?

The church burial register does not list grave plots.
