London and Middlesex / Re: Burials of two brothers and two sisters
« on: Thursday 19 January 23 15:26 GMT (UK)  »
SAWright - sorry for the long delay in replying. I have only just noticed your very helpful post.

We must be distantly related, as I share ancestry with the two Daniels sisters.

I am very keen to follow up your suggestion of the Kensington and Chelsea Cemetery, a place I know very well as I use to work in West Ealing and have walked past it many times.

I do not know, however, how to access the burial records for this cemetery. Do you - or indeed any other reader - know where these are kept? It would be great if they were online, though I suspect they are not.

Many thanks for the efforts, which unfortunately - lie my own - have not yielded the answer.

I suppose he could have been a non-conformist. Records for such people are harder to come by compared to Anglicans, so I would be very grateful for any help from those with access to such records.

Talking of non-conformists, what is the best site for searching their records? I know both Ancestry and FindMyPast have some records, but they are anything but comprehensive and I have rarely found missing relatives in those collections. Is the Genealogist better for non-conformists? Or is there another site I haven't considered?

Suffolk / James SMYTH

James SMYTH - if the census is to be believed - was born in Orford in 1812.

He married Susannah GILBERT in 1843 in Lambeth. According to the marriage certificate, he was an iron founder. His father was named as Henry SMYTH, a wheel-wright.

He died in 1865 in Greenwich, described as an iron moulder.

I can find no record of his birth, by which I mean his baptism. Nor can I find him prior to his marriage, in the 1841 census.

I have tried looking for his father in 1841, also without success..

Any help appreciated.

Very interesting. I would really like to know more about the young child. We know Alice married later, but the child simply disappears.

Many thanks. Now need to work out who the hell it is!

Armed Forces / Unit?

Does anybody have any idea on the unit?

Not even sure which war. Could be WW1, but then again.

Thanks for any help.

Just to note that the Cricklade Museum have not been very helpful. They asked me to send them the document I downloaded from Ancestry, which I duly did. But nearly a month later and I have not received even an acknowledgement, let alone a reply.

I ,just say that I am rather disappointed in their lack of response.

The Connelly family seem to travel from one fair to another, often staying in lodging houses.

They also seem to have associates who stayed in caravans, e.g. the Berritts
