Family History Beginners Board / 28 Loveday Street, Birmingham, UK. 1956.
« on: Monday 13 July 20 12:08 BST (UK)  »
My brother Peter Griffiths was born at this hospital on 28th December 1956, where he died two hours later, from intracranial haemorrhage.
His parents lived in Stirchley at the time, in Cartland Road.
I was had as a replacement.
As was the way back then, the cure for grief was never to talk of these things.  All I know is that he had his own, tiny, white coffin, which my father carried at the funeral service himself.
I know absolutely nothing else.
I'm getting older now, and have spent so many years trying to find out where Peter was buried or cremated, to no avail.  Our parents are deceased. I want to find Peter, if not where he is, then where he was.  I want to say goodbye to the brother I've never yet said hello to.
I've scoured websites, written to churches (most of which don't reply) and can find nothing.
If anyone can help I'd be eternally grateful.

Family History Beginners Board / Dumbleton Churchyard.
« on: Monday 19 March 12 19:07 GMT (UK)  »
I have attached a photograph of myself sitting on the gate of Dumbleton churchyard.  I was off-sick from school with my asthma, and joined my parents and granny on a day trip here in about 1963 or thereabouts.  I have amassed a huge family tree going back to the 1500s in some branches, but have drawn a blank with the Dumbleton branch.  I was always told that Dumbleton churchyard was where all granny's relatives were buried.  Somewhere there was a vicar(s), and a headmaster, possibly at a school in Worcester.
Granny was Gladys Maud Stanley (1895), with a sister Hilda Stanley (1897), and a brother whom I think died in infancy, Wallace Stanley (1889).  Their parents were William Stanley and Emily nee Pritchard.  William died a young man and left Emily to raise the girls alone. I just can't seem to go any further back with this line, let alone find any clergy or headteachers.
Does anyone have any idea whether there is a list of those buried in Dumbleton churchyard?  Or have any idea of my family tree prior to the information I have?
Any help greatly appreciated!
Many thanks.
