Worcestershire Lookup Requests / Re: Burial Rainbow Hill parish Worcester

Did you ever get to the bottom of this mystery? I have rediscovered a map of part of Astwood showing where graves are - which I got from the cemetery office many years ago. If your ancestor happens to be on this map I could check if she had a stone?

Worcestershire / Re: Worccester address 1905

I have a street directory from 1901 - mostly house numbers but quite a few house names. Glenthorne and Glenmead but no Glenholm. Do you want to mention the surname to see if that helps?

If it's Bowen - I can't see anyone of that name in Wylds Lane

thanks for that information Mark. Short of tracking each person in the photo I'm not sure I'll ever know why it was here!

Hi there
Do you have more details about the connection between the men in the photo - were they all students or something? has yours been autographed - I can scan the reverse of mine and you can see if your father's signature is there.

I still have no idea how it came to be in my grandmother's possessions  though...

I never heard anything from Aberdeen College, and can't believe it is 4 1/2 years since I posted this message - where does the time go  :)

FH Documents and Artefacts / Re: Address on Death Certificate

Thank you Rosie - I hadn't seen that record. The certificate says she was 93! I have tracked her through the census and she was a widow as far back as 1851 so it would be strange to quote an address for a long dead husband?

Thanks for that, the address in Bromley is crammed in to column 5. The informant was the workhouse master so the addresses in column 1 & 7 are the same.

FH Documents and Artefacts / Address on Death Certificate
« on: Saturday 03 March 12 13:12 GMT (UK)  »
A death certificate in my possession says that the deceased, Charlotte Spindler was "Widow of William Spindler a labourer of 56 Bloomfield Street, Bromley"

Would this address refer to her last known home before entering the workhouse? In 1881 she was living at Augusta St, Poplar, and the death occurred in 1886 at the workhouse, Poplar - she was 93.

I am trying to trace the marriage of Charlotte to William and wondered if the address could help? In previous census she moved about a bit but none are in Bromley.

Any thoughts please  :)
