Just maybe the remians could be at Stoke Poges Parkside cemetary, Winsor Road.  Nr.Slough

I've had relatives buried there, who lived in High Wycome and Beaconsfield.

Just maybe worth and enquiry.

Buckinghamshire / Re: Aylesbury Prison 1898-1908

Sorry I can't be of much help, but there are a few records surviving for Aylesbury Prison and even some photo's of the inmates at The Centre For Buckinghamshire Studies.

Forgot to mention, that the older prison was behind the old Courthouse at the bottom of the Market Square.

Worth a look around.

Yes, I have that info now thankyou.

At least I'm getting closer.  As I live in Ireland now, access to records is a bit limited.

Thanks for looking for me.

Buckinghamshire Lookup Requests / William Stevens c1801 (Monks Risborough)??
« on: Sunday 31 October 10 13:56 GMT (UK)  »
Hi all,

I have William Stevens c1801  marrying Rebecca Rogers/Rodgers in 1823. Monks Risborough, Buckinghamshire.

In 1841, they are living in Meadle, Monks Risborough with 9 of their children. And Williams y.o.b is given as 1806

In 1851 they are living in  Monks Risborough (Redland End) minus Rebecca. (Dies 1844).

I am trying to find William Stevens(1801) parentage, and most leads head towards Dinton, but nothing confirmed as yet.

Buckinghamshire / Re: Prince Risborough Gas Works
« on: Monday 04 October 10 20:24 BST (UK)  »
I am looking for any information at all on the Gas Works in Princes Risborough. I know that it opened up in 1862 and closed in 1960. My ancestor John Bunce was the manager there on the 1871 census, and also lived there with his wife and children. Although he was born in Bucks, on all the other census' and records I have on him he lived in Oxfordshire after his marriage. He was a Coach smith on all other records. I am trying to find out how and why he went from coach smith to manager of a gas works and then why he left to return to his previous occupation. Also why he moved back to Bucks and then returned to Oxon again. Also any other information on the gas works such as location or pictures would be most welcomed.
Many thanks in advance!

All I can tell you is that the Gas works were down the Longwick Rd, out of Princes Risborough, and to the left before the railway bridge approx half a mile down the road.
