Hi,   Shireoaks Church is the nearest.  Not sure of the name of the one on Gateford Rd Worksop thats used by people from Rhodesia. Notts. Most burials around there are done at Manton Cemetery Retford Rd Worksop.  Doubt if they'd be buried Shireoaks..    See if I can come up with anything. Hope it helps. gales

The church on Gateford Road is St John's The evangelist, However it doesn't nor ever has had a cemetery - all the funerals undertaken here have been buried either behind the church in Worksop priory (it has an "Extended Cemetery" - but for the time frame we are looking for it will be Retford Road.
Hope this helps
Worksop Library'e records finish just before 1900 .... so you need to get in contact with The town hall - for that phone number
My relatives died in Rhodesia c.1925 and i had a few died on gateford road, the funeral was undertaken at st john's , the burials at Retford Road for both sets -  their records for burial was accessed through them.
Hope this helps

They might be buried in St.Lukes C of E Church at Shireoaks, Rhodesia is really not far away.

Good luck in your search.

My best suggestion is to Telephone Worksop Town hall - they will put you in contact with a seperate department , who have the burial records.
The gentleman used to be called clive, and they are very sympathetic to family historians - if you have roughly a idea of which year
