Photo of grave in Wilford Hill cemetery in Nottingham
« on: Saturday 22 May 10 20:48 BST (UK) »
Hi all,

I am hoping someone will take some photos of my great grandfathers grave Robert John Marshall in Wilford Hill cemetery in Nottingham so that I can complete my family tree.

I have finally been able to get the grave number and reference.

I would really appreciate any help as I am in London and don't know the Nottingham area.

Thanks for all your help

Kieran

Hi LH35,

Thank you very much for your help.  The grave reference is F1562 and is for Robert John Marshall.

Can you take a few photos if you find it also if there is a map of the graveyard could you take a photo of it too incase I ever get up to visit it.

I am really grateful that you are doing this for me.

Thanks for all your help

Kieran

Hi LH35,

Thank you very much for all your help in getting photos my great grandfathers grave.  I have been trying to get his death notice in the paper but haven't been able to find it.  It was suggested that if I contacted the funeral directors that they would know.  Do you know anyone that works at the cemetery office or could you possibly ask them the next time you are there who the funeral director was and then I could phone them to see if they know anything bout a notice.

Thanks for all your kind help

Kieran

Hi LH35,

Thanks for all your help.  No, I never got up to see the grave but I will when I get time as between my father no being well and my brothers getting married and me learning how to drive it has been a busy year.

Thanks for all your help as always

Kieran

Hi Kieran,

Have you tried contacting Angel Row Library in Nottingham.  They have all the old newspapers on film.

If you know a pretty accurate date for the death notice, you might find the Library staff may look it up for you, I have always found them very helpful.

Good luck,
