St Leodagarius, Basford
« on: Tuesday 01 June 10 09:24 BST (UK) »
Are there many gravestones left at St Leo's in Basford? I know of the Basford general cemetery but the graves in which I'm interested predate its opening. I don't want a drive down the motorway to St Leo's if there's no likelihood of hitting gold!

Hi Annie,

I have pictures of St. Leodegarius grounds in Basford that I took a few years ago which include general photos of the graveyard. If you'd like pictures, let me know.  I'll send them to you.  I tried looking for graves from the early pre 1638.  No gravestones that early (what few there were) are readable. [email protected] .  Put St. Leo's in the subject line, so I don't delete your message.

Hi jan; thanks for that but it's not possible to exchange PMs until someone has a minimum of 3 posts.

Seperately, I managed to get to St Leo's a week or two back and bought a book about the church; it contains transcripts of all the tombstones that were legible so if anyone wants me to check out any specific names, let me know.

Thanks, Annie!

I'm looking for anyone whose surname is any variant spelling of Whelden.
Also a woman named Jane who might have been buried in 1637 or 1638.

Thanks for your help!  I live in the U.S., but I went to Nottingham to do research on my grandfather 12 generations ago named Gabriel Whelden.  I had an article on him and his children (all baptised at St. Leo's) for the New England Historical and Genealogical Register that came out in October of 2009, so it was a very productive trip.

If you are looking for pre 1665 baptisms, etc., go to the Central Library in Nottingham.  The first microfiche of St. Leo's has never been published.  The probable reason for that is that most of those church records were not in very readable condition; however, we did our best and got quite a bit of information.

Sorry folks - no Wheldons, no Mosedales.

This doesn't mean that they weren't buried there, just that there's no surviving legible tombstone.

Hi Annie,

Were there any gravestones from the 1600s or before that were legible?

I take it that you also did not find a person with the first name of Jane having been born in 1637 or 1638.

Thanks for your help.
