Please help trying to find a lost grave in Luton (Mwaisela 1971)
« on: Sunday 05 June 11 09:27 BST (UK) »
Hi i wonder if any one can help me?

Im trying to find a grave that belongs to my grandfathers sister.

Her name was Mrs Hortense Eloise Mwaisela who died 12/10/1971 and was buried 15/10/1971

 We do know that she is in Luton and possible that she is resting at  Rothesay Rd Cemetery, Luton due to her last address being meyrick Ave so my search has told me so far.

Another possibilty is Crawley green which im really hoping for as just buried my grandfather there April this year.

Thank you for any help

Pauline

Probably best to contact the cemeteries and ask them.  As you have an exact date of burial it should be fairly easy for them to look it up.

The vale were very helpfull called me back with in 10 mins to state nothing at the vale or rothesay. For crawley green i have called them up who i noticed are st marys. But its going to take longer as they said i have to fill in a form and send to them with 25 pound cheque and wait for relpy.

Shame one can do it for free and quicker then the other ya have to pay for
