Hi Dobbie - welcome to rootschat!

It rather seems as if you have landed here in the middle of a conversation you were having, so I think we need a few more details first! 

Which part of the world are we in, and do you know the name of the cemetery?

Hi,

There's a death registered in Leeds that fits the details given in OP.  Is this him?

I have located 1671 but then goes to 1683 , there is no headstone so I am really looking at a plot were it should be but cant make any sense of the plot numbers as they all seem mixed up , regards john .

This might help from the Leeds.gov.uk website:

How can I locate a particular grave?

Contact the Administration Office at Lawnswood. Telephone 0113 3957446 or by e mail at parks@leeds.gov.uk to make an appointment for a member of staff to meet you at the Cemetery to show you the location of the grave.
