Baby's name is James H Bates born in Egypt in 1948 travelled to Oakengates with his mother Deanna Valentine bates in 1948 at 2 months of age. Died same year in Oakengates. Address I have on ship record is 37 Walton ave Oakengates.

Hi Perthtasha

Telford Council manages 3 cemeteries, the nearest looks to be Wellington about 3 miles from Oakengates

http://www.telford.gov.uk/info/20090/deaths_funerals_and_cremations/323/cemeteries_and_crematoriums

The website suggests you contact the Register Office but I don't think that is correct.

but give it a go and see if they can help

Hello

The nearest Church Yard/Cemetery is Wombridge Church which is only yards away from Walton Avenue.
