Timothy WILLIAMS - Buried GRANSTON 1825
« on: Wednesday 26 April 17 08:09 BST (UK) »
Hi
I am trying to find out where exactly this ancestor is buried and if there is a Church/Cemetery/gravestone to visit.
I have found a Burial Record :-
Timothy WILLIAM occ: Tailor of Trefasser age 35 buried GRANSTON 12/7/1825 - John Bowen Curate of Llanwnda.
His daughter Mary Howells age 28 and her husband John Howell age 25 were also buried there in Mar and April 1852.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank-you.

Welcome to Rootschat!

If you find a parish burial at this time, it will be in the churchyard, so St Catherine's, Granston in this case.

Church and churchyard there, but couldn't say if there would be a stone, that was quite oftern beyond the resources of a family left without the main breadwinner. Can't see a will for him.

Hi Osprey

Thank-you very much for this information. 
A relative who is visiting this area in a few weeks will be pleased to have a Churchyard to visit.
I suspect that you are right about no money for a Tombstone.  I have followed his widow and their widowed daughter through the Census until their deaths in 1871 & 1902 respectively and they were living a very hand to mouth existence.

I'll leave this post open for another week in case any William/s descendants happen to see it, and then mark it as finalized.
