Question about some graves in Nottingham General Cemetery
« on: Sunday 03 June 18 22:11 BST (UK) »
Hi everyone,

I don't know if anyone can help me, but seeing previous posts some people have asked similar questions and people here have kindly been able to help. I have some relatives buried in the General Cemetery and I'm going up on Tuesday, I wanted to know if headstones exist for the graves im looking for, and even better if anyone has any maps or even rough location where within the cemtery i would need to be looking.
The graves are
1783
20259
15040
3522

Thanks in advance for any help!
best, Tom

Hi Tom,

I have a database with gravestone monuments for General Cemetery but those graves are not on it so looks like no stones.  The cemetery is very large so you would be looking for a needle in a hay stack, your best bet would be to get in touch with the cemetery office at Wilford Hill Cemetery who has the records for the cemetery to see if they can send you a map with the graves marked on.

Hi, Thank you very much for checking that for me! I was hoping with 4 of them that at least one might have a headstone, but such is life!

Hi, NG1--

I've just joined Rootschat, so I hope I'm querying correctly.  I see that you mentioned to Tom, above, that you have a database of gravestone monuments in General Cemetery, and I wondered if you'd be willing to see if grave number 15440 is one of them.  I'm interested in a stone or stones for members of the Graham and Meats families -- several have death certificates indicating grave number 15440.  Many thanks for any help you can provide.

Hi,

Just in case Tom doesn't come back to you. Along with your grave number, records should show which section of the graveyard the grave is in. I have a record of the sections but not where each individual grave is.

I dont know where you found the grave number - but the archives at Nottingham - if I recall correctly - have a computer database of names and graves.
Areas: Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Northamptonshire and Leicestershire.

Main Names: Wood, Taylor, Beckworth, Whysall, Hull [and many others when I go off on a tangent!! lol]

Hi, M D,

Sorry to have taken time to get back to you but didnt get a message saying about your post until lainie had posted today.

First time I have heard that grave numbers on death Certificates.

Anyway had a look on my database, which was provide by Notts Family History Society, but no grave monument for grave 15540.  I did however find that there are 18 Meats surname on the dateabase but none with a grave number, so if you can give names and dates you are looking for I can see if they are there.  As for Surname Graham there is one grave monument for a Robert Charles Graham and his wife Mary and looks like 8 of their children all not named on stone but the grave number is 12450.

As for grave 15540 when Nottingham Archives reopens after the lockdown when ever that will be I can  check the burial records for you.

Lanine,

i don't think the achieves now have the database on their computers anymore  well not the last time I was there anyway and that was just before the lock down began.

All the best and hope you all keep well
