Hi nottsgirl1, thank-you for your reply and advice. Ah well both days were nice and sunny and in a strange way it was good to explore the General cemetery, both my wife and I were born and lived in Nott'm many years and had never been before. I'm not sure the bramble cuts on my hands were welcome! It's a shame there is no headstone as Isaac Cheetham seems to have been quite a character his funeral was a black horse and carriage so high was his standing (trumpeter to the High Sherriff, Storekeeper for The Robin Hood Rifles). Not a total waste we did find his Uncles Headstone also an Isaac Cheetham, an Officer in the
Army.
I didn't know about the daughter Catherine so that is very useful, thanks, and yes please about the burial.
Wilford Hill will be a future email
