Anglesey Burials
« on: Sunday 11 November 18 20:28 GMT (UK) »
Hi everyone

I have been researching my Morris family history name for some time now and it traces back to anglesey in North Wales.

I have found a burial record for my 3rd ggf William Morris who was buried in 1856 in llanfair Pg . I also believe his wife and one of his sons to be buried in the same grave .

However having searched the cemetary that was most likely to have the grave I was unable to locate it and was told to contact the local rector . I have emailed the rector whose contact details I got off the internet but have received no reply .

I'm not quite sure where else to try I tried the local town council but was told to contact the rector .

Any help appreciated thanks in advance

You say you have 'searched' the cemetary, it is possible that there is no headstone

Hi Rosie

Yes it is highly possible no headstone is at the grave . His son a William Morris buried in beaumaris had no headstone either .

Williams grave in Llanfair PG is likely to also have his wife and his son Benjamin Morris who I have again found a burial record for 1870 in Llanfair PG but again unable to locate a gravestone .

I'm basically looking for the location in the cemetary of the grave as even with no headstone the location of the grave must be in some records held somewhere.

I suspect that the church is the only place that will know the burial location if it is available.
