Ruabon Parish Church MI
« on: Monday 12 November 18 14:46 GMT (UK) »
Good afternoon fellow RootsChatters

I am hoping to find two burials, both wives of Maurice William Ling of Victory Garage, Ruabon.   He is buried at Ruabon with his third wife, his baby grand-daughter and his son in law.  I do not believe that these ladies are buried with him as he did not pass away until 1964.

The first lady is Ethel Coe Ling she died in April/May 1928 at the Women's Hospital, Liverpool. Found her - she was buried back in Essex, her birth town.

and the second lady, my husband's grandmother, died in September 1934 after childbirth in Ruabon.

Thank you very much
Nesta

You didn,t mention the name of the 2nd wife - I assume it was Hilda from looking through the death registers.

Sorry ! I did totally forget

Thank you for such a prompt reply.

Of course - I was sending it through the airwaves (lol).

Yes it was Hilda Frances Elleanor Ling (previously Lincoln)

I've had a search through the newspapers - I can't seem to see anything...

Not finding anything so far on her. Was she local?

No she was originally from Bury St Edmunds.

My mother in law was some 2 weeks old when she died - September 1934.

Thank you

Nothing online about burials that recent for Ruabon and no newspaper reports for 1934. I've checked the online burials for Wrexham Cemetery, just in case, but nothing showing.  Your best bet might be someone local being able to check the back copies of the Wrexham Leader .

I've just remembered, from years ago, about a considerable number of graves/stones being moved because they were next to the big bend on the old A483 - Pentre to Wrexham - road before it was upgraded. I don't think it would affect the 20C graves, though. I remember the bend as I passed by on the Crossville bus  pretty regularly in the early 1960s .

Thank you very much for looking for me.   I appreciate the help ...
I can imagine that it was a bit of a crisis when she died as they had a young baby to deal with and he and the family must have been devastated ... they had only been married a year 😪
I shall make enquiries to see if the burial register is still with the church.
