Crowle enquiry
« on: Monday 12 November 18 21:47 GMT (UK) »
I am trying to find the burial place of my paternal great grandparents, John Thompson (1879 - 1973) and Lily (Lilly) Thompson (1879 - 1957).
They lived in Crowle Lincolnshire. I have visited St Oswald's Church in Crowle but there are relatively few headstones. Also, although I was quite young, I was present at John Thompson's burial in 1973 and St Oswald's just doesn't look like the place I attended (both he and his wife died in Crowle).
Any help from local records would be much appreciated!

Hi Bilham

It looks like the town council manages a cemetery in addition to the churchyard.

http://crowleandealandcouncil.org/

you should try contacting them about the burials.

They aren't listed which may mean there is no headstone.

Many thanks for the replies. Through the wonders of Google Maps (and Google Earth) I have found the cemetery and it looks like the one. I've also sent a message to Crowle Council....let's hope they reply!
