Guidance required on how to find burials
« on: Tuesday 08 January 19 20:43 GMT (UK) »
Hello all

The new year brings a re boot on my Family Tree activities. I'm quite pleased with what I've found so far in many ways.
One of the things I would like to improve on is finding burials of 2nd great grandfather say and then great grandmother.

They would have lived and died not far from where I live, N Wales and Cheshire. I have walked around quite a few of the local churchyards. I have subscriptions to the 2 "popular" websites and registered on deceased online finding nothing really.

The two deaths I know the dates for are 1924 and 1883.

It's "how to" advice I'm after rather than getting somebody to do it for me! (Not wishing to sound ungrateful for any advice) I can go after a few others then.

Many thanks
Ian

The first thought would be to get their death certificates to get their last addresses if you don't already know them.
Newspaper obituaries and wills are other avenues to explore.
I am Australian, from all the lands I come (my ancestors, at least!)

Pine/Pyne, Dowdeswell, Kempster, Sando/Sandoe/Sandow, Nancarrow, Carrington, Hounslow, Youatt, Richardson, Jarmyn, Oxlade, Coad, Bentham, Holloway, Lindner, Pittaway, and too many others to name.
Devon, Dorset, Gloucs, Cornwall, Yorks, Bucks, Oxfordshire, Wilts, Germany, Sweden, and of course London, to name a few.

Hello
Familysearch.org is worth a look at. you need to register but it is free.

Local newspapers do often have obituaries in them. If you are looking for any in the Hyde/Stalybridge part of Cheshire, local newspapers are available to read on film at Tameside Local Studies at Ashton under Lyne library.

Thanks for the replies. I'll have another look at papers though not found much so far.
Sadly I don't think there would have been any need for wills!
