Denbigh burials 1845 and 1869
« on: Friday 11 January 19 18:21 GMT (UK) »
Hi, a question that someone with local knowledge might be able to help me with please. According to https://www.genuki.org.uk/big/wal/DEN/Denbigh/churches there are 4 churches in Denbigh. I'm trying to determine which churchyard my ancestors were buried in. Dates are 15 Apr 1845 and 19 Jan 1869 and the Parish is just listed as Denbigh.

Only RC members with a FindMyPast subscription etc will be able to open those links.  It asks me to register when I click on them.   Can you give the details in manuscript form please?

Hi

Using this link, I would think that the earlier burial service would be at St Marcella and the later one at St Marys (add - or maybe Marcella)

The church of St. Marcella (or Marchell) stands on the Llandyrnog road, more than a mile east of the town of Denbigh. It is also known as Whitchurch (Eglwys Wen), possibly because its exterior walls were at one time whitewashed. Despite being so far from the town, it is in fact the original parish church of Denbigh.

St. Mary's now serves, to all intents and purposes, as the parish church of Denbigh.
