Cemetery for Harry Goddard - death 1955 Reading
« on: Wednesday 15 May 19 07:34 BST (UK) »
Hi,
I am trying to find grave records for Harry Goddard who died in Reading aged 63 years in 1955.
Wondering if someone could assist me in this regard, and looking for a photograph of grave, if possible.
His Mother Kate Goddard who died in 1953, could also be in the same grave, not sure.
Regards

Rosie,
I do hope I have the right date of death of Harry Goddard, we have his occupation as being a Hotel Manager, which he had been doing for some time, even when in Australia.   His address in 1939 census was 10 Bulmarshe Road, Reading, where he was living with his Mother Kate Goddard.
She died in 1953 aged 89 years, as far as we know.   Let's hope we can connect the two of them up.

Thank you Jon, that has me puzzled now, with this Harry Goddard with occupation of Motor Engineer.
Certainly have the correct lady with Kate Goddard, but have my doubts now about Harry Goddard.

My apologies for this, but I have just discovered that Harry Goddard (Henry) married Bessie Latch in 1953 at Reading.   Information received indicates that he died 29.7.1964 he was living at 6 Fairview Avenue, Earley.   

Hope this may solve the problem now.

It was the executor that had the occupation of Motor Engineer  :)

There is no Henry/Harry Goddard death registration for Reading /Wokingham that fits a July 1964 death.  If he died at Earley this Wokingham death would fit but too soon for a July death
Death Jun qtr 1964   
GODDARD    HARRY    72    WOKINGHAM    6A   239

Death was 25 May and 'burial' 29 May 1964 also at Henley Rd Crematorium

Rosie,
Got it, that has to be absolutely right, thank you so much for this.    Now to see if I can contact Henley Road Crematorium, to see if we can get a photo.   It would be so important for our family members here in Australia, as this was their Grandfather, whom they never knew about, until we finally found him after intensive searching, via DNA matches.

Wondering if anyone has history on the Goddard family that had a Butchery Business in Reading in the early days.   George Goddard was born 1863 at Reading, it seems the business had existed for some time prior, with a James Goddard originally being a Cattle Dealer.  They lived at St. Giles, Reading.

If anyone could assist that would be great.  Thanking you.
