Monmouth cemetery burial query
« on: Saturday 17 August 19 23:28 BST (UK) »
Hi
 
I'm looking to track the burial of Dorothy Bowers and her family. There were from nearby Herefordshire originally, but lived in Monmouth on New Dixton Road  prior to and during WW2.

I've tried learning about burial registers in Monmouth, without success. The father Albert Bowers died in Nov 1943. Is anyone able to check Monmotuh cemetery burial indexes, or point me to them?

More info on Bowers here:

Many thanks,
matt

Albert is the only Bowers shown in the death registrations in Abergavenny District, which covers Monmouth.  Dorothy and her mother are registered in Hereford District, so they obviously left Monmouth after Albert's death in 1943.

There is also the possibility that none of them are "buried", all of them might have been cremated.
Transcriptions and NBI are merely finding aids.  They are NOT a substitute for original record entries.
