Hi

This sounds like Belper Cemetery which is situated on the A6 at Broadholme just north of Belper.

You would need to contact Amber Valley Borough Council to find exactly where in the cemetery he is buried there is quite a large charge for the info.

Death details
Apr-May-Jun
Registration district:   Belper
Inferred County:   Derbyshire
Volume:   3a
Page:   38

Find a Grave and Billion Graves do not report any grave details.

The Bereavement services at the Council can give you the grave details ie Area and Plot number, but there will be a fee.

Cemetery Maps are usually available either online or via Bereavement Services.

Posting his details on Find a Grave and Billion Graves may elicit a response by someone in the area taking images of the grave and posting them on the memorial website.  Do be warned though that there may not be any memorial.

This will give you an idea of the cemetery

Hi,

Norman died as a result of fractured skull, the inquest found that he was hanging on the back of a lorry and fell off.

The family were living at Ambergate and the report in is the Ripley & Heanor news 9th May 1947.

Thank you Spendlove , i  already have  the newspaper article on his inquest  and have  his remembrance of baptism  certificate  at Ambergate parish church dated November 12th 1939 . Will check on find a Grave and Billion Graves in case  but i am pretty certain they is no memorial .
