Help finding an old post. Re Newspaper cuttings of Travellers/gypsy funeral.
« on: Thursday 09 September 21 11:46 BST (UK) »
Hello All,

The very old post had info of a newspaper cutting about Traveller/Gypsy funeral caravan. I think it was the last 'grandad' and he 'went' with his van.
The area could have been Bucks.. High Wycombe. Abt 1950/60's.

Thank you
Lesanne.

Using "funeral gypsy newspaper site:www.rootschat.com" on google comes up with several possibilities.
Eva family in Devon and Cornwall.
Bowdidge family in Devon and Dorset.

Thank you. Gallicrow.
 Yes, I did go through that too. Nothing found that matches High Wycombe 1950/60 though...
