Got a death entry for Lily Dyson but it gives information that doesn't add up. The Lily I'm looking for lived at 220 King James St, Walkley, daughter of William, hand file cutter.
This entry has Lily dying at 220 King James St but the informant is William (miner), widower of Lily who resides at Bracken Hill, Chapeltown.
Could this be 2 entries mixed up?
St. Mary, Walkley, Sheffield.
Lily Dyson aged 39yrs of 220 King James Street, buried 17 May 1910.
There is no other information in the burial register.
Thanks very much for the reply. It looks as it's definitely the right Lily in that case.
Two other pieces of information in the burial register are the grave reference and the name/denomination of the minister. Since the cemetery has people of several denominations we recorded the ministers.
The grave reference is G554 and these are all the burials recorded for this grave:
DYSON Ann Grace 21 Mar 1928 79 Wynyard Rd 76y Frank K. Mitchell
DYSON Edward 3 Apr 1951 193 Marlcliffe Rd. 74y Neil C. Fisher
DYSON John 30 Jul 1904 (Royal Infirmary) 21y Rev. W. Lenwood, Cong. Min.
DYSON Lily 17 May 1910 220 King James St. 39y Ceremony by Rev. T.T.James, Cong. Minister
DYSON William 9 Oct 1915 220 King James St. 64y Sydney T.G. Smith
[dates are dates of burial, the last name is the minister]
Sidney Smith is the only Anglican I immediately recognise (he was Vicar of Walkley)
There is a memorial but it only lists names:
In / loving memory / of / JOHN DYSON /
WILLIAM DYSON. LILY DYSON /
and ANN GRACE DYSON /
