Welcome to our forum ~ please post your questions below.
Are there any plans to add the burial records for St Philips church in the near future? Thanks
Transcriptions are on FMP, who are you looking for?
Hi I’m looking for my ancestor Samuel Swinden who died at 77 Martin Street in May 1916. I can’t seem to find him anywhere!
Hi Sarah, have you tried :- ( www.lastnames.myheritage.com/Swinden ) at the present they are offering a 14 day free trial.
also perhaps Pat Swinden will see your request and get in touch.
regards Barry Green
I don't find him on FMP or Ancestry or the National Burial Index CD.
He is on FMP, but as SWINDIN. Grave NP966 in Wardsend Cemetery.
Same address, but different grave and spelling...
Sarah Ann SWINDON
buried 29 Dec 1928
77 Martin St
I can't find any other burials in NP966
NP235 has two other burials: Sydney GOODINSON 1927 and Charles SARGEANT 1929. This may be a public grave.
As far as I can tell from the plans, neither grave has a gravestone.
Thanks so much Hugh for solving my mystery! It seems I have a growing number of ancestors buried in Wardsend cemetery. He’s my black sheep & went to prison several times throughout his life for theft. He began in his teens & even went to reform school for 5 years. It’s not a surprise that there wasn’t a grave stone considering !!
