I am researching a Miss Norah Leary who died on 14th December 1937 she died in a snow storm at a place called Midhopestones Sheffield. I have found records saying her death was recorded in Wortley but would like to know where she was buried and if there would be a grave stone, with any details on the stone.

Hi Marlene

She was buried on 18 December 1937 in Tinsley Park Cemetery, grave number IA87gp.
The record gives her address as 34 Birch Road, Sheffield.


Just found a newspaper article about Nora. She was out rambling with some friends when a huge blizzard hit; she died of exposure bless her. I'll try and email you a copy of the article

Re: Burial

Would there be anyone who could check for me to see if there would have been a grave stone would be interesting to see what inscription would be seen if anything is mentioned about the horrific death. I do have an newspaper article of the tragic death I also have a copy photo of a group of men carrying her body on a very icy country lane. A photo of the grave would be appreciated if possible as I live too far away to check this out.
