John Robert stanfield burial

I wonder if someone can assist me please on the above.

According to the GRO he died in the Sheffield area on 1949 he would have been 87ish

still on the same family John Haslam Turner was born in 1856 circa the Doncaster area but not yet found a death for him. I am sure though I have found him on the 1921 census which rules out a WWI death

any help onm the above would be appreciated but no doubt I will have to get my eyes tested because the info somewhere on here.

Re: John Robert stanfield burial


John Robert Stanfield.......You have FMP and there are 13 results for him.

His burial is on our site (did you check it)

STANFIELD, R. John (Retired, age 87).
Died at 12 Kingsley Park Avenue; Buried on May 21, 1949 in Unconsecrated ground;
Grave Number 120, Section B of Darnall Cemetery, Sheffield.
Parent or Next of Kin if Available: ~. Remarks: from Sheffield Parish Officiating Minister J W Roebuck.

BUT as you will note he is listed as R. John not John R.

Darnall Cemetery was transcribed by Friends of Burngreave Cemetery and if you want to verify the information you would need to contact them.

Contact person found under our MI's section.


Re: John Robert stanfield burial

Elaine, thank you I have just found the info on this site, his wife has been indexed as ann Mary and not Mary Ann.

I will contact Burngreave at a later Date but as you know that is where dave Yates was a volunteer so Christine Steers might be busy with other matters

May I suggest you take Dave Yates contact address off here.


PS no idea why I missed him on FMP

Re: John Robert stanfield burial

Cheers Barry must start using family search again it has obviously got lots more info on it since I last used it many moons ago.

Ellis don't think he was a prisoner do you? Does it say if he went with Christiana his wife?


Re: John Robert stanfield burial

Ellis island was the clearing house for all immigrants to the USA.

Re: John Robert stanfield burial

It is my understanding that Ellis Island was the immigration processing site for all 3rd class passengers arriving in USA. First and second class would be quickly cleared on their ship at the port of arrival and only those with legal problems or who were sick would join the 3rd class on the ferry to Ellis Island where the process was more rigourous.

Re: John Robert stanfield burial

Just a note that the info on this site regarding the burial of John Robert Satnfield.

The info on this site referring him as R John Stanfield is correct.

Christine has replied to my request to check.

Regarding Family search, is it easy to navigate now as not used for ages and not sure even if my accounbt has closed.
