People were often buried in a common grave which would have been left un marked however most cemeteries would have noted who was buried where. I had been searching for my grandfather for many years only to discover that he had been buried in a common grave in Bristol, England. After I discovered he had died in Bristol I contacted the local burial services for the local council and they gave me a list of cemetaries for the area and I e-mailed my way around all of them until someone told me they had a listing for him. Our family were then able to mark the grave with his details and pay our last respects. This also was free and well worth the effort.

HI Vikki,

Thankyou for this idea. I shall definitely give this a try. anything is worth doing on this issue.

Hi Marie Celeste

thanks for the link - i found that this one had sort of died and i was looking for anohter person - related but a different search so asked the question.

a lot of info is being rechecked - a lot discarded. i still don't know who Sarah Anne Kelly is or how she was connected to my g- mohter. and i am still tyring to find where on earth my g-mother was buried.

Seems this lady arrived in 1881 had 5 kids then died in 1886 and vanished.
