Hi
I live close to BULWELL NORTHERN CEMETERY and am willing to take photos of any grave in there

plus basford cem, only small and only about half the graves have headstones but willing to look

please give as much detail as poss,

it may take me a while as grave yard is quite big, so if you don't have a grave number its a lot of searching, but the staff are very helpful there

Claire

PS -ADDED LATER, PLEASE INBOX ME YOUR REQUEST THEN I WILL NOT MISS ANY THANKS

Hi Claire,

Do the staff at Bulwell allow you to search their grave records if you don't know if you don't know that the person you are looking for is buried there or not, or do they charge a fee and do it themselves

Hi Claire

I was going to ask the same question as Wendy, when i rang the Nottingham cemeteries they wanted £30-00 to do a search.

I dont know if my Gt Grandmother is buried there in the Northern Cemetery, but she died in Nottingham in 1927, and lived at Bulwell

Hi George,

Its Wendy, I can do a search of the General Cemetery and Church Cemetery and Basford Cemetery at Nottingham Archives but they dont have records for Bulwell or Wilford Cemeterys.

Hi Claire

I hope its not a problem for you but here are the details of my Gt Grandmother.

My Gt Grandmother was born in 1862 in Bulwell Nottingham, she died on the 1st of February 1927.

Her birth name was Elizabeth Richardson, she married twice, her first was to Thomas Drury my Gt Grandfather, then she married a James Niblett, sometimes Niblett is spelt with two Bs, so she died as Elizabeth Niblett

She actually died in the Nottingham Poor Law Union Workhouse Infirmary, which as you know is now the City Hospital.

Her home address on her death certificate was

7 Charles terrace
Spring Road

Bulwell.


I hope you can help, as i said i do not know if she is buried there or not.

Hi Claire,

I called into Wilford Hill only yesterday (as I live in Clifton) looking for the graves of my grandmother and great grandparents graves who I know is buried there and they told me it would be £30 each person for them to look their graves up. So I would think they charge the same for the other cemeteries they are in charge off.

Thanks anyway.

wendy

did you tell them it was for your family tree or that you was looking for a family grave??

i rang up only a few days ago and ask for detail of a grave and the lady was most helpful, told me everyone in the grave- the grave owner and where he lived at the time

i think it depends on who you get

i have been spending many hours at the grave yard any way looking for my family graves and dont mind looking for others if they will not give details so offer still stands

Hi Claire,

Thank you very much. Can I ask you said plot p4 41 I have a map of Bulwell Cemetery and can see p4 but what does the 41 mean please.

Wendy

Christine2 Report 12 May 2011 15:51

Can you tell me where you got the map of the cemetery from please Wendy? I have in laws buried there and I know the number but wouldn't know how to find the grave.
The P4 will be the area and the 41 will be the actual grave number I think.

Claire

Claire Report 12 May 2011 16:34

Hi Wendy
Christine's info is right, The 41 is the grave number

Hi Wendy

Thank you very much for the offer but I have just realised that you were talking about Wilford Hill. It's the Bulwell Northern Cemetery that mine are in.
