Hello
Does any kind person have access to the memorial inscriptions for St Margarets Church at Westminster. I am looking for any information on a William Draycott who died about 1753, and his wife who he is buried with.
Many thanks
Paul

Many thanks Chris
Shame it does not give his age, so we can try and trace a birth. Just hope someone has the MIs

do you know his wife's name?

Hi
Unfortunately no, we don't have her name - his will dated 1752 asks that he be buried alongside his wife at St Margarets at Westminster, and hence my specific request for help with the monumental inscriptions
Many thanks
Paul
