I have found a burial record for Thomas BRAGG at Taunton, Somerset 5th June 1824 in the England and Wales, Non-Conformist Record Indexes. Not sure what it will show but can sks please look it up for me?

Also for Sarah BRAGG, same place, on 4 July 1828.

I believe these are my gggg grandparents.

Their children were christened at Mary Street Presbyterian & Paul Street Independent, both in Taunton.

Sarah (b. 30/12/1798, chr. 9/8/1799)
James (b. 20/12/1801, chr. 17/2/1802, d. before 1806 - possible burial June 1802)
James (b. 4/8/1806, chr. 2/9/1806) - a tailor...my ggg grandfather
Mary Ann (b. 8/3/1809, chr. 25/6/1809)

Thinking there are probably other chn but can't find them (nor Thos & Sarah's marriage).

(NB I have James' marriage, death, chn and on 1851 & 1861 censuses.)

ooh thanks Chris, haven't seen that before!

ODERY - what an unusual surname

I found the burials on the LDS site...but it has no detail.
