Tracey....You have the info.of dob/dod ...Do you not know his actual "Place of Birth" ?... You may be able to locate his Obit in the appropriate Newspaper for that area...equally it may well have been listed in a local London paper...

Hello

Its been a while, but GREAT NEWS i have found the burial place for Noel in Ireland... But a he is in a double grave with his parents and looks like a nephew... The grave has also been purchased by someone else i have never heard of... So two questions

1) how do i find out who the person is who purchased the grave? - she has same surname as Noel and defo a relative

2) How do i get the death certificates of Noel's parents? (now i have a burial date for them)

thanks x

This site gives details for ordering certs:

Have you tried asking the Cemetery officials if they would forward a letter to the new owner if they will not give you her contact details?

Hello Potty

Thankyou!

I do have part of an address of the person who purchased the grave (this was sent with the other info in an e-mail)... Just wondering now how i go and find the rest of it and then i will have to think very hard how i approach this lady (if still alive)... It's never easy writing a letter x
