*** F.A.O. *** Sarah Wragg., Using the details from the 1851 Census return. The below could well be your Family in 1841. :- HO 107/ / 594. / Bk. 9. / Folder. 35. / Page. 19. Within the Hamlet of Woodhouse Eaves. Thomas Clarke. 50. F.W.K. Y. Ann. 50. Ditto. Y Mary. 22. Ditto. Y. Thomas. 15. Ditto. Y. John. 11. Y. William. 5. Y. F.W.K. = Frame Work Knitter. Y. = Yes Born within the County. But owing to the basic information given on the above Census One can not be 100 % sure we have the right Thomas c 1788. because the place of births is not given on this Census. Don’t forget the ages on this Census was rounded DOWN To the nearest multiples of 5. But the Wife’s name & John & William details match up. MIKE.

Greeting’s Again Katherine. …….. The closest I can come up with is the following :~ St. George’s Parish Church ( Closest Parish Church to Upper Charles Street) Name./ Dates./ Age. ALLEN WILLIAM 11 DEC 1836 INF Re explain of your other query ? Re :~ O 743.C. O. = Section. 743. = Grave Plot No. C. = Consecrated Ground. With this details you'll be able to go to the Grave. O Section is in fact close to the Railway ( L.M.S.) Take the path to your LEFT directly you have entered the Cemetery at the main gates. Follow this path round until three paths form a triangle close to a line of trees This Triangle is Section O…. Or just ask at the” Visitors Centre “ just in side main gates on your RIGHT They will direct you to grave site. In the meantime I’ll whiz around my Parish Burial disks to see if I can get an even closer match. Do not forget they Rounded the ages of anyone over the age of 15 DOWN to the nearest multiple of 5 only just for the 1841 Census. also it's a woman's prerogative not to give their correct age. MIKE. UPDATED ....BINGO !!!! St. Margaret's Parish Church. Names. / Dates./ Ages.:~ ALLEN WILLIAM 12 DEC 1837 INF Backed up via G.R.O. Index Records :~ BIRTH:~ Oct. ~ Nev. ~ Dec. Qrt.. 1837. William Allen.

Greeting’s Again. …….. Kathleen. “Your very welcome “ Two Mary Allen’s details for 1837. :~ St. Margaret’s Parish Church. Leicester. Names. / Dates. / Ages. Allen Mary 14 AUG 1837 38 Allen Mary 13 DEC 1837 INF Sorry St. Margaret’s Church did not give plot location details. Looks like the 2nd Mary is the one Were they twins then ? DEATH. via G.R.O. Site :~ Oct. ~ Nov. ~ Dec. Qrt. 1837. Mary Allen. LEICESTER. Cert No. XV. 68. Same Cert No. as for William then ? But having visited this Church I doubt if you will find the plot. It seems that the Church has had a clean up And there are loads of headstones just leaning against the side of the Church ….So you’ll never find out as to the location of the graves. But having said that they just might have a Graveyard plan. If your desperate to find location then drop them a line :~ Contact: Canon Barry Naylor Tel: 0116 262 0788 Our Location: St Margaret's Way Leicester Leicestershire LE1 3EB Sorry. ......
