Hello Mike I wonder if I could be really cheeky and ask you to look up the following. Charlotte Elizabeth Dawson b. 12 Jul 1889 died abt. Sept 1971 in Leicester also her husband Cecil Dawson b. 20 Feb 1895 died abt. Dec 1971 From what older relatives have told me, they were buried in Leicester - I'm trying to find out if it would be Welford Road cemetery. Thank you in advance Kate

Mike, Hats off to the lady in cemeteries at New Walk!!! It seems Great Grandma Agnes Crawford Butler nee Heatherill (who I was looking for last time we met at Gilroes!!) IS still there - have been given the number of a nice man who will take me to show me where the grave is - was sure she'd got up and walked, but it seems she's just where she's been since 1942!!! Happy New Year!! Maggie

Mary Wife. 52. born Frisby. and Mary A, Smith Grand daughter. 4. b Toron.?..Sorry but never heard of this village & can't figure it out from image neither MIKE.

Greeting’s Again Sarah ….. Your quote :- Added by Sarah Wragg on 16/01/2007 12:01:20 hi mike re harriett smith baptism 30/6/1883 ' Unquote.' Is this a typing error 1883.? Otherwise how can you have her on 1861. & 71. Censuses ? My quote :- Re your Harriett Smith I'm afraid Harriett goes to ground after the 1851. Census. ' Unquote ' By this I meant I could not find her on the 1841. Census. ….Sorry. But that Benjamin Smith on the 1851. census looks a good bet for Harriott's parents ? especially when I have found on the I.G.I. batch No's CHRISTENING'S Allis Smith. 31st. June. 1831. Queniborough. Father :- Benjamin Smith. Mother :- Mary. HARRIOT Smith. 30th. June. 1833. Queniborough. Father :- Benjamin Smith. Mother :- Mary. MIKE.
