Ooh, that's brilliant, Mike, thanks very much indeed.

Does your disc include Nonconformist (probably Baptist) burials, and if not, would the Record Office have them?

Greeting's Again....... Mary.

If you take it that the Burials Plots U. =.in Unconsecrated Ground .
Then only for Welford Road I'm afraid.

But having said that I understand that if the Chapel.has not got their own burial ground then they use the Unconsecrated Ground of the Parish Church.

OK, thanks :-)

The burials of William Wood North and his wife Elizabeth were interesting - did you notice she was buried only a week later than him?

I already have his death cert., and he died of pneumonia, so I suppose she caught it too. I haven't got her death cert so far because she's the second wife and not related to me, but I think I might get it out of curiosity.

Hi All
I wondered if you could help me as you have in the past with my Gamble side of the family.
If you can remember i could not find Edward Gamble and Elizabeth Gamble (nee Goode) the parents of Job on any census but i have now located them in Coventry well Job and Edward and Edwards wife is now an Ann so i was going to ask if there was a marriage between an Edward and an Ann in the Wistow area and surrounding which would say that Edward was a widow. Thank you Donna
Sorry should of said from 1828 to 1841...which would be when Elizabeth died as Job was born 1828 and Ann was in place by 1841 ...once again thank you.
