Do you mean you are looking for the place of death? Or have you got the death cert, know where the person died and are looking for the place of burial?

Do you know the date of death?

If you know where he lived & died then try the local council - I think it is usually 'Parks & Cemeteries'

I believe that not every district is helpful but is worth a try.

Ok thank you will give that a try.

If you would like to give some info on the person, like when and where he died, where he lived if died away from home,and his name maybe someone could try and turn something up.??
Was he Chapel or church...??


South Wales is a fairly large area really..

I noted the other day that there are a lot of burials added for the Llanelli area...But where I can not remember right now....Going off to look.

Hi FannyByGaslight.


He live in in New Tredegar Bedwellty and died in Bedwellty The death was registered in Monmouth South Wales. His name was Henry George Whale and he died 17th May 1933 aged 37. I do know it was a church, where Harry Seacome's brother was vicar, but that's all I know, so any help will be brilliant.

Many thanks

Linda

Yes sorry he was buried in the church yard. Have looked but it gives a list of churches, so wasn't sure if there was somewhere else to look to find it

YES SIR!


Hello Linda,

Rev. Fred Secombe was vicar of St. Peter's Church, Cockett, Swansea. I think their records are in the local archives in Glamorgan but the church does have rather a good website so it maybe worth contacting them first.
