Burial Site 1901 Woolaston, ANDERSON (General)

Hi Valmai, sorry for slow reply. Also for misintreting your initial query, but we got there eventually which is main thing. I've searched the forum from various angles, as I'm sure you did, for older threads wrt your query. Sadly I can find nowt re plans or maps of St Andrews graveyard. In fact the few threads are singularly unhelpful, insofar as no helpfull leads were found. This post is typical, and so long ago the instigator is no longer using the forum, sorry

Similarly nothing on the web generally. The usual fallback is this cd from Glos FHS, but Woolaston isn't included.


Altho hopefully someone will get back to you on this forum, meanwhile I suggest you contact the Church directly with your enquiry. I don't know how uptodate these websites are, but a good start I hope

I see the neighbouring Church at Alvington, just over a mile away, ia also St Andrews, I hope no weddings have had anxious delayed starts because of this !

Here's a few more sites you may find of (indirect) interest.

Good luck with your quest, please call back to update us or add anything that may help future queries, thanks.
(I'm not jealous of your searing temperatures by the way, sounds horrible to this Pommie wimp !)

PS this must be your Frederick, from this site's PRs;

Again, no clues whatsoever as to Burial site on this PR.

Think this is correct Burial, Susannah's given age matches her apparent birthdate of 1854 wrt her first marriage, so think the second marriage quoting "30" is not wishful fibbing but a transcript error, presumably misread read from 50 ?
