Hi, I recognised the name DYER. There was a George Dyer who was apprenticed to my 3 x great grandfather, Joseph James, a builder, in 1857. I have something written about him on my blog about my ancestor below. However the dates would be quite different so maybe it’s a different one? https://meetmyancestor.com/ancestors/joseph-james-1805-1875/

Thanks Graham, how frustrating! So does this basically mean that he was buried in St John's graveyard somewhere, but we'll just never know where? Argh! Hate hitting a dead end haha!

As you have already established Richard Fry was buried in St John's in 1855 but but his burial location is unknown. He was not buried in Milton Road Cemetery as burial their did not commence until May 1856. You will find the burial transcripts covering the period 1856-1970 for Milton Road Cemetery on this site.

Congratulations to Brian! And very well deserved. He helped me immensely by sending me all sorts of valuable information about my ancestors!

I spotted this note on the Milton Cemetary section, "As a result of the Burial Act in the early 1850s, Weston was given permission to open a Municipal Cemetery and at the same time the existing Burial Grounds at St John’s and Emmanuel were closed to new burials.  The Cemetery is now run by Weston-super-Mare Town Council." Could this be why the FRY's aren't at St John's even though they're in the register? Where would they have been buried if they weren't buried there though?
