My great grandfather Henry Lynn and his wife Adelaide Lynn were on holiday at Weston-Super-Mare in 1951 they sadly died a couple of days later in hospital, it says on death cert that there was an inquest and a gas tap was accidentally left on? Would there be a chance to obtain the report? Also wondered if it appeared in a local news paper? Any help would be appreciated

I wonder if you can help me, I believe my 3rd Great Grandfather James Currell married Elizabeth Dallimore on the 13th. March 1818 at St. John the Baptist church, Broad St., Bristol. After many searches of parish records etc. I have found no records relating to this church, The lived on Smitham Hill, East Harptree. James died in October 1839. Without any marriage or christening records I am unable to find his parents. I would be very grateful of any help you can give me,
Regards David Currell.

My paternal Grandmother's older sister was Lizzie Jennings HALL. She was born in Aston, Birmingham, in the 3rd quarter of 1876, and trained as a Nurse and Midwife. She was working as a Maternity Nurse in Weston-super-Mare in the 1920s, and living at 5, Clevedon Road. She died on 13 August 1923 of Appendicitis and Pelvic Peritonitis at Weston Hospital (where I assume she had been working).
I do not know where she was buried, but again, assume she was buried in Weston, and not back in the Midlands. I would be very grateful for a look-up in the records of Milton Road Cemetery.

I am looking for some information about Frank and Betsy Anne.
They moved from Littleborough in Lancashire to Weston-super-Mare in the 1950s/1960s. I know Betsy Anne sadly passed away in 1984 aged 64. We can't find anything regarding Frank Buckley on ancestry.com.
If anybody has any information about the above couple from anywhere in Somerset it would be gratefully appreciated .
Just joined and wanted to register my interest in finding out any more about my Pyne ancestors. They first appear in the area with a Christening of Edward in1806 in Tickenham , son of Jospeh and wife Elizabeth. They went on to Christen 9 more children in Weston in Gordano into the 1820's. All of Joseph's sons went on to become blacksmiths and relocated variously to Nailsea, Portishead and Yatton (before my own GGGG Grandfather, Fred Pyne went on to move to London in the 1840's)
