I'm a historian in America trying to find the descendents of Elia Estella "Stella" Aldwinckle, b. 16 December 1909; d. 28 December 1989. Her father was Herbert John Aldwinckle, her brother was Aylmer. Stella attended Westcliff, and I believe her aunt taught at Westcliff. Stella went on to live most of her adult life in Oxford. Any assistance would be appreciated.
We had an enquiry on Saturday at the Library about a Rev Walter Buchanan WIGHTMAN who had been involved in the setting up of the Axbridge War Memorial and he was said to have come from Weston. The question was - "With which church was he connected in Weston?". We were told that he had died in 1930 aged 70 but they couldn't find any mention of him in censuses, civil registration or in Crockfords.

I am looking for any information about the Lamb Inn, Locking Rd, Weston where according to the 1871 census my ancestor George Champney was the landlord. In the 1881 census he is listed as a grocer and porter of 17 Locking Rd and I am wondering if these are the same places?
I am trying to find the grave of Ernest Baildon who died at Weston-super-Mare in 1962. He was the Black Sheep of the family. He ran away from home in Blackpool and married a woman of whom his family disapproved.
Does anybody have access to burial records in Weston-super-Mare?
If anybody wants details of a family member from Blackpool or Lancashire, I might be able to help as I can access local records.

Is anyone aware of a boarding house that was operating in 1911 - St Denis, Drove Road, run by Kate Coombs. Also is it possible to access school records in Weston-Super-Mare for the years 1916-1926. I am looking for the name Guy Kenneth Marshall Cormack.
