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.

I have been eagerly following the updates of the East Brent church records - Thankyou. The family I am following is of Robert Coombs 1790 and Sarah Bryant 1791. They appeared to have children by the names of John, Thomas, Ann, Maria and Martha. However, in 1941 the census shows another girl Maria born in 1935 staying with them who is the family connection with me. This Maria Coombs married George Pym (1935) of Brean and moved to Australia. I can't find evidence that she was actually born into this family. Interestingly though, her 'older sister Maria' died at the age of 14 in 1934.
