Burial Plot Map for Milton Road Cemetery
published by gricharduk on Fri, 17/01/2020 - 11:01

Good Morning,

I have a couple of family members interred in Milton Road Cemetery. I know the plot numbers (from the very helpful transcripts on this site): In short, how do I go about finding where in the cemetery they are interred so I can visit their graves? I noticed a general area map on the cemetery noticeboard but I cannot work out how to tie the plot numbers to the actual cemetery area. I do know they are both buried on consecrated ground. Lastly, did anything ever come of this Digital Map of Milton Road Cemetery project?

Thank you very much for any help or advice,

Lewis Henry SHERBORNE and Mary Bridget MURPHY
published by Pat Hase on Wed, 01/01/2020 - 23:08

Happy New Year!  I received this query yesterday and wondered whether any of you had connections with this family or knew what happened to them.  Lewis H SHERBORNE was born in 1910 at the White Hart at Congresbury - It's still there, on the Wrington Road out of Congresbury. He married Mary Bridget MURPHY in 1945 but no one seems to know what happened to them afterwards.  They had a daughter who was adopted in 1946 and went to Australia with her adoptive parents.  Eliza SHERBORNE, Lewis's mother, was still the Inn Keeper of the White Hart when she died in 1961 and was buried in Congresbury.  Thank you.

Richard OGBORN - Winford and Nempnett Thrubwell
published by Pat Hase on Fri, 06/12/2019 - 12:19

I need a second (or third) opinion!  One of my 4 x great grandfathers was a Benjamin OGBORN, s/o Richard and Mary OGBORN and baptised in Nempnett Thrubwell in 1760.  There is a marriage of a Richard OGBORN to a Mary PARKER in Winford on the 3 Jan 1756. But Mary PARKER was a widow.   What was her maiden name?

Gallop Tea Gardens, Dundry
published by ACEdwards on Thu, 21/11/2019 - 9:56

I hope that someone can help me with information. I have seen a photo of "GALLOP's tea gardens, Dundry" (in the Philip Gallop Collection) which I guess was taken circa 1920's. Can anyone tell me where the tea garden was, who in the GALLOP family ran it and between what dates. Trying to locate the property from the photo, using the school bell tower as a guide, I think that it may have been located in Hill Road.
