Cremation Records
published by Pat Hase - 19 days ago.

It is possible that a Newspaper announcement might give details of where the funeral or cremation was to take place.  What was the name of your g grandmother?  Arnos Vale Cemetery and Crematorium in Bristol might have been used for North Somerset residents.  I believe that members of the HASE family were cremated there in 1964.  There is a Remembrance Book for Cremations at Edbon Road but  as it only contains information put in by relatives it is not complete and there is a Garden of Rest in Milton Road Cemetery where ashes might be buried.  Have you searched our transcriptions?

January 2022 Newsletter

...yes, think I will avoid January 6th for accessing the 1921 census - I'll just be patient for a couple of days (she said -  gnawing her knuckles!!)

Don't forget to revisit the British Newspaper Archive from time to time - they are constantly adding material - and now (hurrah!) seem to be digitising material which, technically, are not newspapers - such as weekly Chronicles and Journals.

It's difficult for most of us to appreciate how life was like before the NHS and free schooling - the constant worry about financing both must have been a tremendous strain.

Happy New Year to us all...
