    Died in Bath Hospital, lived in Trowbridge......burial unknown.

    Just after some ides to locate the burial/cremation details of Eric Reeve Beechey who died in 1954.

    I have the probate index; died at Bath Hospital but resident of Trowbridge, no family names mentioned.
    I've tried BNA & FMP with no results, nothing on deceased online and google search brings up some generic stuff for the family (eg the peerage.com), but most of it based on a very old ged file which I've found to be a bit questionable.

    He was married and there's a 1970's probate that might be for his widow (residence being a hospital in Trowbridge) but I can't be sure it is the same family or if the marriage lasted.

    Perhaps he was buried in the same cemetery as his son if this report does refer to him.

    Mr. Beechey. who was 27. was educated at St. John's School. Bridgwater. and Sexey's School. Bruton. He became articled to the late Mr. H. M. B. Ker and completed his articles with Messrs. Butterworth. Jones. & Co., Castle-street, subsequently, becoming engaged on the staff of the Somerset Rivers' Catchment Board, West Quay. Mr. Beechey was an associate of the Society of Auditors and Accountants, and obtained his degree of Bachelor of Commerce He had acted as treasurer of the Adult School, and was a popular and keen member the Home Guard.
    Service in St. Mary's Church preceded the interment the Quantock-road Cemetery. The Vicar. Preb. E. H. Hughes-Davies. officiated. was draped with a Union Jack. "Abide with me" was sung, Mr. W Rains being at the organ.

        I assume you saw the notice about probate in paper? I think I would be inclined to get the will for £1.50 should give you a clue about wife?

          Ooh, that rules in the marriage of a sister I had been looking at anyway. Probate register I had been looking at is shown below, date of death ties in with the cremation details on deceased online (which for some reason I could never find when searching)

            BNA wasn't playing when I went looking for details of Eric Thomas Beechey but suddenly there's articles falling out the woodwork for the family at Taunton. If nothing else at least I've started to get an idea of when they were in that area and what they were up to. It's filling a gap I knew nothing about.
