    I wonder if they are buried at General Cemetery? though I'm not sure when they stopped taking burials.

I can't find a Sarah born Whitwick on her own though.
    I sort of remember looking at Ravenstone for some reason it was a family that I thought might be connected, though I did look at going backwards with William but he seems to be even more of an enigma!

    Just looked through my burials. There was a grave that had the first person interred in 1919 at General Cemetery. Also still being accepted at Basford and Bulwell.

    ahh thank you Lin.

    I'm now trying to find her brother in the census too, but he is in London with wife/children in 1891.

    Charles Holmes b. 23 March 1862 marries Clara Sisson in 1884 ADLZ they then move to London where Charles is a police constable. I have them in 1881/1901/1911/1939 but not 1891.


    1881: https://search.ancestry.co.uk/cgi-bi...48&usePUB=true

    1901: https://search.ancestry.co.uk/cgi-bi...&rhSource=7572

    Clara dies in 1911 he resigns from the police force in 1912. I think he dies in 1943 in Leicestershire.

    haven't tracked the children yet, but seems like Maud was b.1892 in London so the family should be in London 1891, I just can't see them!
