    Worth a try Terry. Nothing ventured nothing gained...as they say.
    Terry.

    Will have a look at Anns Hill cemetery records now then. Won't be until next week though.

    Will keep you posted as to what or if I find anything for you.

    Look up for Terry 49.

    Have checked the Burial Records for Anns Hill Cemetery, Gosport today but unfortunately there was no record of Ernest being buried there. I checked the records from 7th Feb 1904 through to Sept. 1904....just in case!

    Also, had some staff checking the National Burial Indexes for Ernest but again they found nothing. They did say though that these indexes are incomplete.

    Sorry I couldn't help.

    That is Terry49's Ancestor but he is trying to find out where he is buried as he can't find any record of his burial in Portsmouth. I have checked Gosport and Haslar burial records but had not luck either in finding the burial. It still remains a mystery as far as I am aware.

    Hi Lesley and hscott,
    Yes, I'm still looking for Ernest Joseph Butcher. Thanks very much for the thought though, he must be buried somewhere! What I do know he isn't buried with his wife, she isn't buried with her second husband she's buried with two of her daughters. Where on earth can Ernest be?
    Regards
    Terry

    Hi Lesley

    Me again! Have been doing a lot of research, but not in Hampshire any more. However there are the occasional 'gems' that come up, and here are two which you maybe able to help with?

    1) I found an IGI reference to a Sarah Whitcomb who was buried 1n 1808:-

    Name: Sarah Whitcomb
    Gender: Female
    Burial Date: 22 Jun 1808
    Burial Place: Holy Trinity, Gosport, Hampshire, England
    Indexing Project (Batch) Number: I04085-9
    System Origin: England-EASy
    Source Film Number: 1596133Reference Number: 3057

    It is just possible that this was the first wife of George Whitcomb, so I'm keen to find if there is any more information
    on the actual parish record. Even a age at burial would be useful.

    2) For a long time I was curious what happened to Charles Benjamin Whitcomb's first wife Ann Eliza. Recently trying a
    very 'Fuzzy' search on Free BMD I came across a Death index for :-

    Whitcom_ Annie Eliza * 2_ *7

    in the June 1855 quarter. The transcriber could not read the very poor fiche, so there is no locality given. I looked at
    the 'Original' and think I can just make out Alverstoke. (I added a 'Postern' to the Free BMD record)
    Question to you, Lesley, is could you please look at the relevant 1855 quarter and see if you could find the Burial record?

    Thanks again for all your help

    Ray Whitcombe

    Hello Ray, Good to hear from you again! Nice to feel 'wanted' again!

    Will have a look and see what I can find for you. Anns Hill Cemetery (Alverstoke) didn't open until 1855 so hopefully there will be a record of Ann Eliza burial there!

    Will be in touch ASAP

    Message for Raywhit1942

    Hi Ray,

    Ann Eliza Whitcomb, Age 30, Wife of Charles B Whitcomb, Steward RN Buried Anns Hills Cemetery Gosport. 7/4/1855. Plot 57 consecrated.

    Sarah Whitcomb's burial record gave no other information other than her name.

    Did find an Emma Whitcomb died/buried 26/2/1881 Age 77 listed in the Holy Trinity memorial inscription book but knowing you, you probably have that information already!! Probably one of yours anyway!

    Hope this helps

    Lesley
