Photographs and responses to requests for help from the Graves, Burial Records and Photographs Hubpage Surnames A-F
..... and don't forget to visit my Genealogy page on Pinterest for more help with your family tree
Realising that the hub was getting too large I have divided it into three parts:
This one which covers Surnames A-F and here are the links to the other two:
Surnames beginning with A-F that I have photographs and/or information for are detailed below - if you find a surname that you are interested in please use the Comments Box below to tell me which area of the country you are interested in and I will post the information that I have.
Your request will then be transferred and posted alongside the posting which I hope will make things easier for everyone.

Below you can see one gravestone for the name Abbott, as is often the case this was scattered around the graveyard and so having found them I put the pieces back together so that it could be photographed.
Details are: James Abbott born about 1811, died 5 Jan 1893
I had other photographs of a different family of Abbott but my old pc died a death taking them with it, however I am willing to go and re-photograph them if they are ones that you are looking for, the are all buried in St. James Church, Hanslope, Buckinghamshire and here is the information I have on them:
Arthur John Abbot died 8 Oct 1965 and wife Lavinia Abbot died 1 Oct 1931, son George Arthur Abbot died 15 Jun 1918, killed in action in Boscom, Italy and buried in Boscom.
Kate Jemima Abbot died 9 Feb 1940 aged 79 years (wife of Alfred Abbott).
If you have details of who you are looking for I may have more burial information further afield. Let me know and I'll see what I can dig up for you.
ALFORD is unfortunately another one from the archives of the City of London Cemetery, the details I have are as follows and I hope that it helps.
Sarah Alford, burial 27 November 1856, City of London Cemetery - register details: Residence: None, Age: 79 years, District in which the Death is registered: St. James, Clerkenwell, Middlesex, From What Parish Removed: St. James, Situation of Grave: Square 41 number 106, No. of Grant: 196, Description of Interment: 2nd Class Common Interment, Unconsecrated Ground, If Pauper - The Union: Clerkenwell, Ceremony Performed by: James Woodard, Remarks: (Pauper).
If there is a particular area in the UK you are interested in please let me know and I will have a look on the Burial Register and see what I can find for you.
Sandy 5 weeks ago
would love to see photo of graves for Gascoyne and Allgood............can contat me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
This is the information from the parish register for this woman, haven't visited this churchyard but was sent this information, might manage a trip over there in the next couple of months if this person is of particular interest to you.
Susan Allgood, died June 1871, buried St. Nicholas Church, Potterspury, Northamptonshire.
The only digital photographs I have of AMOS family are in Buckinghamshire but I do have some burial info in Essex and one in Kent:
4 Oct 1778 John Amos buried In St. Lawrence & All Saints, Eastwood
15 Oct 1778 Joseph Amos buried in St. Mary the Virgin, South Benfleet
23 Jan 1799 John Amos, age 5, buried in St. Mary, Hawkwell
17 Jan 1809 Susannah Amos, buried in St. Mary, Hawkwell
5 Mar 1809 Susannah Amos, buried in St. Mary, Hawkwell
10 Sep 1819 Elizabeth Amos, 2 weeks old, buried in St. Michael, Fobbing
1 May 1825 Elizabeth Amos, age 4, buried in St. Michael, Fobbing
5 Oct 1825 Robert Amos, age 34 buried St. Paul, Deptford, Kent
I hope these are of use.
@Rose 123, your message "I would be grateful for information that you may have for Temple of Stowe (and Great Dassett, Warws), Andrewes,Lee (all spellings - especially Stantonbury and Great Linford), Claver (also Cleaver) Hart, Tyrrell, Tyrringham in the SEVENTEENTH CENTURY."
I'm afraid I have nothing for the Temple of Stowe or the other names in 17th Century. But I am very excited that someone wants information on the Andrewes as they were connected to the Uthwatt family, owners of Great Linford Manor, and believe it or not once upon a time, my own house, and at least one of the roads nearby is called after the Andrewes family. I have posted a photo of the Manor as the church is actually situated on the grounds of the Manor, you can visit the Manor grounds any time as they are open to the public all year round and in July there is a two day Waterside Festival which we attend every year.
Alice Ashby Roettger 5 weeks ago
Hello, I'm interested in graves that carry the names Ashby, Collett and Lewis.
The Ashby grave would be that of a child in Birmingham, who died in the late 1880s up until about 1910.
The Collett graves would be in Admington.
The Thomas Lewis grave would be in Reading, dated somewhere between 1863 and 1880.
I have found two infant's burials records under the name of Ashby but they are earlier than you stated but I will list them just in case they are of interest to you.
23 Oct 1831 John Ashby, 18 months, buried St. Mary Whittall Street, Birmingham, Warwickshire
17 Mar 1834 William Ashby, 14 months, buried same church.
I'm afraid I have no information on Admington, and no Thomas Lewis information in Reading.

Hi I wood like info on The Atkinson And Whitaker and that came to VA thankyou Lynn Whitaker email@example.com
Here are two photographs of a child's grave; Douglas Atkinson, born 19 April 1933 who died 3 January 1934 it is in the churchyard of St. Peter & St. Paul's Church in Newport Pagnell, Buckinghamshire.
The other Atkinson that I have listed is that of Clifford Atkinson born 1924 and buried at St. Laud's Church, Sherington, Buckinghamshire in 2001. I have no photograph of this as I don't tend to photograph the more modern gravestones as I feel it is an invasion of privacy to the family that would still be living in the area.
For Arnold I have too many to list starting as far back as the Jun 1541, can you give me an idea of an area that you might be interested in - thanks.
I have two burial records for the name Attwell but no photographs I'm afraid, despite having looked for the local one (in Hanslope) I couldn't find the gravestone. But here are the details that I have:
Catherine Attwell died 22 Oct 1890, buried at St. James the Great, Hanslope, Buckinghamshire
Harriet Sophia Attwell died 16 Nov 1856, buried in the City of London Cemetery, London - the details on the register are; Residence: 15 Nicholas Street, Hoxton, Age: 11 months, District in which the Death is registered: Hoxton Old Town, Middlesex, From What Parish Removed: St. Leonard, Situation of Grave: Square 27 number 87, No. of Grant: 165, Description of Interment: 2nd Class Common Interment, Unconsecrated Ground, If Pauper - The Union: Ceremony Performed by: James Woodard, Remarks: Daughter of G.H. Attwell
The photographs below are the only ones I have for your surnames but not in Wiltshire. However I do have burial details for the other surnames in Wiltshire if you contact me directly I will send you an email as there are too many to list on here.
So far I have one gravestone under the name of BAGGS - and he is Samuel Baggs, died 1st August 1877 and is buried in St. Mary & St. Rhadegund Church's graveyard in the little village of Whitwell on the Isle of Wight, Hampshire.
I also have information on 118 other burials for the name BAGGS in different parts of the UK from 1628 to 1825 but without photographs, and possibly more if you want more up-to-date info - let me know whereabouts you're looking and if there are any particular people you are looking for and I will see what I can do.
I also have burial details for the Bonner individuals buried in St. Giles & St. Mary in nearby Stony Stratord but unfortunately I cannot find any tombstones as there are very few graves left there.
William Bonner, aged 80, buried 18 Jul 1813
Ann Bonner, aged 84, buried 29 Jan 1817
Thomas Bonner, aged 14, buried 23 Apr 1819
Benjamin Bonner, aged 15, buried 14 Oct 1825
William Bonner, aged 85, buried 9 Jul 1851.
There are number of BORTON gravestones at St. Laud's Church, Sherington, Buckinghamshire but since these are fairly recent 1940 onwards I have not photographed and won't publish them so as not to offend any family members. Anything before this date is as follows:
Hi Kerrie, thank you so much for your kind comments. I only have one photograph of a BRAILSFORD gravestone, and it is more a monument being fairly big. The photograph is quite dark as it was inside a small copse of trees, unfortunately I wasn't the first to make this journey and a stupid girl called Rachel had vandalised it. I took a photograph as you can see from the first photo below, then entirely disgusted by it I went back with a scrubbing brush and tried to repair the damage, I didn't get it all off but at least you can read the words now.
One of the great things about this gravestone is that there is a LOT of family information on it, linking different surnames all with the one family.

I'd be interested in any Brett graves especially in East Yorkshire.
No photographs for this surname in Yorkshire and only one burial in that area:
Sarah Brett, buried 22 January 1823, infant, buried at St. Oswald, Kirk Sandall, Yorkshire.
For this surname in Coaley, Gloucestershire they have posted all occurrences in the Parish Registers online and free at the link below. Although I have 2 burial records as well, not sure if they are included so just incase they're not;
6 Mar 1823 Samuel Browning, age 58, St. Bartholomew, Coaley, Gloucestershire
2 Jul 1825 Patience Browning, age 18, as above
And sorry but I have nothing for the other three surnames in Gloucestershire at all.
- Coaley Parish Registers
Parish Register details for Coaley, Gloucestershire, UK, of interest to family historians.
Burial Details without photographs:
Eleanor Ann Buck, buried 24 Oct 1927, All Trinity, Old Wolverton, Buckinghamshire, residence at time of death 94 Stratford Road, Wolverton
Elijah Buck, buried 14 Mar 1923, All Trinity, Old Wolverton, residence at time of death Stratford Road, Stony Stratford/Wolverton
Found in the depths of the City of London Cemetery records:
Robert Butt, buried 6 Aug 1856, Residence Dean Street, Fetter Lane, London, age 29 years, District in which the Death is registered Islington West, Middlesex, From What Parish Removed: St.Mary, Islington, Situation of Grave: Square 41 number 21, No. of Grant 38, Description of Interment: 2nd Class Common Interment, Unconsecrated Ground, Ceremony Performed by: James Woodard
And from the list below I would guess that the BUTT family came from Birmingham and it looks like there were two main family lines throughout the 1700s.
24 Jun 1711 - George, buried in St. Martin,Birmingham, Warwickshire
6 Mar 1724 - George, buried in St. Philip, Birmingham, Warwickshire
16 Feb 1731 - Margery, in St. Martin

6 Feb 1820 - John, 5 months, St. Mary Whittal Street, Birmingham, Warwickshire
You are definitely an angel to all geneologists! Do you have any pictures or information on Bush in Bitton? I understand there is a Bush memorial in St Marys churchyard that is listed that i would love to see a picture of. :). Thank you for all you do!!!
Hi Bridget, sorry for the delay, I haven't been over to Bitton, but there are a few things out there on the web that might be of interest to you in the BItton Parish Chronicles there are a couple of the Bush family mentioned:
- Bitton Parish Chronicles 1759 - 1796
News & Events Bitton Parish 1759 - 1796
The above link leads to lots of other pages of the Parish Chronicles which I hope will help, there also seems to be a fair amount of people on Ancestry.co.uk that are interested and have information on the Bush family in Bitton. I will try to see what else I can come up with if there are particular family members that you are trying to find.

George Colton came to America in the 1600's. He was born in Sutton, Coldfield(?), England. Do you have any Colton gravestones in that area of England during or before the 1600's?
Sutton Coldfield is an area of Birmingham which is now in the West Midlands, previously part of Warwickshire. I have two burials for Colton in Birmingham:
26 Feb 1772 Ann Colton, St. Philip, Birmingham, Warwickshire
25 Jan 1781 Elizabeth Colton, as above

David B. Crawford, M.D.
I have a copy of the death register entry for a Maria Parker Crawford who died in hospital in Glasgow, Scotland, and I have burial details for other areas in England, whereabouts were you interested in?
Lots of information on Cropper but really need an area as there's too much to type. One piece I came across recently was in the City of London Cemetery records:
Alice Cropper, buried 2 Oct 1856
Residence: 12 Martin Street, Friars Street, Blackfriars Road
Age: 91 years
District in which the Death is registered: "Boro" Road, Surrey
From What Parish Removed: St. George, Blackfriars

I have one photograph of a Croxen family member in Bedfordshire, I haven't done the whole of this particular churchyard yet it's in Bedfordshire and I've posted it below. Sorry no photos on this surname in Northamptonshire. But I have one burial in Wellingborough:
25 Jul 1813 Hannah Croxen, age 49, All Hallows Church, Northamptonshire
But it seems that there were a lot of Croxens buried in Burton Latimer, Northamptonshire where there is even a street name called Croxen's Yard which obviously points to the Croxens being very important in this area. The Burials I have in Burton Latimer are all for the one church, St. Mary the Virgin and here is the list:
1 Apr 1754 Mary
18 Apr 1755 Elizabeth

What a useful site. I am very interested in the burials of any Dell or Crozier names.Not sure if this is the correct way to ask for details.
Tessa King, South Africa
The Crozier information I have is mostly English in origin but I do have one item which came from New York City newspaper, The Irish-American 1857 Irish Deaths dated February 4th:
Wife of Reverend William Crozier; Anne Crozier, died 4 Feb 1857, County Down, Eire
JGoodier 12 days ago
Dell and Crozier. I noticed Tessa King's enquiry, and I have Dell and Crozier ancestors. Dells were coastguards in Dorset, Hampshire and Kent. Croziers were one of the Roxburgh/Northumberland reiver families, and many were in the Simonburn area of Northumberland, later spreading to the colonies. Any details would be very welcome.
Crozier family buried in St. Mungo, Simonburn, Northumberland:
21 Nov 1742 Eliz
10 May 1748 Jane
28 Dec 1754 Henry
15 Feb 1766 William
15 Mar 1787 Jane
15 Mary 1787 Margaret
Just spotted your page on the Ancestry site, but it has been cancelled, Do you still have information on Davison Burials? I am looking for burials in the Merseyside area.
Hi Dave, I believe that the Merseyside area used to be part of Lancashire and I have 2 burials for that area and the name Davison which I have posted below:
15 March 1808 - Joseph Davison, buried in St. John the Baptist, Hey, Lancashire
19 May 1851 - Hannah Davison, age 69, buried in St. Paul, Royton, Lancashire
Thank you so much for the chance to ask you about the DEACON'S. My sister-in-law was married to a DEACON whose family came from Windhill, Idle, Caverley, England. Was wondering if you have anything on a Benjamin, born abt. 1766 and his wife, Hannah/Sarah, nee Spencer. Children: Benjamin, 1782; Jonas. 1793; Richard, 1807; James, 1808; Joshua, b. 1814; Alfred, b. 1819, dod. July 27, 1892; John, b. 1819; and Abraham, born Nov 10, 1824, dod, May 2, 1895, Chicago, Illinois (USA)
Children were all born in Windhill, Idle, Caverley, England.

Great job! Thank you! I'm a 50+year DUFF researcher. Scotland is my brick wall. They left Scotland for Carrickfergus area of N. Ireland. The line is SAMUEL DUFF, but I cannot find the link that connects him to his family in Scotland - he was born ca. 1700-1720. There were 4 Samuels from two lines, Mine was Samuel Duff who m. Margaret MONTGOMERY ca. 1740 They were in
the colonies by 1750s. Lots of USA info to exchange. Thanks. Bonnie
Hi Bonnie, the only information a Scottish Duff would be that of a baby called Andrew Duff, who was born in January 1891 and died on the 30th of September of the same year. His parents were Andrew Duff and Tabitha Duff who lived at 50 Cavendish Street, Glasgow, Lanarkshire, Scotland. Above you can see the excerpt from the Parish Register.
I see you have Dunkley listed - be very interested to learn more about what you have!
Hi June, here are details and photographs that I have for the surname Dunkley,
Allan Dunkley born Jan 1910, unbaptized, buried 6 Jun 1910, residence at time of death; 21 Anson Road, Wolverton, Buckinghamshire (Source All Trinity Church Burial Records, Old Wolverton)
Benjamin and Helen Amelia Dunkley, buried 1936 in St. Laud's, Sherington, Buckinghamshire, England, Grave location 41a
And one photo as below - unfortunately there has been paint poured over this gravestone and this has happened in a number of graveyards I have visited lately (if I caught anyone doing it I think it would end up over their heads instead of on the headstones).
Re: EMILY FLORENCE DURDIN

MY GRANDFATHER ARTHUR FRANCIS EATON BORN 1880 IN SANDY BEDS. DIED 13TH. DEC. 1964. BURIED IN BEDFORD CEMETERY. NO PHOTO.HIS MOTHER & FATHER I HAVE NO RECORD AT ALL, I BELIEVE THEY WERE FROM THE BIGGLESWADE AREA.
Hi Tony, Arthur Francis Eaton is on the 1881 census with his family, have you not seen the record? If you go to www.ancestry.co.uk and search the census you will find it. I have posted a copy of the census below and here below is a link to the correct records:
Clicking on each family member in turn will bring up details about them, his father William was born in Scaldwell, Northamptonshire, and his mother Sarah was born in Birdingbury, Warwickshire.
When you view the register if you look on the bottom right hand side of the screen it gives you a relevant death and birth record. On their you can see that his parents William and Sarah both died in Grantham, Lincolnshire. I hope this helps, I'm afraid I haven't been up to Lincolnshire so have no photos for you. Let me know how you get on and I will help if I can.
ECCLESTON (in Liverpool)
Bob Doris 4 weeks ago
My grandparents came from Birmingham England in a ship that both steam and sail . The family name is Eccleston and thought to be from Liverpool originally. Any info would nice
Hi Bob, Liverpool was originally part of the county of Lancashire, although now in allocated to that of Merseyside. I have 3 burials in the late 1700s for ECCLESTON, in Lancashire, but not Liverpool;
12 Aug 1788 John, buried Holy Trinity, Shaw
1 Mar 1789 Nancy, buried Christ Church, Over Wyresdale
6 Apr 1795 (no Christian name), Christ Church, Over Wyresdale.
Not sure if you've tried it or not yet but the Ellis Island records would surely have information if they came over from England (a lot of ships came out of Liverpool to the USA), their search facility is really good and you should always look at the image of the original ship's manifesto it has a lot more information and sometimes contains a description of the passenger and where they were going to and who they were travelling with and going to visit or stay with.

Hello Eileen! You are an angel with a beautiful heart to help strangers with their genealogical search. Maybe you can help me. When I was a teenager my grandmother, Ethel Sinkler (Shelton, daughter of William Sinkler and Julia Gailliard) who was born in Summerville, South Carolina told me that her grandmother,(possibly her mother's mother), Florence Farr came from England. I don't know where in England. I see in your list of names that Farr is included. I greatly appreciate ANY information you have to share. Thank you very very much!!
Hi Jen, your words mean so much to me, here is the information I have:
Florence Mary Farr buried 1 Jan 1894, age 18 months, St. Martin, Oweston, Lincolnshire, this is the only Florence Farr that I have details of, hope that there may be a connection for you. If you get some idea of an definite area let me know and I'll see what else I can dig up for you (no pun intended).

Thanks for all the hard work, Eileen. I am interested in the surnames Fuller and Parrott, which are both in your list. "Somewhere in England" is the only location I can offer. If the entries you have are not too numerous I would love to see what you have. Thanks again.
I only have one occurrence of a FULLER locally but when I visited the church was closed and apparently his memorial is on a board inside the church, he was:
Edward Fuller who died in 1705, and the church is St. Laud's Church, Sherington, Buckinghamshire.
FULLER is a very popular name, if you could contact me by email directly through HubPages I will see if we can find some more info for you.
Coincidentally the Parrott information is for the same church, please see the information listed under Surnames I-R.
