Hi, back to the experts. I seem to have some info on my late grandfather Harold G Davis. A burial at Brandwood End Cemetery.Brandwood End for Harold 4th January 1930. Can anyone confirm this, was he buried. He died new yrs eve tragically 1929 at Minworth. Been looking for along time. Thanks if you can help once again.

Thanks to your wonderful site. I have found that my grandfather was buried at Brandwood End. Also my grandmother Elizabeth Davis(Conway). How do I find where the graves are. Or are there any Monumental Inscriptions? I'm amazed that I've found this out after yrs. Just stuck now at Monumental Inscriptions, if any? Thank you, great site.

Hi MWS hope you are doing OK. I have found that, yes expensive. Again like you say it might not give me what I'm after. He might have been a pauper/union. Hoping with such a tragic death he had a decent send off. Once lockdown is over can get over to Brandwood. Again trying to find a needle in a haystack. Don't suppose contacting Brandwood would work.
Thanks once again for your help. I didn't realise that site was there. The council obviously cashing in and not guaranteed a grave or monument. Thank you.

Hi Lyn, good news on The Harold Davis side. In touch with someone on ancestry who has connections. She shares my gt grandmother Elizabeth Davis who was Harold's mom. She remarried after my gt gt grandfather died Alfred. So became a Conway, had 4 more children. Harold lived with his half bros and sisters. Her mom was one of the 4, youngest and was 97 died 2013. So remarkably can share info now.
I have finally found out what happened to Alfred. Through you, knew he was at Yardley. Had 2 reports when I contacted them a few yrs ago. So used your link paid ouch £20. To get a copy of where he was. Another phone call just to confirm he was a commoner and in the remembrance garden. Really shocked at that, but there you go, settled. The person I'm in touch with has a photo of my gt nan. Plus details where Harold is at Brandwood. Also his mom is there 1940. So thank you all. Moved on Alot.
