how do I find a cemetery

Ron Rogers

master brummie
I am trying to locate the cemetery where my Great aunt may have been buried.
Ada Rogers died on the 26th of December 1936 at The Infirmary Western Road House Birmingham
Her last known address was 99 Stanhope Street Highgate Birmingham

Thanks
Ron

hi ron i was hoping she was at either warstone lane or key hill as that is the closest to where ada died but i cant find her there...there is however a john rogers buried at warstone lane in 1936 but of course may not be one of your rellies..here is the link to search burials for both cemeteries so you may want to double check..my next best bets would be witton or yardley...other members maybe able to help with those if not it would mean you would have to contact them

hi again ron...looks like ada is at yardley...if as you say she died on 26th of dec it must have been a very quickly arranged funeral as the one i have found say burial/cremation dec 1936 but it does seem likely it is her...click on below link

ron if you want a copy of the death cert you will need to get one from either birmingham register office or the GRO for which you can order one online link below for that

There seem to be death registrations for two Ada Rogers in Birmingham. One born abt 1867 and death registered last quarter of 1936 and another born abt 1872 registered in first quarter 1937.
WIth a death on 26th December I would think the second is more likely in which case Yardley may not be the right person.
Did you have a date of birth for your Great aunt?
Also most online records are Church of England or relate to council cemeteries/crematoria - if she was of a different religion it might be more difficult.
