for members replying to posts made by josietrue she sadly passed away in 2016....just a little reminder to all members that if you see the words "gone but not forgotten" underneath members avatar names it does denote that that member has passed away...its just our little way of honouring them

Does anyone know (or can confirm) whether a burial record for December 1853 Warstone Lane would definitely give the age and address of the deceased.

I have found a burial for someone I believe to be an ancestor at Warstone Lane. I have his death Certificate - died 21st December 1853 and already have the following information:

David Martin - Warstone Lane
Section C - Burial No. 2443 - Grave 293 (Public Grave).

I have been advised that because different registrars completed the burial register - some entries may have that information and some may not.

I am quite happy to pay for the burial record if this contains the information I am seeking - but if it doesn't then I am no further forward and cannot confirm (or rule out) any connection.

William.

Walked along Vyse Street in the Jewellery Quarter yesterday, and the railings have been repainted red. The stonework looks new.

That is one the former entrnces now sealed off - stonework is all new as is the stonework along the wall where the railing are fitted (top bit only bottom original)

It should have the age that was given by the informant - sometimes guessed wrong. Address is usually the address they died at - sometime Hospital or Workhouse, quite often just a street name
It should also have the name of the person who bought the grave - usually next of kin

Thank you Brian for responding.

I was told that "it should have" but "may not" - so would need to purchase a copy.

However if those details are not recorded, I still will not know.

So between a rock and a hard place.

Using the search facility for the Forum and this thread there doesn’t seem to be a mention of Warrulan, an “Aboriginal Australian who was laid to rest in an unmarked grave in Warstone Lane Cemetery. Born in Moorundie in South Australia, Warrulan was the son of Tenbury, who was a tribal elder and a guide for British colonial administrator Edward John Eyre. Eyre brought Warrulan to England in 1844 as an adolescent, where he was educated at agricultural school before undertaking an apprenticeship with a saddle maker. Warrulan then worked for Middlemore Saddles in Birmingham but died of pneumonia aged about 19 years. The team is contributing a biography of Warrulan which will be displayed on a new interpretation panel, (at the restored Chamberlain clock) due to be installed in 2021.”

Warrulan is part of The Friends of Key Hill Cemetery & Warstone Lane Cemetery Tours conducted the second Sunday in the month except for December . The Friends researched Warrulan several years ago .
