APPEAL: Searching for grave records

editorial image

Can anyone help us please? Does anyone know the whereabouts of the burial plot records for Ellingham churchyard, which we have been unable to trace up to date?

We are trying to trace our grandfather’s grave. He was called James Robinson, born December 31, 1891, at Lee Moor, Rennington. He died on July 24, 192, at Preston Mains, Chathill, and is buried in Ellingham churchyard.

He died at a very young age through injuries suffered in the First World War, during which he served in the Northumberland Fusiliers from 1914, and Northumberland Royal Engineers, Sappers.

We would like to erect a headstone in his memory to acknowledge what he went through, if we could only locate the exact plot.

Any information would be greatly received.

Eileen Robinson,
