    Hello,

    This is the only burial eluding me, barring two still held at a church (have seen the headstone). Ellen Boulton died in Carlton near Rothwell on the 19th of February 1936. Her husband Joseph was buried in Lofthouse in 1904, having died in Rothwell Haigh. Could anyone please take a look to see if they can find her?

    I’d appreciate any help!

    Adam

    Have you considered that she may have been cremated? The closest place would be Cottingley Hall crematorium, less than 10 miles away.

    Perhaps a funeral notice in a local newspaper might give a clue.

    Cottingley Hall Crematorium didn't open until 1938, so she won't be there.

    Whereabouts in Lofthouse was her husband buried? It's possible that she was buried with him but the later records aren't online.

    I've run her name through the database at Yorkshire Indexers and not come up with anything, but that again might be a coverage issue. Jan's suggestion of a funeral notice might be the way to go.

    I found a death registration for her [i think] for Wakefield. I can't seem to find what cemeteries are there. She isn't at Lofthouse. Mind you I can't find Joseph there either. Could she have been with family elsewhere when she died? :headbang::)
