    Had a look on CityArk for Arthur John's burial. The number 356 has been added in the left margin, so I think you are correct @Archie's Mum. Not all of the entries have what looks like a grave number - maybe they have just been added to the ones that have been re-opened. The address is very similar to that in the 1939 Register also.

    So do you think Arthur William could be in a reopened grave?

    He could be, but I don't think it is with Arthur John and Dorothy Mabel. There is a number in the left hand margin, but it is E2. Just scrolling through to see if I can find another with E2 in the margin - may be gone a while.

    Nope, couldn't find any other entries with E2 either in the margin or within the text, where some useful bits are entered, i.e. cremated remains of xxx or see entry no. xxx etc. It may be though, that I either missed it, or it was opened up after the date the records go up to - Jan 1992. I couldn't see any later records.

    Sadly I came across a couple of entries that I'm sure relate to the 2 year old son of a chap I knew from work in the late 70's. I'm sure it is him as the surname is correct and it mentions the little lad dying after an accident at home, which I know is what occurred :(

    I don't think so. Found a layout plan of the cemetery which is split into letters, so probably an area and row number. Other entries have a letter and number in the margin. Wonder if I could go and have a look - hmm will have to see about the petrol situation - 20 minutes on the motorway.

    Of course. Silly me. Walked enough cemeteries to know that. :rolleyes:
    While you are there, ask her a few questions. We would like to know more.

    Please don't! It is not that important and it is best to save for emergencies.

    However, thank you for your kind offer. ():-)
