    Hello,

    Looking for the burial of Charles King Salter, was living in Holt in 1939, and died in the same area in 1954. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,

    Adam

    Hi Adam,

    I could call into Worcester Archives and have a look for you next time I'm in Worcester although not sure exactly when!

    Do you know the exact date of death?

    Karen

    Thanks for that Karen! I'd appreciate that greatly.

    And thanks Chimp, you replied before I could! I've been watching the football and I'd have had to have checked the quarter myself.

    You're welcome - seems like he was buried at Shrawley.

    (I watched some of the match, too many drama queens for my liking :rolleyes:, put em on a rugby pitch :D I have France in the sweep at work :) )

    Is there no date attached to the inscription? And yes, I do agree. It was thrilling in the last 20 or so minutes when Belgium were really going for that equaliser. Shame they didn't get it. Looking forward to the match tomorrow anyway.

    No problem. I've contacted the parish church and hopefully I'll hear back from them.
