BURNGREAVE CEMETERY (opened 1859)

NO Sylvesters in the index

#19849 Ann Holland wf of Charles ae 48 died at 129 Button Lane but 8 Mar 1874

Q3 19 Maria Nicholson      ae 71 bur 18 Jan 1863  paid 4/6
William Nicholson       66     20 Mar 1863       4/6
Ellen Holland           16     25 Dec 1872      10/-
Ann Holland             48      8 Mar 1874      13/4
Charles Holland         48      5 Apr 187?      13/4

Plot Q3 #19 is a marginal plot - between the main rows of the cemetery.  There
are no markers, Q3 not even being on the superintendent's map and not on any
of the plot markers.  It is probably along the south wall, just south of where
the road comes up, 1/4 - 1/3 of the way from the east side of the cemetery.
The superintendent was most helpful, and even gave me a ride back into town
when I was finished. (May 1984)
