I am trying to find the burial of Mary JENNINGS, who died in March 1973.
She was born at Askham, lived at Retford and died at Newark.
As she was not buried at Retford or Newark, nor is there a mention of burial in her Will, could she be buried near her parents, ROLLINSON, at Askham?
Hello All (Again)
I forgot to mention that I have also
acquired all the Mellows Wills from the Principal Probate Registry from 1858
to about 2000.
At that time they only cost about ten pence
I have Mellors/Mellor/Mellows/Meller in my family, all from Nottingham.

Subject: [NTT] Mellows Research
I've been researching my Mellows ancestry for decades, which has taken me back to Notts in the early 1700s and, subsequently, around the world.
My research evolved into a loose one-name study of the surname, as a result of which I have compiled many 'other' Mellows family trees and acquired hundreds and hundreds of birth, marriage and death certificates of events occurring in Notts, Derbys, Warks, Staffs, Lancs, London and Australia, to name but a few, along the way.
I am in the process of winding down my research and, while I intend keeping all my personal Mellows documentation, I intend donating somewhere in the region of a thousand Mellows BMD certificates to the Society of Genealogists.
If you've got the Mellows surname in your tree, please contact me a.s.a.p. before I take a trip to London as I may be able to help you with your research.

Could anyone suggest to me where my great great grandparents may be buried?
Elizabeth (Ashwell) CLARKE died 14 Dec 1881 and she lived at 49 Goldsmith
Street. Robert CLARKE died 15 Dec 1884 - and may have been living at the
They married at St Peter's church Nottingham in 1818 - Elizabeth's father
was John ASHWELL - but they spent most of their married life in Wisbech,
Cambridgeshire. Tragically five of their nine children died in relatively
early adulthood and two died soon after birth. They moved back to
Elizabeth's home town of Nottingham between 1861 and 1871.
Also, where could I find Robert's will? I am sure he must have had one - he
got his start in life from his wealthy grandfather who seems to have brought
Taking a leaf from Nivard’s book…I thought I too would post who I’m researching/where I am.
I’m researching Clark(e) in the Basford area of Nottingham - I’ve gone back to the early 1800’s fairly completely, however, I’m also looking to solve my 25 year old brick wall - the one which started my research all those years ago:
My g-g-grandmother was Ada Clarke (nee Ginnever) she was born in Snenton in 1864 and married my g-g-grandfather John Thomas Clarke in 1884 in Basford.
On Ada’s birth certificate her mother is shown as Sarah Ginnever formerly Buttery and her father as George Ginnever (Whitesmith).
On Ada’s marriage cert her father is shown a Frank Ginnever (Grocer).
On the 1871 census Ada Giniver is a Scholar as a visitor in the house of George Hancock (I’ve researched the family that she’s visiting but that’s not led me anywhere) 10 Northumberland St. I cannot find any Ginnever/Ginniver family in the 1871 census that would fit but I do have a Sarah Buttery (Widow) lodging at 2 York Street with an Eliza Asher (Head). I can find no record of a marriage between Sarah Buttery and George/Frank Ginnever. I can find no record of the family (Buttery or Ginnever) in the 1881 census. I’m thinking that Sarah and George/Frank were never married. However, it’s also interesting that Ada’s husband was a grocer on the 1891 census - so maybe there’s a link there between father and son-in-law??
I’ll keep plugging on…but if anyone has any suggestions, I’d be happy to hear them.

As we are up and running again I thought I would post my main line of
interest in Notts
My great grandfather was Edwin Frederick YOELL b1848 in Streatham Surrey
He trained as a jeweller & watchmaker, I suspect with one of the family
in London but have never found apprentice papers etc
He moved to Spalding in Lincolnshire to further learn his trade with a
jeweller there, it is also where he met my great grandmother Charlotte
ROSE b1849 Spalding
After marrying in Spalding they moved to East Retford where he set up
his own business of Yoells the Jewellers at 10 to 12 Carolgate
Which is where my grandfather Thomas George YOELL was born in 1879
Sadly he died in the first war in the Spanish flu pandemic
Any mention of YOELL gratefully received no matter where, most are
connected to my line
