Hi Roz ,
No luck with the look up , however talking to the staff , they seem to be of the opinion that it might well be a cemetary in Sandwell , whose border is quite close to Highfield road , so tomorrow i will check with them , it they are not open i will do it Monday .

Sorry Roz

I meant Heathfield Road , it is a 15 minute drive to the nearest cemetary which is in Sandwell

Hello Roz,


I have read that someone at St. Chads RC Cathedral has access to archives.  Might I suggest you contact either the Cathedral Dean or Cathedral Secretary who may be able to advise or point you in the correct direction.
The details of phone and e-mail are listed under 'who's who?' on the cathedral web site.

regards, Alan
best wishes,  Alan

Hi Roz ,
Ive already contacted St Chads , and was told that either an onsite  researcher can be paid to carry out the work , or i can make an appointment and go  and look myself . Tomorrrow i am going to the Sandwell records offices , to do  a search there , if no luck i will make an appointment with St Chads and try there .
