Searching for Lambournes

Using the Local Burials section on the Bristol & Avon Family History Society website I found the monumental inscriptions for Shirehampton Cemetery.

Normally I would search for Rogers, but as Shirehampton is on the wrong side of Bristol I decided to search for Lambourne instead.

I found two hits, one for Frederick Walter, and one for George Henry, both in the same grave. Other information included said that George Henry was 8 and was Frederick Walter’s brother, and that Frederick Walter had a wife, Eliza Ann.

This was a gold mine, I knew that Frederick Walter Lambourne married Eliza Ann and they had a son called George Henry.

So I decided to take a trip down to the cemetery to search for the grave.

Eventually after about 45 minutes of looking I found the grave on the opposite side to where I had originally started searching.

It didn’t have a headstone, instead it had just the edging to it and the inscription around the outside.
