Hi my mum has been talking a lot recently of her beloved grandad and is saddened by the fact she has no details of his death, where he is buried.
I like mooching around freebmd etc but it wont help with such recent history.
So if someone out there would like to mooch for me, I would be very grateful.
Now the facts.
My great grandfather, Reginald Francis Bourne was married at the age of 22 to Beatrice Louisa Kite in Birmingham 1911.
He died around 1967/68 while visiting relatives in Dorset.
Was he buried there or in Birmingham where he lived?
Can anyone help please?
Debbie

Hi Debbie,

Do you know where he was born.

Is this his birth. Reginald Francis Bourne 1889. Apr/May/June. Aston, Warwickshire. Vol 6d - Page 391

I'm assuming Birmingham.
His dads marriage (Robert Bourne) took place in 1877 and gives his residence as Birmingham.
Though Roberts dad, also called Robert was born in Stourbridge.
Does this help?
