East Brent Burial register 1813 - 1914
published by dagb on Sat, 24/11/2018 - 12:53

I have noted several burials with the text Buried  According to Burials Amendment Act 1880 in the column provided in the register headed By whom the ceremony was performed.  The entries I have seen are in the burial register for East Brent 1813 - 1914. I am wondering if these burials are for those who were of Methodist congregation, which seemed to be well established there, and the service carried out by a Methodist Minister and not the incumbant clergy for the church? Does anyone have knowledge or experience for the reason of this type of recording.

Weston Bar in about 1957
published by Pat Hase on Wed, 07/11/2018 - 17:49

Not really Family History but I have received this query about a Bar in Weston - possibly called Rockside Bar.   Can anyone help?

"When visiting Weston-super-Mare in about 1957 there was a bar selling Watneys Red Barrel, it had one wall that was a stone wall with plants and water present. I think it may have been part of the Royal Pier Hotel.   It was entered from the promenade at sea level.  I have been trying to find out about it for a while.   Rockside Bar seems to stick in my memory,   please can you help."

Obviously this bar played a part in the memories of the enquirer - does anyone recognise the bar?

Yatton Hall and Sandhill Park
published by ETJ21 on Mon, 05/11/2018 - 22:32
I wondered if anyone could help with a query about Institution records.

I have recently established that three cousins x1 removed, male siblings aged 9, 13 and 16 years, were all residents in Yatton Hall at the time of the 1939 register
They had two sisters, one of whom was resident in Sandhill Park in 1939, she was also 9 years (twin sister of one of the boys)

Are there any surviving records from either institution that anyone knows of?

I am curious to establish why four of the children were in an institution
Their mother and father were alive - they had separated and were living at different addresses

Rice Family
published by Bram Nash on Mon, 05/11/2018 - 14:58
My maternal ancestry is traced back as far as Henry Rice (1748 - 1825) who married Diana/Dinah Ford at St George's Church, Easton in Gordano, on 15th March 1784. As yet I have been unable to go back further than Henry.
Hopefully there are a few more descendents within the Rice family able to help.

Records for family on Grove Park war memorial
published by Sharon on Sun, 04/11/2018 - 19:35
I wondered if anyone could help. I have two great uncles named on the Grove Park war memorial (Alec Baker and Leonard Baker), and I wondered how I could find out more about them, how/when they died etc. My nan would never talk about it (they were her brothers), so nothing is really known about them. Thanks in advance for any help!

Harriet Jarvis
published by Les Martels on Sun, 30/09/2018 - 15:12

Can anyone find me the burial date for Harriet Jarvis who died the 4th quarter of 1873 please.

She lived in South Brent (Brent Knoll) at the time of  her death.

Hopefully, the South Brent registers will  be updated to 1918 soon as I have quite a few bmd's to fulfil.  (If you need help, very happy to do so)
