I am trying to find the burial place for Ggrandparents William and Isabella (Bella) Cox.
Last known address (1911 CENSUS) was 14 Evelyn Street, Abertillery
William died about 1923-1930.  He was a coal miner but may have been a reserve police constable.  Isabella died 1939.  Both Registration districts recorded as Bedwellty.  Since I am Canadian I am not familiar with the districts.  Any information would be invaluable.  Thanks

Hi Yvonne
I need a bit more info to trace your Grandad!!!  Place of birth  approx date of marriage and Bella`s surname
Found a few death`s  any idea of his age ? If they were both buried in Bedwelty I would think they are buried in Brynithel Cemetry or if members of a Church in that graveyard, Another possibility if they came to Abertillery to work in the Mines they could have been returned there by remaining Family

Thanks for your response.
Information is as follows
William Cox b. 1862/3 in Radstock Somerset Father George, Mother Louisa.
Isabella Ilderton b.1868 Hetton-le-Hole Durham Father John, Mother Mary
married in 1882 in DuBois Pennsylvania and returned to the UK about 1885/6 and went to live in Wales.
1911 census shows the following children, Ada 21, Burt 17, William jr 15,  Amos 12, Lily 10, Louis 9, Blanch 7,Ivor 5, Olive 3.  all were born in Abertillery
I don't know if they were church members.  Is there only the one cemetery?  
thanks Yvonne

I am very grateful to you for going to all this trouble.  I actually have this info and now just need to know where Isabella is buried.  I think it may be in Blaenau Gwent Cemetery.  Have the details of Williams burial now and it states that only men went to the funeral - not even his wife.  Is this a Welsh tradition?

hi Yvonne,
    Yes it was the Welsh Tradition that men went to the Cemetery
often literally walking with the Hearse. Women stayed at home and waited for their return from the Cemetery with food and drinks--not quite like the Irish Wakes with the Corpse in the corner!!! Once there were women attached to the clergy and female lay preachers  it paved the way for the younger female generation to attend the Burial
Services.!!!
My sister is Buried in Blaeneau Gwent Cemetery down in the corner
near Alma Street this was 1936 and she was 10 days old. It  got very boggy over the Years I did go to aFuneral Service in the Church in April
but the funeral was at brynithel Cemetery so didn`t venture down  there
I know there was someone else on here asking about graves but can`t remember who it was maybe someone else will remember

Hi,

i've just discovered this, some years after it was posted.
i am also a great granddaughter or William & Isabella Cox, and have lots of family information. Would be great to get in touch with Yvonne and discover which of the 10 Cox children was her grandparent.

Carole.
