  1. I have no idea as to whether this mail will get a response. My name is Jacqueline Gill. My Mother and her twin brother were born in Glossop 18th April 1917, and emigrated with their parents, Herbert and Alice Ann Dyson to New Zealand in 1927. My Grandmother’s Maiden name was Bray, Large Family, 13 children. parent’s names Thomas and Margaret Bray. He was the manager of a section in the cotton Mill. My Grand Father, Herbert, { Bert } had a cobbler’s business in Victoria Street Glossop and they lived above the shop. I would like to know how I can find out WHERE Thomas and Margaret are buried and IF, by any chance there are any family members still associated with the area. Sadly my Mum has passed away but she spoke of her childhood there for the first 10 years of her life with great love and fondness. My contact details are : jacquirg@xtra.co.nz or J.Gill 105 Rimu St.Maeroa, Hamilton, 3200 New Zealand. Thank you for your time. Jacqueline.

    • Hi Jacqueline,
      It is probable that Thomas and Mary were buried in Glossop. We can search the burial registers for the churchyard and the civil cemetery under the terms of our research service. The charge is £10.50 per 30 minutes, it should take no more than one hour to search through these registers, and may take less. You can download an order form from our website at http://www.derbyshire.gov.uk/recordoffice, under ‘Our Services – Research Service’. You will need to print the form to fully complete it, and we do advise against sending the form electronically.
      I hope this is of assistance, please let us know if you would like any further information.
