Hi I am a new member and wondered if anyone can help me?

I am trying to locate my Stepfathers first wife who we think may be buried in Tinsley Park Cemetary.

Her name was Brenda Butler (nee Wilson)

She may be buried with her father James (Jim) Wilson

We dont think that there is a headstone

We think we was in her early twenties when she died of TB in late 50`s to early 60`s

Any help would be appreciated

Thanks Phil Hutton

Hello Phil

Welcome to the Forum. Here are the burial records for Brenda and Jim

BUTLER    Brenda    25    Jan    1963    26    housewife    53 Nethershire Ln/Winter St Ho    Sheffield    OC171c

WILSON    James    11    Mar    1960    43    steel moulder    53 Nethershire Lane / Winter S    Sheffield    OC171c

If you go to the Sheffield Indexers site there is a map of the Cemetery


Section OC looks to be towards the bottom of the Cemetery

Many thanks Ceegee fantastic response

Do you know if the Cemetary is open?

If so will there be anyone to ask about Brenda?

Happy New Year to you and thanks again

I'd suggest going to City Road Cemetery office first and finding out the exact location of the grave. If there is no stone, then they can also tell you "It's the space next to John Smith." You might also ask at the office if there are any burials taking place when you want to go, if you know when you're going.

The Tinsley Park Cemetery is open most days (We've gone past Christmas so don't worry about that)
