If they were buried in London Road Cemetery I should be able to help you. I have a CD which contains all the burial records from 1847 to 1937. One useful feature is that the database shows all the same people who are buried in one particular plot. This helps to find other family members. Please email me(via this site) if you think I can be of help.

I have a serious worry. Last year my cousin and I had a gravestone put in the London RD cemetery for the previously unmarked grave of our grandparents and great grandmother. I learned from the stonemason that he has stored possibly hundreds of stones that were removed for subsequent burials, and where no provision had been made to re-erect them. Nowadays he charges a storage fee which no doubt encourages someone to have the stones put back. He thought other stonemasons had the same problem. Surely this accounts for some of the large gaps in the cemetery, and what a tragedy that perhaps later decendants are unaware of the stones being missing. Is there some group that at least could record the inscriptions of these stones that are in storage?

No Joy, I'm afraid. I can find only five people with the name of Hensman buried in London Road up to 1937, and none of them is Irene. The five that are buried there are:- Arthur aged 33 , died 1914 Edwin John aged 17, died 1929 George Aubrey, aged 10 months, died 1905 George Frederic , aged 68, died 1925 Loris John, aged 44, died 1928 Sorry I can't be of more help.

Hi MaryMc, If Irene Mary Hensman was intered into one of the four council cemeteries I may be able to help you, though it will take a couple of days. If she was intered in a Churchyard then it may be a little more difficult as some church records were not as acurate as the council's. Also it would be helpful to know the Parish in which she was born as it will help to identify the churchyard in which she may be.

Here we go. Irene Mary Hensman Born 15th Feb 1924 at 8 Stanley St (now St Elizabeths St, near St Elizabeths R.C Church) Died 15th April 1924 at 8 Stanley St. Daughter of George and Hilda Hensman George and Hilda moved to Coventry circa 1908, from Ampthill, Bedfordshire. When living in Coventry, (in later years anyway) they appeared to attend a Church of England Church. In Bedfordshire, it seems they were Methodist. I was told by another family member that Irene was baptised at St Pauls, Foleshill, but as far as I have been able to ascertain, there is no burial record for her there. I'm not 100% sure on that though. I'll leave it with you Thumbs up Edit to say: George and Hilda are buried in Windmill Rd Cemetery, but I've been unable to find Irene there.
