I'm looking for a burial/death record for a woman that I only have her married name for. I also can't find a birth or marriage record.

Her name is Hannah Evans, born in Leominster, Herefordshire, England.

I found her husband's baptism/birth date, but not her burial/death, marriage or baptism/birth dates and have been searching relentlessly.

  • What is her husband's name, and baptism date and place? When and where were their children born/baptized? Is there a census record (or something else) that informed you that she was born at Leominster? Presumably it would also have given an approximate year?

  • Have you tried looking at her gravestone? That might have her maiden name, birthdate and death date on it. Good luck in your search!
