We had decided to return to Chard and search the cemetery which we'd found while online yesterday so while Mike went to the Library where burial records are held, I went to the Guest House to try and find out what had happened to the others. It appeared that Roger had suffered a DVT on the long haul flight and he had a small clot on his lung. He had been admitted and would be spending at least two nights in hospital and Margaret was having a scan on her leg as it was swollen and they wanted to make sure that she didn't have a similar problem. Poor things. Not a good start to their holiday in the UK.
In the meantime Mike was very excited because he'd found a burial record for Walter Johnson (his 2nd great grandfather) who died in 1890 and Ann Amelia Hoare (Walter's wife) who died in 1922.
We had a grave number and directions to find the plot - at last - some success! We drove round to the cemetery carpark and entered the gates. It was huge! We'd been told it was in Section A but there are no markers anywhere so we hadn't a clue where Section A could be. We eventually found a very helpful man who told us where to look but we still couldn't find it. He re-appeared with a chart and found the spot for us - Grave 173 was un-marked! Mike picked some leaves and laid them on the grass so we could take a photo for our records.
It is such a shame when there is no headstone but at least we now know where they are resting.
