Bathwick Cemeteries

by Chris_Au

Although this sounds a bit macabre we will be in Bath later this year, visting from Wetern Australia. I understand my husband's ancestor died in BATH and was buried Bathwick Cemetery about 1838. We'd like to visit his grave, any ideas as to what the most likely cemetery would be?

RE: Bathwick Cemeteries

by aaaarrgh

Well, curiosity got the better of me and I had a look on the UK Genealogy website www.genuki.co.uk

http://www.genuki.org.uk/big/eng/SOM/Bathwick/Gaz1868.html

Apparently the cemetery called Bathwick Cemetery in Bath was only opened in 1856. 1838 would be very early for a cemetery, they were normally opened when the population exploded mid to late C19th and the local churchyard was full.

Maybe you need the parish church, which was around in 1838.

Thanks Sean - sounds like it might also be worthwhile checking the Church Register beforehand.

Travel Tips for Bath

Sights Along The Avon River...

by coceng

Here's another photo of The Bath Abbey, taken from the river Avon.
The Bath Abbey is one of the top attractions in Bath, the other one could be The Roman Bath, which I didn't go in because I didn't have the time !

mmmm.........clothes!

by Stellco

Something you can haul on and off the train! The weather is unpredictable, as in all of Europe! Bring waterproofs and Flipflops! You can get EVERYTHING and more, in the city. Worth having a zoom, as some archittural stuff is hard to get at, eg top of the Abby! Not really needed, theres only one campsite in Bath, and I don't know where it is! And I LOVE camping! Smartish clothes. If you want to go out for a nice drink in Bath its worth bringing something vaguely respectable. Trainers are fine in most places. If you want to get back to proper British pubbing, you will need a pair of runners, some baggy joggers and a t shirt (with ample room for beer gut extension!)

Walking in Bath

by toonsarah

By far the best way to get around the centre of Bath is to walk. It’s a compact city, and with historical buildings on every street and a large number of interesting one-off shops you’ll find something interesting to look at wherever you go. There are plenty of sign to direct you, and most hotels have free maps of the city available, as does the Tourist Information Centre in Abbey Churchyard. Take comfortable shoes though – cobbles, wonky paving stones and the many hills mean that you won’t get too far in stilettos!

If however you have too little time to walk everywhere you want, or if walking is difficult for you, you could take a tour on the “Hop On – Hop Off” sightseeing bus. As in many other cities, these loop past all the main sights and your 24 hour ticket allows you to get off the bus and on again wherever and as many times as you wish. Your bus ticket also entitles you to discounts (usually 10%) at many of the city’s attractions. Prices range from £6.00 for a child to £11.00 for adults, with family tickets available for £25.00.

Just Past the Pulteney Bridge

by yooperprof about Number 5 Bistro

Great atmosphere in the historic centre of Bath. Number 5 Bistro is just off Pulteney Bridge, one of Bath's most interesting places. Pulteney Bridge is an 18th century homage to the Ponte Vecchio of Florence - it is the only bridge surviving in Britain that still has shops and restaurants on it. Number 5 Bistro features tasty informal French cuisine in a charming atmosphere. Some of the tables overlook the Avon River - try to book one in advance.
