A great site. It's helped me get a little more info on my Burton roots. I'm glad I found it.
It has been interesting reading all the bits of information about the village & people.

I am interested to know why the family graves are not listed and illustrated in this resource.

Thanks for that it is my grandad. I had been on the 1911 census and found him I cannot seem to get any more imformation who his mother was; it all seems to come to an end with his uncle.

For Betty Baker, writing on 09 Feb 2009.
The 1911 Census (details available at findmypast.co.uk) records an Alfred James Tyler Reed living or staying at the Porter's Lodge, Lowesby (Station, presumably) on April 2nd that year.
He was then 9 years old, and was recorded as having been born in Twyford. He was living or staying with his uncle, Willie Fardell Reed, and Willie's wife and four children. This looks to be your Alfred Reed.
The free BMD website records that Alfred married Mabel Goodman in the Billesdon Registration district in the quarter ending Sept. 1925.

I am the great grandaughter of Daniel and Margaret Coleman (photos of gravestone shown on your site).
I remember visitng them at what I believe was called Blacksmith Cottage, their home in the village and also that Daniel was a keen follower of the local hunt.
Some fabulous information and overall a great site well done.
