An ancestor of mine, Robert Ward, died late April 1875. He was a farmer, and had been born c 1812 in Ebberston. Laterly he had been living in Melton Mowbray district. I am really anxious to try to find where he is buried, his wife Elizabeth nee Faulkner may be with him. I believe he was c of e. If anyone can help, would be most grateful. Thank you for reading this.

The church is dedicated to St James.
It is now part of the Melton Mowbray team ministry based at St Mary's MM.
Will try to visit in the next few days and report back accordingly.

Hello John B.
Just reading your reply to Louise. My Gt Gt Grandad was Robert Ward Born Ebberston 1811. Moved to Staffs & Leics. I Have not been to where he was buried but will do in the near future. I emailed Louise to see how she is related to me but have had no repley..I have no record of her in our family tree! Was wondering if you have any more info re the family I have got back to 1745 re my family the Wards. thanks Gill Williamson (nee Ward)
