So Alice def born abt 1885.
and groom John Hunt (widower) born abt 1882, father Edwin(a miller) and maybe mother or sister Lilian.

Searching the PRs for Alice Elizabeth Ann Hunt's burial gives this possible ?;

Record_ID: 50093
Entry_Number: 486

Month: Oct
Day: 1
Surname: HUNT
Forenames: Elizabeth Alice

So again confirms Alice born abt 1883.

FreeBMD confirms it's our Alice;

Surname First name(s) District Vol Page

Hunt Alice E A 57 Chepstow 11a 22

Sadly she lost her husband several years earlier, I wonder why so young ?
This site doesn't have an Inquest for him. Neither can my admittedly short search find any mention of his death in the BNA old newspapers site.

So suggests John was actually older than he claimed in his marriage day, born abt 1876.

No matches in the FoD PRs.



So Alice is buried in Chepstow Cemetery, Plot A, grave 127. I think this is the same cemetery but not certain.

The Cemetery Service is managed by the Cemeteries Officer, tel 01873 735852,


For completeness perhaps someone could please lookup Alice & John in the 1939 Register, thanks.
