Hello again, Does anyone know if there is a list of monumental inscriptions for Broseley, please?  I feel sure there must be a gravestone for William PODMORE SHAW, who died there in 1867, and I am wondering if he is buried with his parents, William and Sarah Shaw.

Thanks, Carolyn

Hello Carolyn

There is a transcript of the Broseley MIs which was done by some local ladies who sell them in aid of church funds. I know from the index that your family are included on page 6 (note the original index has p.8). The transcripts are 4 pounds each plus postage.

I am trying to find out who has some copies of these but it might take a few days. Please keep an eye on this forum. The item will come back to the top of the list when the information is added.

Thank you Mike.  I feel very encouraged and will wait for further details on purchasing a copy.  Is there a William Shaw and Sarah Shaw included in the index as well as William PODMORE SHAW?  Also an Emma, Harriet, Elizabeth and Mary Ann Podmore Shaw?

Hello Carolyn

I now understand that the paper copies of the Broseley MIs are at present out of print and that it will be much later in the year before copies are available again.  In the mean time I have managed to get a copy of the text of the gravestone for your family as follows:-

In loving memory of / Anne / wife of William Podmore SHAW / of Broseley / who died 13 Sept 1854 / aged 37 yrs
Also of the above named / William Podmore SHAW / who died 22 April 1867 / aged 47 years /
Also of Elizabeth SHAW / his sister / who died 12 April 1869 / aged 64 years

Also inside the church is the following:-

Maud SHAW / Member M.U. / 16 Sept 1930

I presume M.U. is an abbreviation for Mothers Union.

Hello Mike,

Thank you so much for this information.  I really appreciate it.  I was hoping there would be something for his parents, as I suspect the existing substantial house on Church Street William Podmore Shaw's sister Elizabeth (aged 30) was owning and occupying in 1838 must surely have belonged to them originally.  However, gravestones get damaged and eroded, so maybe I'm out of luck.

Thanks again,  Carolyn
