HI all

Are the burial registers missing for the years 1851-1896 in Llansantffraid-ym-mechan or were they buried elsewhere in that period

Regards Robert.

Hello Robert

Llansantffraid-ym-Mechain is located in the former County of Montgomery, Wales now part of the County of Powys so it is not a place to which we have direct access to information here in Shropshire.

I have found a reference in 'Parish Registers of Wales' page 194 as follows:-

"PR [Parish Register] CB [Christenings Burials] 1757-1813 printed in 1962-6 apparently lost"

At some time in the past I have pencilled by the side that only the burials were printed.  The burials up to 1851 are shown as deposited at the National Library of Wales but there is no reference to burials after 1851 which are the ones you are looking for.

I suggest you contact the Powys Archives at Llandrindod Wells to ascertain whether they have the burials you are looking for and if not whether they know if they are still in the parish.
