I have a Death Cert. and a PR Burial entry at Nash Chapel (1900) which have the above as the place of abode.

I can't find it on any maps (NLS), the nearest I can find is Titrail on the Clee Hill to Nash road.

My question is:- would the local dialect at that time result in Titrail being heard as Titral? If not does anyone have any suggestions/knowledge of where Titral was/is located.

Regards,

Malcolm.

Hello Malcolm

Whilst I am not familiar with the area I feel sure you have found the correct place with Titrail.  After all the spelling between Titral and Titrail is only one letter different regardless of accent.  The spelling had perhaps more to do with the minister who made the entry - perhaps he wasn't local.

I had wondered whether the place spelling had evolved over time but both the 1884 and the 1903 Ordnance Survey 25 inch maps use the same spelling as the modern map.

Hi Mike, 

Those were my thoughts and findings too but the fact that the Registrar in Cleobury M heard/recorded exactly the same as the Vicar in Burford (1st Portion) caused me to wonder.

Regards,

Malcolm.
