9 David Hallam (Specialist in 19th Century Beeston and District), http://www.beeston-notts.co.uk, Email Feb 2005. Re DOARS : actually I do have a current interest. I am looking for anything on a Emelette Aquilla DOAR (b c1857, Stanton by Dale, d. of William & Sarah - nee BAGULEY) who married George ANDREW, an Ilkeston Ironmonger in 1879. She died in 1922 and was buried in Ilkeston Cemetery where a MI survives. I am particularly interested in connecting her with the Beeston DOARs.

The first part of the service was held in the Parish Church, in connection with which the deceased lady had been a regular and consistent worker for many years. The service was taken by the Vicar (Rev A W Bell), the lesson being read by the Curate (Rev C C Fogarty). The coffin was of unpolished oak, with antique copper appointments.
