b.1852 – d.1899
Annie JAMES appears in the Manor burial register (6882/9/2) as case number 1. As far as anyone is aware Annie was the very first burial at Horton cemetery upon opening. We have not yet found any reference to a burial plot. I expect to find much more information on Annie once I access her records, which is yet to be done.
Annie had entered Horton asylum on 24 June 1899, and died a month later on 26 July 1899.
As there are multiple possible records for Annie’s life before the asylum, I choose to put this story aside until I have a copy of her records, which is expected to be found at the start of record 6282/14/4.
