April A to Z Challenge - One-Name Study Obituaries

I LOVE obituaries. Sometimes they have LOTS of information. Sometimes they have nothing to help a genealogist. Sometimes they are just plain "WRONG". But I still absolutely LOVE obituaries. And funeral notices. And "in memoriams".

Here are a selection of some of my favourite Wardley ones that I have been collecting for my One-Name Study.

This is a post for the April A-Z Challenge. This Challenge will cover each letter of the alphabet, one per day (except Sundays) for the month of April. I didn't register my blog with the organisers, but I'm going to follow along anyway. You can too! See www.a-zchallenge.com for more information.
