Waveney Norse Limited did not have the information requested.

Mr Hugh Manningtree

Dear Waveney Norse Limited,

please could you tell me the number of retired police officers buried in the cemeteries of Lowestoft, Bungay, and Beccles since 1993.

Yours faithfully,

Mr Hugh Manningtree

Stanford, Dean,

Dear Mr Manningtree,

Thank you for your enquiry. Unfortunately I am not able to assist you on this occasion as it is not possible to query occupations on the database that our burial records are stored on. There are hand-written burial registers that could be searched, and are public record, so please feel free to call me to arrange an appointment to view the registers for yourself if you wish.

The problem is that often we do not find out a persons occupation. When families meet funeral directors, and are asked the persons occupation, their reply is often simply “retired” and no other details of occupation are taken – unfortunately we only have the information that we are provided with, so a manual time-consuming search of the records for yourself would likely not provide an accurate answer to your query in any case.

Should you require further clarification, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Kind regards,

Neil Thompson
