More Info

I have just accessed your wonderful website whilst doing some genealogical browsing.  I think I have found some of my ancestors by the name of Rothero on your list of gravestones.  In the transcription for Eliza Rothero I believe that the year of birth is likely to be c1806 as the information ties up with my researches on Edward and Eliza and think that they must be my ancestors.  I have no idea if you would wish to correct it or not and am certainly not trying to make work for you!!!  However, I have Edward born 1800 in Clifford, Herefordshire married to Eliza Welstead born in Alderley (or Alderhay), Gloucestershire.  According to BMD info on line Eliza died in 1878 aged 73 (in the last quarter of the year is all I have so far) and that seems to tie up with what you have transcribed from the gravestone.
