Pasques of Cumbria continued

This information relates to Chart 29, the descendants of Thomas Pasque of Theberton Suffolk.

Nathan Pasque wrote again yesterday, as a follow-on from the previous blog Pasques of Cumbria. Nathan has kindly provided some photographs of two graves in St. Michael's Church in Lowther, Cumbria.

The first monumental inscriptions reads:

Freda Pasque died 16th June 1936 aged 19 years and of her sister Nada Lily Yates died 7th December 1991 aged 77 years beloved wife of Ernest John died 18th July 1995 aged 78 years At Rest
From the GRO death indexes I found that Nada was born on 7 May 1914. I have not yet located her marriage to Ernest John Yates, who was born on 9 November 1916.

The other monumental inscription reads:

In loving memory of Lily Jane Pasque died 9th March 1961 aged 76 years and of her husband Frederick James died 15th December 1961 aged 77 years At Rest.
Many thanks to Nathan. This information has been included in the database and will be subsequently updated in the next website update.

Information on the village of Lowther is detailed on the Visit Cumbria website, and includes several pictures of the graveyard at St. Michael's Church.
