This is a long shot but ….. Does anyone have any information on what happened to my Grandmother Doris Nellie Glynn, she was born 24th June 1900 in Birmingham. She married my Grandfather William Price in 1920 and after he died she married Benjamin Caseriel Summers in 1932. After this nobody knows what happened to her and I have tried various searches in Ancestry, FMP etc. but have got nowhere.

I am trying to locate where my grandmother Ivy Maud Wiiliams nee Meade was buried. She died in Portsmouth in 1952 aged 56, but neither the local records office or cemeteries have any information. I have tried the chapel in Govilon, Wales where my grandfather is but no luck. Have also looked in Lewes, Sussex where she was born. Just hoping someone may have a suggestion on where to look next. Thank you.
