This CD will be of interest to anyone fascinated by maritime history regarding not only the Pilots but the names of ships, places they were registered, their port of origin and the diverse cargos carried into the ports of the Severn estuary.
The Log itself appears to be an account register relating to charges made for Piloting Ships from the Bristol Channel to Gloucester etc  It is a fascinating insight into shipping in the Severn Estuary during this period, and whether you’re interested in the movement of goods world wide, the History of ships, or the fascinating place names where the ships were registered or the goods were loaded, that completed their journey to the ports of Lydney, Sharpness, Gloucester etc. and not forgetting the families that acted as Pilots it is a fascinating read.

This CD contains a full transcription of the register 386 individual images of the pages transcribed, and a short histiory of the Severn Pilots.

This CD is currently not available as a download due to size of content.

A History of the County of Gloucester Vol 4 states that in 1856 a cemetery of 13 acres was laid out at Tredworth but was not opened until 1857 when the old city churchyards ceased.

A second city cemetery at Coney Hill was laid out in 1934 but was not opened for burials until 1939 with the first interment taking place 10 May 1939. This cemetery is still used today.

A Crematorium was built in the grounds of the Coney Hill cemetery and the first cremation took place there on the 7 January 1953. Many ashes were then either scattered or interred in or on Graves in both cemeteries.
