St Michael the Archangel

Headstone – Photograph (PWDRO 244/3); 1929

The headstone depicted in PWDRO 244/3 shows no indication of where it is located, although it bears the name of Charles Law Biscoe, who died in January 1929. Probate records state that he was ‘of Kingswood Teignmouth’ (The National Archive Probate 1929). This house is in Dawlish Road, in the Parish of St Michael. A visit in July 2015 found no matching headstone in the churchyard of St Michael’s, although several were no longer visible behind overgrown vegetation. It could also be the case that Biscoe was not buried here.
