WARD FAMILY HISTORY

My great grandfather, George Ward, born 1836 in Tibshelf, Derbyshire, lived in Carleton, Pontefract, and worked as a coachman (Census 1891) for Colonel Cecil Rhodes of Carleton Grange (family information).

In 1891 he was living with his wife Harriet, born 1828 in Nottinghamshire, and daughter Anna (my grandmother). Then, according to the 1901 census, he was living there with wife Mary and a lodger.

Ann was married to my grandfather, Tom Swain and living in Sheffield. I assume that Harriet had died between 1891 and 1901.

I would like to discover the dates of death and place of burial of both George and Harriet.
