Leaving East Drayton we moved on to the nearby hamlet of Little Gringley, approximately 4 miles east of Retford, Nottinghamshire. Little Gringley is the birth place of my great grandmother Ziller JACKLIN (née Ziller ALLEN) 1858-1949.
Little Gringley consists of just a few cottages and farms and I doubt it has changed a great deal in over 150 years. There isn't a church in Little Gringley so we were left guessing where the locals would be buried since Little Gringley seemed to be equidistant as the crow flies between Grove and Clarborough.
2007-08-06 I finally found the time to visit the Church of Saint Saviour, Retford, Nottinghamshire, take some photographs and explore the attached cemetery. Photographs are in the Gallery.

My grandfather was Mr Frank Bush who was born at Bush Cottage, Little Gringley on 3rd August 1877. His parents were Joseph and Sarah Bush (nee Woodhead). They are both buried in the churchyard at Clarborough Church. I have lots more information about the Bush family of Little Gringley if anyone is interested.

Keith, thanks for your comment. I was in the area this weekend so I paid a brief visit to St. Saviours. I took some photographs and inspected some of the headstones. Could not find any with the family names I’m looking for: ALLEN and LITTLEWOOD.

I would suggest you try (if you haven't already) the churchyard of St Saviours (Retford) for burials from Little Gringley.
