One thing that is important to remember is that with older graves, especially in cemeteries which for any reason were neglected, although the grave will be registered and/or numbered it is quite possible it is simply no longer to be seen. I enquired about my grandmother and eldest sister who were buried in the same grave and was given a plan of the original burial layout but when I investigated it, because it had been seriously neglected in the past when they tidied it up they just put the remaining gravestones round the edge, laid the main part to lawn and turned it into a sort of memorial garden - no real trace of the grave and if ever there had been a gravestone it was long since gone. Better not to have too high hopes - although you could be lucky.
