Thanks so much. Wm Nowell was my third great grandfather. I’m often in Oxford, and next time will visit his grave

Thanks, I've added some additional info.
Do you know his actual date of death and/or interment? and the church's name as well?

Vice Admiral William Nowell is buried in Iffley Village, Oxford. I have cleaned up, and tend his grave.
