His death certificate did not give his parents' names. If there is a relationship between the three Simmonds from Lot 2, Thomas, Henry and William, I haven't been able to discover it. There was a couple, Thomas Simmonds (1799-1860) and his wife Elizabeth Janet Simmonds (1796-1889) in Christ Church Cemetery, Kildare.
