Herbert Seversmith, one of the great genealogists, had this to say from his work on Roger Ludlow:
"It is not known when Roger Ludlow died, but it was probably about 1665-1666. No will is reported any Irish indexes (they have been thoroughly searched) and none has been found in English calendars. It is suggested that when he died he possessed very little estate, or had passed title to his living children; as a non-conformist and cousin of a well-known regicide (Sir Edmund Ludlow) he may have made no will in order that his family might escape the royal notice. It is not known where he was buried."Baptized Dinton, Wiltshire, 7 March 1590, third son of Thomas and Jane (Pyle) Ludlow. Magistrate who came from Wiltshire to Massachusetts Bay in 1630 in the "Mary and John." First settled in Dorchester; moved to Windsor in 1635. Died by about 1666.
Married after 1623 Mary Cogan, daughter of Philobert and Anne (Marshall) Cogan. She was buried at Dublin on 3 June 1664 ("Mrs. Mary Ludlow, wife of Roger Ludlow."

This Roger Ludlow went back to Great Britain by 1654 and died in Dublin. If there is a Roger Ludlow buried in this cemetary it may be his son. There is a tremendous amount of documentation on Roger Ludlow who was my 11x great grandfather.
