Question for Freda Chorlton

Started by: paddy2t10 (478)

Hello Freda,

My 3x great grandparents both died in 1911 in Ince, Celia and Francis Taylor. Celia was buried in Ince Cemetery but i cant find Francis anywhere, tried Wigan Cemetery and still no luck. Celia was buried in a public grave but Francis is nowhere to be seen.

Hope you can help, thanks

I have only just picked up on this, and have checked my Cemetery Records, but like you found nothing.
Is The one found by mygriffiths the correct one ???

Hi Freda, the trancription work you do has been a massive help with my family tree research. I vaguely remember a comment (I think it may have been from you ages ago) that the cemetery records are for those buried there (including ashes), but not are not cremation records. Is this the case? How would we be able to look at the cremation records, ie are they available to search through. Thanks

Fantastic! thank you mygriffiths, I hadn't thought of searching Lancsopc. I just presumed that they would have atleast been buried in the same cemetery if not same grave. Quite sad really, wonder why that was they both lived at 9 Brown St as well. And as Carol said, thanks Freda for you hard work transcribing the records!

Just found that Francis Taylor's parents Joseph and Jane Taylor were buried in St. Davids 11 years before Francis died. They were 84 and 87. Perhaps Francis was buried with them and then Celia died less than two months later on 7th Sept 1911 but had to be buried in Ince

Carol gr -- Yes I did say previously that cremated remains are in my burial records provided that they are buried in an existing grave.
Cremation records are not available to search.
You can contact the Cemeteries Office for information, but I think that they make a charge for doing searches of any kind now.
Thanks to everyone for your messages of appreciation, it IS very time consuming - I spend 4 to 5 hours per day.
I decided to do it because it's something that I wished had been in place when I was doing my own research.

Thanks Freda. I had seen that you can pay for a specific search (I think it's 9 pounds per person), but as it is one other avenue of research to try to tie up some loose ends and I don't really have specific information, I'd probably end up spending a fortune with no garanteed returns.

I'm just pleased that I got them onto WW before the charging came in early this year. At least lots of people worldwide know that they can do look ups free of charge on here.

I have been trying to hunt you down Freda :-) to thank you for your work. I live in New Zealand and I use your index's frequently and I often think of how wonderful you are for collecting and compiling this information without expecting anything in return. THANK YOU for all your time and effort!

Hi freda
Firstly I’d like to say thank you very much for all your hard work into documenting everyone’s graves. I think I speak for everyone in saying you’ve done a fab job.
I also have a question, if you could kindly help me?
I’ve been searching for my great grandad Daniels grave and I can’t locate him anywhere, we have everything from his birth, death and marriage certificates we also have the invoice from his funeral but we have no plot....
On the transcript it says Leigh and my nan (his daughter) always said he was buried in leigh but we can’t locate it!
We’ve even been into the cemetery but either it’s no longer there or it never was!
Is there anyway you would know where we should look next
He is called Daniel Kendrick born 8th Dec 1904 died 4th Nov 1939
His wife was Elizabeth 1910-1963

If you could point me to the right direction that would be great
Thanks xx

Celia and Francis Taylor were my Great Great Grandparents. My grandmother was Margaret Alice Winstanley b. 1900 and my grandfather was Albert Kearsley, b. 1898. I would like to make contact with paddy2t10 as we are obviously related. I've only just registered and don't know how to do this, but I noticed this person has posted a question to you Freda. Is there anyway I can make contact? Thanks
