Recommended Posts

Stephen. Been to the graveyard today just to do the final check on the new (1903) Extension should be finished by next Sat The friends where there and uncovered a few graves for me We also turned one over it was of a Edward Lloyd and Thomas Lloyd as an M.I. on it Died 23 Feb 1915 the oldest son of Edward and Mary. I will send you a Photo by Email if you want one let me know

Here is how things are going from the Plan that I found, I have Numbered all the graves and took Photo all the graves I then Transfared the M.I. to the funeral books So if someone is looking for a Arthur Green they can find him in the Funeral book which is searchable at the side of his name will be his grave No so if by looking at the grave No you will find who else is buried in that Grave if you then go to the Photo file there is a photo of the grave

Well is as taken a wail But it is done All of the new extensions 1903 and 1913 just over 400 graves and over 1300 names The original grave plan as gone to be copied and the grave No's and name to be put on. My next job is the section on the left going down the path from the church. I have found more plans of the graveyard I've not seen them yet they should be here in about a week or so

Most where buried in common graves I have not found any yet but I have only scratched the surface so to speak, A few from 1 Warrington Rd do have family graves

Thanks Ned, you are doing a great job. Will there be a downloadable graveyard map of St Mary's?

On two the C.W.G.C. Stanley is 130 and Hale is No 147 but I get them as 129 and 148.

 

Ned, I have been looking at the plan and MI's from St Annes Sutton and the two do not tie up exactly so I assume at some stage extra graves were added on the end of rows, perhaps St Mary's is the same.

Yes sorry found the fault was one row had 44 graves but the row that Stanley is in only had 43 I have corrected the data base Thanks Tony

Started on Section 2 now this is on the left coming down the path from the Church Only 121 graves so should not take long I hope after that 6 more sections and it will be done

Someone I know of is looking too Ted for details of a family of Hewitts

 

John Hewitt born 1789 and died 1866 and his wife Mary(nee Marsh I think) born 1795 died between 1842+51? we cant find her death He was a well to do watch and chronometer maker lived in Atherton Street. If you can find details of this grave on your travels that would be great

 

 

We have a lot of info for these and I'm only interested in this info, to save anyone time searching for other stuff

Ratty,

Are the Hewittts you are looking for related to the Alexandra PH Hewitts?

I dont know Halj I never went that far in researching but I think someone else did say he was a later member of the family. I was just involved in the earlier stuff. This John seemed to have had a link to the watch factory or maybe his son I cant remember now.



Thanks very much for looking Ted, theres no rush, he's not going anywhere ;)

Hello

 

I am currently trying to locate the graves of the following (my 2 x Gt Grandparents & 3x Gt Grandparents) who were buried at St Mary's, Prescot:

 

Thomas Lyon (23 Dec 1838 - 13 May 1869)
Jane Lyon (1835 - 1910)
William Lyon (19 Feb 1808 - 29 Mar 1867)
Sarah Lyon (12 June 1808 - June 1867)
John Jones (1775? - 1777? - Apr 1842)
Ellen Jones (7 Oct 1775 - Aug 1853)

 

 

If anyone knows of any way to establish the whereabouts of their graves, it would be much appreciated.

 

I believe that someone has started to compile a map (Ned?), it would mean so much to learn where these people are buried.

 

Hope that someone can help!

 

J

Thank you for your help so far, it is much appreciated. I am really hoping that the graves can be located in the cemetery & that there are gravestones to mark them.
