Parr St.Peter's Burial Plot

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I'm trying to find the burial plots of several relatives who were interred at Parr St.Peter's but I can find no point of contact online for this type of query.  Other churches in the area either provide a list of contacts (eg Rainford) or even a query tool via the Church website (eg Winwick).

Anyone know who/how to contact the right person at St.Peter's to help with my quest?

Ratty was a great help when i was trying to do this.  Following up on his information I eventually went to the vicarage on one of my visits to St Helens.  The lady there (i presume the Vicar's wife)  allowed me to look at the old burial records plot plan and i eventually found the grave.  Good look with your quest.

Many thanks, Wanderer.  That seems an extremely obscure way to access records....but if it works, who am I to criticize?  I just wish the Parish was better organized or at least provided decent contact mechanisms. 

Perhaps Ratty will be along shortly to offer his sage advice.

Hi RATTY,

Absolutely no worries.  We all get a little distrac....oooh, squirrel!  Sorry...distracted from time to time.  Glad to benefit from your expertise on this question.

I thoughtJan123's recommendation of the CD-ROM from the Liverpool and Southwest Lancs Family History Society would be perfect.  Unfortunately, the ordering process doesn't appear to be working.  I sent them a message but, as a pure volunteer organization, I expect a long wait before I hear anything (if I get any response at all).

Do you have any other ideas?

I ordered 2 CDs online yesterday with no problems whatsoever. I live in Brum, UK.

It's probably an international sales problem, then.  I did use the international sales site but the confirmation simply didn't go through.

Yeah, it seemed to go alright for me for this country when I tried last night , but they do give a little disclaimer on the site to say it is staffed by a few volunteers and may be slower than normal to get a response. I'd just email them to check all is ok.

I'll give it another try next week and see if it works.  In the meantime I'll email the Society again in hopes of getting an answer.

Hi Tessmop,

Yes, I am looking for a number of Haseldens.  I expected to find 2 John's and the Edward.  I need to investigate the Alive as that's an unexpected find.

I was also hoping to find a William Pountney.  His wife, Elizabeth, was another Haselden.
