Locating a Grave in Huddersfield
« on: Tuesday 29 January 08 00:34 GMT (UK) »
Hi,

Can anyone help me?  I'm trying to locate the grave of my ggrandfather, he died in Huddersfield in June 1913, his name was Job Cock(s)/Cox.  At the time of his death he was living in Lockwood, before that Linthwaite.

I would me most grateful for any help on this, last time I visited Huddersfield I searched Lockwood cemetery but couldn't find his grave there.  His wife's name was Mary who died in Dec 1911.

Thanks for your time.

Libby

In my opinion the marriage residence is not always the place of birth. Never forget Workhouse and overseers accounts records of birth

See what turns up! if hes in the a cemetery there will be records but if hes in a church yard then records are if'fy.
Do you know if his family had a family grave and that being his birth place. I've *(Parents grave) come across that! St Peter and Almondbury have records but Rashchiff was cleared years ago !no records I think. Theres a church between Lockwood and Crossland moor also Newsome. Just a question of searching the grave yards on them. It may take a while

Hi Dob,

I feel certain he will have a headstone as his business was cab proprietor/funeral director.  At the time of his death he lived at Albert Street Lockwood.  I made a mistake on my original post sorry, his wife Mary diied in 1906, and Job Apr 1913.  I'll keep my fingers crossed he's in a cemetery.

I'm also trying to locate his father's grave, his name Joshua, born c.1810, died 1886 in Linthwaite.  Wife's name Susannah died 1889 also Linthwaite.  I'd guess they were buried at Linthwaite Christ Church, do you know if graves there are still standing or have they been cleared?

Thanks so much for offering to help me.

Regards Libby

Hi Libby
Linthwaite I know well as I was obeying the law of nature behind a bush earlier this year in that church yard photoing  Beaumont's graves for a friend ! when a cricket ball flew over and in seconds surounded by cricketers.  Fasted zip up in history.

Well back to your post ! the above answers your Linthwaite question if headstones still there.

Well leave it with me and  I will post findings on records but maybe a while for church yards as its artic weather here at the moment!

Dob

me at the church yard :o

Not on Sunday afternoons but its fooball season now so ok. I can handle football hooligans but cricketers are a law to them selfs all polite and proper posh poopers like punching into fresh air. Rugby scrums are a bit behond graveyards but not very ....fresh...airy.

PS Linthwaite has semi moden cem late 1800's (1880+)to pres-day and were you graves  Anglican or None conformist as cems have different section for each.

Albert St brings in Edgerton cem

Hi Dob,

I cannot say with certainty, but I'd guess Joshua and Susannah were buried as non conformists.  It's difficult to call, as some of their children were baptised at Salendine Nook baptists, others christened C of E.  It could be Susannah was nonconformist (she was baptised) and Joshua C of E.  Sorry if this uncertainty makes the search more difficult.

I hope the Colne Valley weather isn't too cold.  I used to live in the Holme Valley and remember the freezing winters there.  I too remember how pretty everywhere looked when covered in snow, but that was when there wasn't a lot of road traffic turning snow to dirty slush.
