Hi Kaz,

 Re:- your Reply -In view of your family loss of late! I would advice not to be involved in graveyard hunting!! as it may have effect on you or a run on effect  with your family in view of their grieving process. Also unless you know what to look for!!** as dangers in winter in these resting places of the dead due to sinkage, over growth and unstable headstones in wet muddy winter. Best left to summer and a good stick to test the ground as you walk around, also a good pair of small shears, a heavy type knife to chop (Tell the  Police you have one)undergrowth and good walking boots/shoes.
Contact the police, tell them your intentions as to neighbour hoodwatch and there is a lot of lead been stolen of late on churches.
They are very helpful also they will know where you are in case of your well being as to any accidents and your where-abouts. Many local police will check on you while they are  on their rounds. Also contact the church wardens  as they may have records.

My sincere deepest sympathy

I'm wondering if someone can help me find the grave of my great great grandad.He was Edmund Wear 1833-1876.I'm pretty certain he's not in Edgerton Cemetery.At one time he had a business in Far Town,but it failed in 1867 and Edmund was declared bankrupt.I live in Glasgow so I come to look myself.Thanks in advance

Hi Edmund is not in Edgerton cemetery. there were some Wear's buried in St. Paul's but the graveyard was full by the time of Edmund's death and he was not buried there.
With them living at Fartown and him not being in Edgerton it could be worth a look at Woodhouse Christ Church or a long shot the chapel that was on Deighton Road.

Thanks for the info on Edmund,I'd be very interested to know the names of the Wears in St Paul's as I've recently found Edmund's siblings.The last address I have in 1871 is York Street and his profession is a cartier.I don't know if that's near any cemetery. I'll leave it up to you local people to see if you can find him.Thanks in advance

Hi Sandy

I called at our library in Huddersfield, I've check burials at St Peter, St Paul , Edgerton cemetery consecrated and non consecrated, Holy Trinity, Almondbury cemetery consecrated and non consecrated  and Christchurch Woodhouse burials. St John Birkby near fartown did not do burials and neither did St Mary on old Leeds road (Nearest church to York street) and the is no sign of Edmund's burial 1876. Edmund's sons were baptised together at Christchurch Woodhouse church 1958 in a joint baptisms. York street now long gone was all but opposite Tescos between Bradford road and Leeds road behind Fitzwilliam street in the triangle of the 3 roads/streets.

 It's also possible Edmund is buried in a Wear (Weare) family grave in Halifax, he could have been a nonconformist (Very likely in Halifax) and buried in a nonconformist chapel graveyard there in Halifax area.

What I'm thinking is the family moved after the 1871 c, Edmund was born in Halifax and his wife Elizabeth born in Doncaster, they could have moved to another part of Huddersfield, the reason I think this is because it seems Christchurch Woodhouse was their church of worship but Edmund is not buried there which have seemed the likely church,

You really need Edmund's death certificate to find out where he lived at his time of death and the reason he died so young, if it was of fever in a mini epidemic ? then they buried them very fast in multi person fever graves and not always recorded in a cemetery record.
