Hi Dob

Do you have the burial records for Lockwood?

I've got a Robert TAYLOR buried there on 8 May 1831.  Do you have the grave number or if there's anyone buried with him please?

Thank you and Merry Christmas

Hi, Thanks your reply!

First the grave yard opposite the 4 horse shoes pub!
Hard to find ( the chaple has been knocked down and grave yard may have been uprooted)


Coming down Whiteley street from Manchester road? go over the canal bridge! and the 4 Horse  pub is on the left. --A road from the  accute right joins Whiteley street (Ignore this)at this Junction there is another road going into a corner straight oppostite the pub at 10 oclock left  from its front door!
Go right in to the corner on the Right side of this road and you will see a hidden path with railing on the left -Go down the path. graveyard on the left over the railngs! if still there..?

At the library!- Bottom parish  fiche drawers -are none conformist fiche ( none orthadox) -look in the Milnsbidge for Graves info../ Marsden have graves  so Milnsbridge may have.

If there are any Insciptions/epitaph/Dedications they are in the right corner!(Past counter) at the side of the Achive office door in the local studies library room! on lower bottom shelves (Short wall)

Also all family history books & Huddersfield Family History Society info are here as well.

The Hudds Family history society roots celler is at Meltham town 'T' junction centre! in a row of shops on the right as you see the church! coming from Hudds town road, they have film readers and fiche info, also have loads on their computor database !!So ask! first before looking in the fiche. They will let you use there stuff free if your not amember but  donation is welcome.( Ie Heating cost) but their parish reg copies are only 25p as library is 55p. Thus  look up in the library and go there for copies

Also West Yorkshire Archive Service Wakfield has all there is to know on Colne valley ancestry and free car parking but need token from them to leave. Its near the police station.

Also the YAS -side of Leeds uni- has free carparking and loads of bumph!
