Quaker Burial Records & Chorlton cum Hardy Burial Records
« on: Monday 18 October 10 21:40 BST (UK) »
Can anyone tell me where the burial records for Quakers who lived in the Manchester area in the 1870's - early 1900's are held?
In addition, does anyone have any idea of where I might find burial records for Chorlton cum Hardy? I spent many hours at the records office in Manchester today and while everyone there did what they could to help we came away without a single bit of new information.

Manchesters Southern Cemetery will probably be the records you want. I've no Idea though whether the Quakers would use the Non conformist plots or not though. The nearest purely Quaker Burial ground I know of is quite a distance away in Cheshire.

Doubtless someone Knowledgable about the subject will be along shortly.
Monk- pre 1783 Anglezarke / Rivington
Jolly-Chorley, Wigan, Heapey, Heath Charnock, Rivington, Anglezarke, Prestwich
Ebrey- Oswestry, Wrexham, Pendleton, Childs Ercall
Murray- Shropshire/Cheshire
Harrison- Stoke/Burslem
