W BLEASE
« on: Wednesday 16 February 11 13:22 GMT (UK) »
Hi there,

My great grand father was a man named William Blease. I know that he died  in 1909 and lived in Northwich. I am 99% sure that he is not buried in Witton cemetery even though it opened in 1890. I am desperate to discover if he is buried in the old churchyard of Witton church which is adjacent to the cemetery. Does anybody know how I would go about viewing the grave/ burial registers of St Helen's, Witton church?

Thank you,

Adam Blease.

I don't know if this is the whole burial register as there is no information on the page and I cannot see a way to get to the home page of the site.

Well I have searched right through and can not find my William Blease.

Do you know of a similar online source for the buriel registers of the cemetery so that i can double, double check.

Also, are you a Northwich man Stan? I just have no idea where else he would be buried??

Thank you.

Sorry, I don't know of any other on-line site for the burial registers, but who ever made that list must have had access to it, and no, I'm not a 'Northwich Man'  :)

Hi,
  The burial records are from Sue Wallworth,she put them up on rootsweb around nov 2003,she also did Great Budworth and also Davenham,mind you Blease family were also around Barnton which i think was also on rootsweb last year, i used to work with an Eric Blease from Barnton.

Hi Adam,

The on-line records are the M.I.'s from the graveyard attached to St Helen's church, not a complete burial register. It may be that your ancestor is buried in the graveyard, but does not have a stone, or the stone was not legible at the time the information was gathered.

It is a pity the title on the site says "St Helen's Church, Witton, Northwich – Burial Registers"
