Hi Paul, 

A warm welcome to Rootschat.

I think that this is the information you are looking for.

Harehills Cemetery, Leeds

15th November 1951 burial of Emily Hepworth aged 70 years.  Grave type unconsecrated.  Grave Section U6.  Grave number 238.  Emily is buried alongside a further six people who all died in 1951 and appear to be unrelated.

2nd April 1962  burial of James Henry Hepworth aged 77 years.  Grave type Unconsecrated.  Grave Section G4.  Grave number 64.  James is buried alongside a further ten people who all died in 1962 and appear to be unrelated.

I hope that this information is of some use to you.

Best Wishes

Thanks for the quick reply. Seems like the second page was reserved for his wife, then again he was married 3 times as I have been told  :)
