Would this photo help at all?

I do have a section map, but it doesn't show plot numbers.

Hi Sandra,

If you contact Alun Pugh at Friends of Beckett Street Cemetery www.beckettstreetcemetery.org.uk  he has plans of the cemetery and I'm sure he will point the grave out to you.

Hello, sorry to hijack the post. I was wondering you could help me locate my great grandma, Emily Rowley was Robinson. Apparently she died in September 1978 although I'm not sure if that's going to be right. Thank you x

Hi April,

Welcome to RootsChat.

Emily Rowley, age 90, (Widow) died in St James's Hospital, Leeds and was buried in Harehills Cemetery 2nd August 1978. Section G10 unconsecrated grave no. 190 along with 8 unrelated others. There is no monument on the grave.

I think that is the Emily you are searching for but there was another Emily Rowley age 83 years buried in same Cemetery in 1967. Let me know if you want those details.

Regards,

Ian

Also I know my grandad is there and where he is, he is Walter Robert Rowley born 1916 died October 90. His dad was also Walter Rowley and I think if his mum and sister are there then he might be too, he would have died before Emily but not too sure when. X

I have found 2 Walter Rowley's buried in Harehills Cemetery but not one buried Oct 1990.

Walter Rowley 58 buried 24/4/1936, son in law of Arthur Jeffrey 49, buried 20/8/1912 and his wife Jane Ann Jeffrey buried 24/1/1934. Section C Consecrated grave 567.

Walter Rowley 57, buried 18/11/1947 Unconsecrated grave U2295 along with 7 unrelated others.

If you give me the names of Walter's mother and sister I'll have another look for you.

Don't know if I can add a plan of the Cemetery to this post but if not send me you email address via a Personal Message and I'll forward it by email.

Hi Carlene,

Welcome to RC

Cyril Ballan age 55 was buried 18th November 1965 in Sect. V1 Grave 296.

Also in grave 296 is Margaret Ballan age 59, buried 14th February 1946.

There does not appear to be a Memorial stone on this grave.

Hope this helps,

Regards,
