Thank you everyone for all your information regarding the burial place of James Slack.  I am getting the feeling that he could have been either buried in or around Leek Staffs or Hyde Cheshire.   As you know on the census' it states that he was born in Norbury Staffs, which could have been Knotbury as it is very close to Wildborclough, and as to the Hyde connection, some of the Slack family lived in the area including his son.  The address in Hyde was Ivy Cottage Joel Lane Hyde Cheshire.  Perhaps he is buried in that area, although his wife Margaret who died in 1904, and died at her son's address in Hyde, is buried in Sutton Macclesfield .    All very mysterious.  Looking through all the searches, I can see that there are loads of James Slacks' in the winsford area, but I don't think these are connected.  The only problem I have, is that there are a lots of James Slacks' in the Sutton Macclesfield area as well.  I will have to get back to drawing board I think  Thanks everyone.

Thank you everyone who has searched for me in looking for James Slack's burial place (1824-1898).  I am now going to concentrate on the Longnor Staffs area, and maybe try and get to that area to search.   Thanks again everyone, for all your work, I will keep on trying to find where he is buried and indeed his true place of birth.    A few people have suggested that Abraham Slack is his brother, and I am also thinking along those lines.   I have found out  that quite a few of the Slack family moved to the Hyde/Stalybridge in the 1900's, so I wonder if there is a connection there.   Thanks again.

Thank you everyone for helping in my search.    You wanted to know who was mentioned on the wedding certificate.   James Slack (1824) was 30  when he married Margaret Kemp on the 18th January 1854 .   James 's father was listed also as James and was a labourer.  The witnesses were Henry James Bryan and Thomas Holland.  It does not say that James Snr was dec'd, so he must have still been alive on that date.

Sorry, but this statement isn’t correct. There have been many threads on Rootschat on this very subject. It depended upon whether the question ‘is your father still alive?’ was asked of the bride or groom or, if it wasn’t asked, if they actually offered the information.

You cannot say conclusively that the absence of the word ‘deceased’ means that the father was still alive.

Edit: I now realise this point already covered in Carols reply #17

There appear to be a number of possibilities for James' burial site in Sutton.

Thanks to everyone with all the advice  I have now found out that James Slack (1823/24)  is buried in Sutton Churchyard Macclesfield .  Unfortunately when he died on the 13th January 1898 the incumbent forgot to write down the grave number, so although I know he is there I don't know which grave he is in.   Thanks again to everyone.
