Where was he buried??
« on: Wednesday 22 November 17 22:43 GMT (UK) »
My great, great grandfather Allen Townend was born in Shelley, Yorkshire in 1825. His death certificate states he died on 15th July 1854, aged 29, at Number 62, Islington, Liverpool of pleuresy, I believe on a visit to the city. But I cannot find where he was buried. Would his family have his body brought back to Yorkshire, I wonder? He was a master grocer so not poverty-stricken I would think. Or was he buried where he died. I have searched all possible burial places in his birth place without success. Can anyone find him please?!

Hi, are those dates correct? the dates would make him 29 at death.

This is the confusing part for Jess!

15th July 1854 at 62, Islington, LIverpool

Is 62 part of the address?
