Glaves John Burke
« on: Friday 24 November 17 21:04 GMT (UK) »
Hi,

I need some help tracing a 'Glaves John Burke'.

According to Southern Cemetery, Manchester, England, records Glaves John Burke was buried on 23rd Oct 1918 in the same grave as Margaret Frances Smith. I'm aware of the Smiths but I've no idea who this Glaves John Burke is. I can't find anything about him; the name may be a typo and even transcribed in to the wrong grave (I've had that before).

Regards

No, sorry; just got his burial date.

I thought it was such an unusual name he'd turn up in searches but no luck so far.

In the Dec qtr 1918 there is only a John G Burke aged 30 - registered Barton on Irwell

Might be best to look at the actual burial record if possible - or is that what you have already seen

Hi,

Can you give me any pointers to where you found that information? All I've managed to find is a pointer to findagrave.com that sends me back to where I started!

Hi

It's in the England & Scotland, Select Cemetery Registers, 1800-2016 on Ancestry

It's possible the Barton death is the right one as the age matches

per www.lancashirebmd.org.uk - death was registered in the sub district of Stretford but as John G so middle name not shown in full

Hi Daisy,

That looks promising, especially given it's GRO as you'd expect it to be accurate.

I'll ask Southern Cemetery to check their transcription that produced 'Glaves John Burke'.

Regards

PS: Still don't know of any association between Burke and the others in the grave!
