Possible photograph of a grave in Southern Cemetery.......
« on: Monday 01 January 18 17:55 GMT (UK) »
Hi,  I am wondering if anyone lives near Southern Cemetery, Wilford Hill, who could possible take a photo of a grave site for me please.

The grave is of my grandfather George Prike, buried 18th October 1957.  The section number is F16 and the grave number is 4.  I have a map of the cemetery which I can email, if anyone was able to go.  The only other thing is, this is a communal grave and I don't know if there would be a headstone, but it would be nice just to see the place of burial.

There is no rush for this, whenever anybody might be going, when the weather is better.

Thank you.

Diana

When I saw Southern Cemetery  my first thought was  Manchester.
But I did not recognise the location
Could you be more specific?

I am very sorry for not putting a message on here before to say that Glynm has taken photos for me.

I am very grateful for everyone's help and I do apologise for my lapse in memory.
