Jonathan Beardsworth
« on: Wednesday 28 March 18 15:16 BST (UK) »
Just received the death certificate of my Maternal Great Grandfather, Jonathan Beadsworth.  Date of death is 22nd December 1914, place of death is Fulwood Workhouse.  I am looking for any information I can find regarding his time there and possible place of burial.  Lancashire Archives have some information but nothing that seems relevant.  Any information greatly received.

Is it Beadsworth or Beardsworth? 

Have you found him on the 1911 census to see what his situation is?  Married, occupation etc  :)

It is "Beardsworth"

Jonathan's wife Margaret died in 1897.  On the 1911 census Jonathan is shown as being resident at Shepherd Street Mission.

The most likely burial place would be Preston Cemetery.  I don't think they have online records, but they can be viewed at the record office in Bow Lane, Preston.
There is also the cemsearch site:

https://www.cemsearch.co.uk/preston/preston.html

from which you can buy a list of MI's for a particular surname. There are some Beardsworth inscriptions, but it is perhaps more likely that a person who died in the workhouse did not have a memorial stone.

Is this his wife's burial

Burial: 24 Aug 1897 St Saviour, Bamber Bridge, Lancashire, England
Margaret Beardsworth -
    Age: 40 years
    Abode: Bamber Bridge
    Buried by: George Hilton Curate

the burial records for St Saviour on lan-opc only go up to 1900 but there are quite a few other Beardsworth burials there pre 1900
