Lancashire / Death Cert Advice
« on: Thursday 15 March 12 17:28 GMT (UK)  »
I have just received a death certificate for my Great x 2 grandmother Winifred Price dated of death 23 December 1904.

Cause of death is heart disease due to natural causes however the informant on the certificate was the Manchester Coroner Ernest A Gibson which indicates she must have undergone a post that correct??

Also her occupation is shown as Wife of John Price ( my great x 2 grandfather) Does this mean he must have been still alive at the time of Winifred`s death??

I cant find either of them in 1901 census still!

Lancashire / Missing Family 1901 Census Hulme Manchester
« on: Wednesday 14 March 12 21:39 GMT (UK)  »
Can any more experienced researchers help me.
I have researched the Price family back to 1813ish in Pershore however since 1850 they have been living in Hulme.
I have them in the Census 1851 to 1891 and then various members again in 1911 however the whole family seem to disappear in the 1901 census!!

Father:John Price, 1851
Mother:Winifred Foy 1856
Children :Thomas Price 1878, John Price 1883, Margaret Ann 1887,Maria Price 1891

I believe Winifred died in 1904/ Maria maybe in 1894 and Thomas 1915 (WW1).

Any suggestions???

I am trying to identify who the husband was of MARY PRICE died Pershore Q1 1868.....i believe her husband may have been JOHN Price born circa 1813 Pershore.
John is my great x 3 grandfather who was living in Hulme Manchester before and after this death but he was born in Pershore so just wondered if for some reason his wife Mary died there.
The Mary I am looking for was born 1819 in Dunham Cheshire.
