The chances are that in 1958 he'd be buried in a civil cemetery rather than a church yard.

Have a look on Liverpool city council website for a list of cemeteries and possibly contact them for guidance/advice.

Hello All,

Have now moved to Brittany in France,

Cannot seem to find Burial of Grandfather Alexander Harold Robinson b 1886/7 N ireland--died June 20th(my birthday) 1958 in hospital in Liverpool.
He had a Pawnshop  in Broad Green Road  area of LIVERPOOL-HIS COMMONLAW WIFE DOROTHY Olive Davies/Robinson,now deceased  was witness on death cert.  I am unable to visit record office-but would I get this information,and I have no idea if he was buried or cremated,He married Nellie Boyle in 1915 in Auchnacloy Co Tyrone-and never divorced----He was then Presbyterian--but things change,any help out there--I am now 72 yrs and fear I WILL NEVER have chance to know .Thank You

Hi,Pauline,
Thank You for your reply
Every time I look at site-it does not seem to have an area to ask about Burials or Cremations.

Will try to find out if there is department or Office for that sort of query.
Thanks
