 :)

Now that you know their names you can find them on http://www.lan-opc.org.uk/ to confirm the grave number.

118 Briercliffe Road appears to have been the address of Burnley workhouse.
See: http://www.workhouses.org.uk/Burnley/

Thank you once again for all the info, I am very grateful and so is my friend. William H Morley's home address at the time of his death was 438 Briercliffe Road Burnley, I have found his will index on Ancestry. 118 Briercliffe Rd was indeed the workhouse, at some point it became Burnley General Hospital. Why William was in there I don't know. I have been able to connect all the names buried with William except one. Strangely enough his wife Susannah died November 1927 but don't know as yet where she is buried. Her maiden name was Hartley so as you can imagine her family are proving harder to find. However, I digress, thank you once again. :)
best wishes

Hi,

I finally managed to get to the cemetery, but. sadly there is no headstone for grave A696.

Regards,
Mo
