Have you tried just googling his name and occupation, there may be a write up on him or something in newspapers as he is a surgeon .

Hi

Yes I have googled his name and found lots of info on him but not his date and place of burial.

Thanks for your input.

Hi

The link that Priscilla provided has an obituary that states that the interment took place at West Kirby Parish Church. It also states he died 29th October 1905 Just click on the page image to enlarge. 

The link below has information about St Bridgets, West Kirby, but it looks as if burials for c1905 haven't been filmed, the original registers are at the Chester Record Office.

Thanks everyone, it now gives me some idea where he was buried, thanks Andy, it was my mistake I should have put  his death as October not December.  I will contact Chester Record Office.
