When I was at school I used to walk along Rusholme Road,  up towards Ardwick Green.  Some yards before reaching the main road there was a very old cemetery,  down a short street on one's right hand side and the big gate was firmly padlocked.   Scary to a young school kid!!  I understood it to be either a typhoid or smallpox cemetery.  Surely the records thereof will be with Manchester City Council.

Hi
Coukld this be the one?
I found this cemetery last week when looking for somewhere for someone.

If you go to
www.old-maps.co.uk

put Manchester in search box
select 1908 pre WW11 1:2500 Lancashire and Furness
coordinates 384606 and 396734

Clifford Street went from Oxford Road to Upper Brook Street
Parallel to Booth Street East.
The map shows a hospital on Clifford Street
Quite close to Rusholme Road cemetery

Just read this post and in regard to the Asiatic cholera which took thousands of lives.I  have an ancestor who died of this 15th october 1834,was buried same day at St Leonards church in Padiham lancashire,he was 40yrs of age.Also another ancestor ,who died of Typhoid in 1876.aged 55.Again Padiham.Disease through poverty and poor living accounted for such for these unfortunate people.Young or old.
