I just wondered if anyone has access to the booklet of MI's for St Wilfred's, Grappenhall. I've found burials for Thomas Leigh (buried 21 July 1874) and Jane Leigh (buried 10 Jan 1869) in the Parish registers. I'm hoping there may be further information about their family group, children etc, on the headstone.

Thanks in advance.

That's brilliant, thank you. I live in Norfolk so it's not exactly easy to get to the record office! I'd better get to work on the Parish records  :)
