Yes they are really beautiful.
There was some mention of Elijah Mayer being buried at St John's Church, Hanley.  Unfortunately, although the church building is there, it isn't used as a church anymore.  I don't know what happened to the graves.

Hello Black Basalts, have you looked for Elijah in the Northern Ceramic Society publications?  They are all indexed and I'm sure there will be information about him there.  I found them very useful when researching my potter ancestors who were in Hanley/Stoke in the late 18th and early 19th century.

Regards,
