Online Parish Clerks, Lancashire is VERY good.

So is Lancashire BMD which has included mother's maiden surname on index for some districts for quite a while, before GRO did. Addition of mother's maiden name to Manchester districts ongoing. Then there is Lancashire Archives with online catalogue - LANCAT,  and Lancashire Library service of which I'm a guest/remote member. I'm fortunate that majority of my ancestors I've researched spent at least part of their lives in Lancashire. Today is Lancashire Day.

Agree LancsBMD is excellent, haven't experience of the others.
If your relatives died in Wigan then WiganWorld is the place to look, they have Indices to six Municipal Cemeteries, This is the first Lower Ince the rest are accessable from the same page.
