Sun Street, Oldham
« on: Monday 10 June 19 22:32 BST (UK) »
Hi, I'm trying to locate where Sun Street in Oldham was around the 1920's. I am looking to find which churches are nearby in order to look for a grave I've been unable to locate (in another thread). I think this is the best route forward as they, Mark & Elizabeth Dale, must be buried in a churchyard somewhere.
Thanks, luke

Quite probably in a municipal cemetery?
I don't think that church graveyards were still in use in 1920's?

I have copied this from the Oldham page on GenUKI:

Looking on the front page of the 1911 census, the district was Coldhurst in the parish of Holy Trinity

If you look on this map, find Coldhurst Hollow and Sun Street would have been near Anchor Street

There's no Mark I can see but several Elizabeths.

Thank you everyone. I cant find any burial detail for them in any of the cemeteries or for cremation despite have exact dates of death so just assumed they must be buried within a church yard somewhere close to their home.

Thanks for the help; the comparrison map is fantastic Stanmapstone.
