Annie WATERS died 1925 buried in Phillips Park Cemetery, Manchester
« on: Saturday 28 September 19 13:46 BST (UK) »
I'm researching my great grandmother Annie WATERS nee McDonough, born about 1870 in Liverpool, who was buried, alongside her son, Charles Benson WATERS, in 1925 in Phillips Park Cemetery, section G 574 Consecrated. I made a trip to Manchester but was unable to locate any headstone in section G. If anyone is able to visit the cemetery and has time, I would be most grateful to see the details on a headstone if located. Despite years of research it would appear that my great grandparents did not marry, my great grandfather having been previously married, with no evidence of divorce, and consequently I have been unable to definitively confirm her identity. Any help gratefully received.

Great grandmother Annie WATERS born Liverpool 1870 died Feb. 1925 Manchester
Great grandfather Walter Thomas WATERS born 1861 Liverpool died 1915 Manchester
Great uncle Charles Benson WATERS born 1899 Manchester died Sept 1925 Manchester

Welcome to Rootschat.

Have you contacted the cemetery to see if there is actually a headstone, a lot of families couldn't afford one?
