Welcome to rootschat Alberto.

A list of Knutsford Cemeteries and Churches here:

Somewhere to start the search:

I canít vouch for completeness or otherwise of these records.

Knutsford Cemetery records are at Deceased Online, but he doesn't seem to be there.

All I could see at Ancestry was an image of the GRO index showing the Bucklow Registration District, which included Knutsford but lots of other places as well. If you have the certificate, can you give us a more exact place of death, which might suggest a particular churchyard or a different cemetery etc?
Researching among others:
Bartle, Bilton, Campbell, Craven, Emmott, Harcourt, Hirst, Kellet(t), Kennedy,
Meaburn, Mennile/Meynell, Metcalf(e), Palliser, Robinson, Rutter, Shipley, Stow, Wilkinson

Peover Superior is also known as Over Peover.

Possible burial sites within a few minutes' walk from residence/place of death:

St. Lawrence Church, Peover Park (next to Peover Hall)
or
Over Peover Methodist Chapel, Cinder Lane
or
Snelson Methodist Chapel, Pepper Street

The first graveyard is extensive since the church is very old.
The latter two are tiny in comparison.
