Annie Walsh death, born in Cork, died in UK?
« on: Tuesday 22 June 21 03:32 BST (UK) »
Hi everyone. I'm new to this site so please excuse me if I'm not going about things the right way.

I'm looking for information on Annie Walsh (born Lochrie), specifically her death and where she was buried. She was born in Cork in roughly 1888 and married John Walsh in 1912. At some stage, they moved to Barrow in Furness, and her son Maurice was born in 1921. She has 3 more children but unsure of where and when. This is when things start to get a bit blurry. Sometime in the 1930s, her husband John passes away and she moves back to Cork with the children.

Another 20 years later and she's visiting family in England (possibly London) and dies after being hit by a car, or so our family believes. We're pretty certain she's buried in the UK and I'd love to be able to locate her grave. I'm also wondering what the likelihood of finding a news story on the incident is?

I'm sure finding a John Walsh is like finding a needle in a haystack so I'm hoping by finding more out about Annie, I can then learn about John.

Any help is appreciated!

P.S. I was searching this site on the off chance someone else was looking for her and incredibly she's actually mentioned in this thread!

Hi Lamlan,

It might be worth you replying to the other thread the member may have found out further information since she posted.

It seems John Walsh is buried  in Section 7 Barrow Cemetery and Crematorium Barrow-In-Furness.
Perhaps Annie is buried with him. https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/214761192/john-walsh

Also in Section 7  of the cemetery is but a different plot John Edward Walsh died 14 days old 8th March 1923. Could be Annie's John E born 1923? https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/214760636/john-edward-walsh 

You could request on Findagrave that someone take a photo of the headstones.
