There is a large Catholic cemetery at Philip’s Park .
Near the Etihad Stadium.
A bit nearer than the one mentioned.
The area round Butler St was demolished in the fifties and early sixties and a big Council estate built ,bounded by Butler St,Holland St Bradford Road.

I am wondering if Manchester General Cemetery has a Catholic section.
Better known as Queen’s Road Cemetery, or Harpurhey Cemetery but on Rochdale Road.
A little further up on the left as of Queens Road cuts through Rochdale Road after Oldham Road and before Cheetham Hill Road .
Don’t go alone ,sadly it is a place where large gangs of children gather ,they boast” I pushed that  gravestone over “—-!
There was a project to record all the graves there ,I joined a few times but
then could not go .They did wonderful work.
People met on Sunday mornings well organised , Manchester General Cemetery Recording Project., ir Transcription Project, if that is not exact there will be some reference to it .

That’s also included in Manchester records, Viktoria.

There may be graves that are not included in the records. I wonder if your project records were kept separate?

There will be old posts about the project, the organisers always put on RootsChat when there would be a meet ,they were very organised.
I am not sure if their findings have been incorporated in the official records or are separate ,I will try to find details for you .
Cheerio for now.

It might have come to an end but the records will be somewhere.

Thankyou both for replies. I have left a message for a records lookup using the link you provided Vicktoria. Don't worry - I won't be visiting the cemetery anytime soon....I'm on other side of the world!

Oh well then, you could perhaps pop in to see my other rellies, the enormous Cole family from Pinchbeck Fen Linconshire.
Five brothers with families emigrated to Bathurst and Sofala,N.S,W.1853.
They had ten and twelve children and the family  tree is sooooo big!
I even met a Chiropractor from Australia who knew some of my Coles ,here in Lancashire.
Cheerio.Hope I was of some help.
