Jane Lennox was likely buried at St. Mary unless she belonged to another denomination. There's a Methodist churchyard, Longholme in the town centre. There were several Methodist churches in & around town and a Unitarian church. Also a Catholic church with a churchyard.

Thinking of Jane Hammersley. If she was born abt 1822, whether Carr or Lennox, she could be married before 1845 and her marriage won't be online. I am thinking she must be Carr as she can't be from a first marriage of John Lennox if he was born 1810ish as well as Sarah Jane Latimer as he would only be 12 as well in 1822.

I found a note online that said the marriage of John Lennox and Sarah jane Latimer was at Moneymore First Presbyterian, Apr 24, 1834. Doesn't mean the children's baptisms are there as well. But I went online to find a contact address or other information about this church. There is only a phone number, no website, no email, no minister at the moment. So I phoned. The lady who answered said she had no information, no access to records, and no idea who I would contact. So I went to the Proni website and there is a microfilm covering that year. Since I live 10,000 miles away, and in Covid times, I won't be going there any time soon.
Thanks everyone for your help.

On the 1861 census with Jane Lennox and Jane Hammersley, I think the household above might be another daughter of Jane Lennox, named Ann, and there is an Elizabeth Lennox in the household, age 38, so perhaps a sister to John Lennox. None of this proven as yet.

I searched the GRO and Elizabeth Lennox did die in the March quarter of 1889 in Haslingden. Looks like she did not marry but I am not sure what would be gained by ordering the death certificate if parents are not listed on it. If she was 38 in 1861 she would be born 1822ish and births in Ireland are not found online before 1864 so you would have to find the right church. If parents were listed at death, it would clarify her mothers name. I am thinking sheís Johnís sister. Donít know if she would have a death notice or write up that might help.

wow, isn't that interesting.Elizabeth was a widow. I immediately went to order will but can't find it. tried various spellings, went forward for 10 years, tried just "l" for last name, just Eliza for first name, didn't know what to do. This could be a very interesting will.
So I  went to Ancestry and found the page regarding her will. Why doesn't it come up on Gov.uk? I used the exact same spelling as on Ancestry and the notice regarding probate. Tried with no first name, only Lennox. What to do, what to do?
thank you so much, Comberton.

I wrote to Gov.uk to explain the situation and asked for help. Gave them the details of the will/probate.

Unfortunately they have recently updated the Probate web site and now it is very difficult to use and sounds very frustrating from the threads on here.
