“It says he is buried at Onchan”

Is this your source?

He was Albert Richard Delatrey b.1880

He was b Southwark & his birth, marriage & death registrations show spelling as Dealtrey not Delatrey

Eileen Margaret b 1909 Wandsworth
Albert Sidney b 1913 Yorkshire
Kathleen Mary b 1916 Ormskirk Lancs

Death registered in Douglas.

Manx Museum has paper records of burials, and Monumental Inscriptions.

Hi yes wonderful thank you. Yes it was the link mentioned above. Dealtrey. HI Wife and daughter who also sadly died from TB moved way when he died back to Lancashire so it would only be him buried on the Isle of Man. Mt grandad was Manager of the M&S store in Douglas and flew back and fore to Liverpool, visiting friends on the island when he was there. Albert Dealtrey ran the Colonade Cafe on Victoria Street with his wife Margaret ( nee Walshe) and then they had the Bray House hotel later renamed The Gresham. She sold up and moved after he died.

Please note he was buried at Douglas Borough Cemetery not at Onchan. I've been caught out myself by this Onchan/Dbc thing in the past and been at the wrong location looking for a grave  ;D

DEALTRY, Albert Richard    47    Dbc    27 Jan 1928

Before Douglas became a town/parish, what is now Douglas was split between the parishes of Braddan and Onchan.
But 1928 is a little late for this confusion? Curious!

Probably Kirk Onchan - St Peter. Onchan is still an area of North Douglas

Burial is at Douglas Borough Cemetery though.

Just to reiterate, we've had this problem before with burial records saying Onchan when the actual burial place is Douglas Borough Cemetery. See this previous thread:-
