Hi there,
have you tried the Lancashire Family History Society?


They seem to have a comprehensive listing of fiches to buy, including the following:

R4 8 5.15 Rochdale; Rochdale (Wardleworth) St Chad CE; St Mary CE Mar Index 1813 - 1837

Have you already seen the marriage record of Joseph Greenwood and Maria Whitaker? I am guessing it might be included in this listing.

If you have already done this, it might be worth joining, so that you can post your interest in their magazine 'Lancashire'. You never know, someone else might already have that vital information you are looking for.

Hope that helps.

Best of luck with your search.
