Manchester City Council Burial Records

#1
http://www.manchester.gov.uk/info/200032/deaths_funerals_and_cremations/1064/burial_records

The above site has been available for some time. It has always been possible to search the index free of charge. If you wanted to see the full details you would have to buy credits in order to do so. This still applies but it is now possible for those lucky enough to be able to visit Manchester Central Library, to view all of the information free of charge. You will need to visit the Local Studies Unit and ask a member of staff about the availability of the information.

This new service has been launched very "quietly"

Hello Karen,

Thank you for your comment.

If you are looking for Salford burials, the Manchester site may be of no use.

For burials in Salford Council cemeteries you will need to look at

http://www.salford.gov.uk/gravesearch.htm

For Church burials the Manchester Library Church registers list may help

http://www.manchester.gov.uk/site/scripts/documents_info.php?documentID=464


and more specifically

http://www.manchester.gov.uk/info/448/archives_and_local_studies/464/church_register_list/33

and you may need to search Pendleton, Pendlebury, Broughton, Charlestown, Hope, Paddington and Lower Broughton and maybe even Eccles , St Mary.

Hi Gerald
I emailed them and finally the mystery is solved - here is the return email, I have omitted the garb at the beginning -

The local Registrar would make returns to the General Regiser Office for England and Wales. The copy of the marriage certificate you ordered comes from ther General Register Office.

I have checked our marriage register for this church and it appears that the name was originally written as "Sarah Ann Firth" in black pen. However at a later date somebody (in blue pen) has written "Jane" over "Ann". It appears there must have been a mistake and this has been altered by somebody at the church at a later date.

I hope this answers your question.

Yours sincerely
