Hi,
I have recently been looking at some grave details of my husbands grandparents and great aunts and one of them comes up with the address that she died at as being Winwick County Mental Hospital in Warrington. Now we know she isn't buried there as she is in the plot with the others. She was only 37 when she died in 1935 and I was wondering if there are any records anywhere of Winwick that we would be able to look at to trace as to why she was in there in the first place, and also why she died so young?
Many thanks for any help anyone is able to offer.

Hi Mel...i couldnt find any burial but i am not an expert...plenty on here who might.

Bit morbid but it maybe worth considering that she was cremated:confused:

Apologies if you know for DEFFO that she was buried.

Hi

Have you checked the family plot where she is buried, there may be an inscription etc..

In the meantime there is a Sherratt project hoping to connect all Sherratt's, there is also a contact on the home page. They may be able to help.
