“These records were provided by Manchester & Lancashire Family History Society and are transcribed obituaries and narratives from newspapers and Manchester Crematorium memorial plaques.
The year range represented in these transcripts is 1818 to 2001.”*
So there you have it.
Not much else to say other than the picture is Southern Cemetery from 2010 and of course
are the memorials of those who chose not to be cremated.
Except to say that Manchester Archives has an excellent online site which also allows you to research those buried in Manchester cemeteries and those that were cremated. The search is free and then there is a charge if you want to research more details.**
