I have mislaid my great grandmother
My great grandmother LETTY WHITEHEAD died in 1963 in a nursing home in Rusholme age 90. She had previously lived locally. We had always assumed that she was buried at Southern Cemetery on Barlow Moor Road where most of the family - including her husband - were also buried. This turns out not to be the case. The trouble is there's now no one left alive who would have attended her funeral. We have searched for her in all the cemeteries on Manchester Council's burial index, at Manchester Crematorium, at Stockport Crematorium and the municipal cemeteries in the Stockport area, ditto Altrincham but with no luck. She has to have been buried or cremated so there has to be a record somewhere. Does anyone have any idea where to look? She won't have left the Greater Manchester area. Thanks
James Nuttall & Ann Adshead
James Nuttall & Ann Adshead married at Manchester Cathedral in 1867. (James was born 1839/1840 to John and his 1st wife; Ann was born 1842/1844 to Thomas and Eliza). They lived initially in Ancoats (their eldest child was baptised at St Jude) and then in Hulme. As far as I know, James and Ann had 6 children: Ann baptised 1868, Emma born 1870/1871, Letitia known as Letty born 1872, James H born 1875/76, Arthur born 1877/78 and Thomas born 1881/82. As a young man, James worked as a dyer but, by the time he married, he was working as a carter or lurryman. He died in 1888 after a brief spell in the workhouse at Withington (Chorlton Union) and is buried at Southern Cemetery. After James's death, the family fell on hard (or perhaps harder) times and have proved difficult to trace. James's widow and their youngest son were in the same workhouse between 1890 & 1893. Ann returned there in 1905 and stayed until 1917. She died in 1920 in what would now be Withington Hospital but would probably then have still been the workhouse infirmary. I know that their daughter EMMA married George William Caffrey in 1888 and, by the turn of the century, was living with him and 4 or 5 children in Salford. But I can't find her or her family after 1901 although Letty's children remembered meeting her. LETTY (my great grandmother) married William Whitehead in 1891. ANN married someone who worked in the haulage industry & was certainly alive during WW1. In 1911, THOMAS was working as a machine fitter's labourer and living with his sister Letty. But as for the other 2 sons - JAMES H and ARTHUR - I don't even know what they did when they left school. Is anyone researching this family? Does anyone know what happened to Letty's brothers and sisters, particularly Emma Caffrey? Thanks

Seddon family from Manchester area
I am looking for details of John Seddon (b abt 1840, Manchester) and his family. He had 3 sons - William (b 1862), James (b 1863) and Arthur (b 1870) plus 2 daughters - Martha (b 1867) and Mary Ellen (b 1874). His wife was Caroline Richards (b abt 1841). According to the 1881 census, John was a plasterer and both sons were apprentice plasterers. After that, the family seems to disappear. Anyone know what happened to them? The only one I can trace with any certainty is Mary Ellen, who was my g-grandmother.
I am tracing the Downing family. There were 6 children. I have dates from 1894 to 1966. If any one knows the Price family or McDougall family that also would be great.

red mail Wragg Family
Mary Wragg(1806-1887)a widow, was housekeeper and later married John Lawton,(1792-1867) builder of Rosamund Terrace,off Boundary Lane, Hulme. His house and builder's yard can be clearly seen on the Godfrey map of 1844. Mary had one child from her marriage to George Wragg (1809-1833. Their son, George Wragg was born in Bolsover a month before his father died. After George Wragg, born 1833, married Hannah Paulson in 1857 the couple lived at 13 Warde St, Hulme. A son John Paulson Wragg & a daughter Mary Ada were born and both christened at Holy Trinity Church.In 1862 another son George was born at Hannah's home in Nottinghamshire and a short time later on August 16th Hannah and the three children left from Liverpool for the USA on The Great Eastern. I am guessing George Wragg sr. had gone on before. The strange thing is that after their departure for the New World they took the name Greaves, all the family kept their original first names apart from George who became Thomas Greaves, the same name as his maternal grandfather! It seems that George was running away from something by hiding his identity but I cannot find out the reason. Any help in solving this family mystery would be appreciated.
