Rebecca Report 15 Jan 2013 18:33

I started looking into my family history about a year ago and with the help of some very kind people I was able to get back to my great, great, great grandad.
Sadly my uncle passed away this week but because of the family history we thought it might be nice to bury him with my great, great, great grandad as we found his grave. Due to it being the 1800s, his name on the grave is 'Harrocks' instead of 'Horrocks.' I think that it is a simple spelling error but I could be completely wrong.
We're currently arguing with the priest at the moment because he will only let us bury my uncle with solid proof that we're related to George.
I've spent a lot of time looking through censuses but I seem to struggle when we get up to George. I'll post what I have from my uncle up to George:

Alexander Horrocks - 23/02/1946-10/01/2013
Son of:
Harry Hardman Horrocks - 04/03/1913-02/06/1983 & Winifred Keenan 01/03/1914-16/08/1989
Son of:
Daniel Horrocks 1873-1933 & Elizabeth Hardman 1808-?
Son of:
James Horrocks 1831-? & Ellen ? 1830-1886
Son of:
George Horrocks 1806-1877 & Ellen Aughton 1808-?

I would be so grateful if anyone could offer me help with this, it would mean a lot to me and my whole family.
