I am trying to find out where James binns is buried. He was born in Halifax West Yorkshire in 1849. He died there on 24th Jan. 1918. His wife was called Emily but not sure when she died.If anyone has access to burial records I would appreciate it if you could have a look for me.
Thank you

Can find the probate but not a matching death?

Name: James Binns
Probate Date: 25 Feb 1918

Death Place: Yorkshire, England
Registry: Wakefield

Lived 2 Castlefield Drive Rastrick, Brighouse.
Admin to Charley Binns, sub-postmaster.

ADDED:

This is the death for that probate:

So, much older than stated in your opening post.

Nothing coming up in the West Yorkshire burials for that one.

Francesca, could you check your facts about date of birth and then I'll look again.

This is likely Emily's death:

England & Wales, Death Index, 1916-2006
Name: Emily Binns
Birth Date: abt 1851
Date of Registration: Jan-Feb-Mar 1917
Age at Death: 66
Registration district: Halifax
Inferred County: Yorkshire West Riding
Volume: 9a

Can't see a burial for her, either. Have also checked newspaper archives in case there was a family notice, sadly not.
