I have a couple of 'missing' burials in village areas of about 1800.

1. Sarah Massey buried 1775 at St Johns, Knutsford, wife of Richard Massey . farmer at Ollerton, Knutsford born 1736,
Richard died? -----alive 1775

2., John Massey of Tabley buried 1765, at St Mary -Rostherne,
wife Sarah, died ? ------------ (last child born 1745),

I know that the FSO are not so complete on burials, and wondered if any other sites were?

Thank you

Better to add to existing thread Margaret otherwise people will search what's already been looked at. You can find previous threads by clicking on "My Threads" under "Tools" in menu on left of page.

I think there are more recent ones than this one but for eg
