Long Description:
In the UK before the passing of the Burial Acts in the mid 19th Century, burials had to take place according to the rites of the Church of England. This meant that the deceased were buried in the churchyard of the parish in which they died unless they had not been baptised, had been excommunicated or had committed suicide. The Burial Acts of 1852-1857 enabled Burial Boards to be set up either as separate bodies or as part of the Borough Councils.

Stretford Cemetery was opened in 1885.

Date of Birth: 5/16/1843

Date of Death: 4/11/1919
