In partnership with the Manchester & Lancashire Family History Society, FOAM are engaging in a project to research the gravestones in the park.

Here are the documents and ideas proposed by John Marsden from M&LFHS necessary to start you on your journey of discovery.

We will liaise regularly to share advice and knowledge of genealogy study.
