I think the main cemetery at this time would have been Crumpsall - opened in the
early 1880s. It is located in North Manchester and still in use. I am also
interested in obtaining a photo of a grave >from here - had it and lost it,
so your request is also relevant to me.
There is actually a record of burials kept in the Manchester Central Library.
I remember consulting it a number of years ago. You should do likewise if you
have the chance.
