Thanks Gloria. I'll see if I can find anything at some of the other churchyards.

Do you have Rawlinsons?

I don't, but M-in-L was a Rawlinson. Someone did a family tree years back of descendants of William Rawlinson 1813-1908. They put an ad in Burnley Express asking for any relatives to get in touch, which she did and got a family tree, all done back to 1813. He was a cotton manufacturer of Rake Head Burnley.
