No worries Kris ,just check if Mel has any because I went down a couple of weeks ago and took a couple,but it was snowing so it was not easy to get clear photos.
Will get them next time the weather is fine.

I don't have any Simpson stones to add for St Peters. I couldn't add the table tombs David as I couldn't make out the wording. You'd think the snow would have melted of them by now! :wink:

Could you send me copies of any that you take down there please David? always handy for the site.

Much appreciated David, thanks for your help!!

Have just spent a couple of hours in St Peters and I think I have checked every legible grave.I have only found one Simpson in the whole place and that is a Maria Simpson not on your list died 1845 aged 10.
I took a photo of that one.I also unearthed ,literally, quite a lot of Sutcliffes which am sure will please Mel.I will start sending them to Mel if she is around.
Problem with St Peters is that it is an old graveyard and many of the monuments are laid flat and get buried under grass and leaves etc and gradually start to disappear.Also many are very worn and very difficult to read.
Have you any idea Kris where your Simpsons may be in St Peters?

Thanks for looking David. Unfortunately I don’t know where the graves are located, it’s quite possible that they do not exist anymore or as you say they might have fallen over….

I will have a look at Maria Simpson, she could be connected!!

Post subject: 

Well I sent them all before I went to the pub Mel.I hope they are not stuck in the ethernet somewhere down the M6.
Got some great photos tonight off a guy who lives next to Haggate graveyard on Chapel Row.
He took a series of photos as they were demolishing Haggate Chapel,I will scan them and forward later Mel.
