Pauline in New Zealand has contacted us with the following query.

I am looking for a family who may have been buried in the Briercliffe area. In the 1911 census they were farming Broad Bank Farm, Briercliffe. My g.g. aunt was Elizabeth Coates, aged 65, born in Yorkshire in 1911 census. Elizabeth Coates had a daughter Annie, and son in law Amos Smith, and a granddaughter Elizabeth Isabella Smith. Elizabeth Isabella Smith married Lee Gregson in 1930 at St James, Briercliffe so it seems the family stayed in the Briercliffe area and Elizabeth Coates was buried there. I would appreciate any help or suggestions of places to look.
Many thanks.

Hi Dan, welcome to the forum and thanks for the response.

I'll send Pauline an email just in case she is no longer following this topic.

Hi Dan, Pauline has asked me to send you her email address - she is not a forum user.

Unless you are adding them to the forum, I'm afraid you need to email them to me
