THORNBER BURIAL RECORDS IN
LANCASHIRE, ENGLAND TO 1850

Lancashire Rose

There is much work to do on the burials as they are not indexed by the IGI.  However, the following burials have been collected for East Lancashire.

Burials from St. Bartholomew's at Colne are taken from the published transcripts to 1812 then from the microfiche at Colne Library up to1841.   The record for Winewall Inghamite Chapel is from Colne Public Library.

Transcripts of the registers for Altham, Accrington and Church Kirk are available in the public library at Accrington as follows:

Accrington St. James, 1766 to 1812.
Accrington St. James, Baptisms, 1813 to 1842
Accrington St. James, Marriages 1813 to 1837.
Altham St. James, 1696 to 1812 (LPRS)
Altham St. James, Baptisms from 1813 to 1987.
Altham St. James Marriages from 1813 to 1990
Altham St. James, Burials from 1813 to 1990
Church Kirk, from 1747 to 1812 and 1813 to 1851. (The period 1600 to 1747 is covered in LPRS volume 102.)

For St. Peter's at Burnley the records are from the Lancashire Parish Register Society Volumes from 1562 to 1653 and 1653 to 1690 then from the film of the register at Burnley Library from 1778 to 1851.

For Blackburn I am grateful to Merle Thornber in Australia for the following records.

A.  Blackburn St. Mary the Virgin 1790 to 1814 from BTs.
B.  Blackburn St. Mary the Virgin 1792-1812 and 1813-1843 from film of register
C.  Blackburn St. Mary the Virgin 1711 to 1779, from film of register
D.  Blackburn St. Pauls from 1793 to 1859 and 1872 to 1894
E.  Blackburn St. Mary, burials 1813-1840 and 1858-1863.

Bernard Steele provided me with the records marked with an asterisk from the Nonconformist section of Blackburn Cemetery and from the Hindley register.

Lancashire County Record Office now has transcripts in alphabetical order of Blackburn St. Mary burials from 1680 to 1745 from which the one Thornber record has been abstracted.

A transcript of the burial register for Habergham Eaves All Saints for 1850 to 1872 can be found at Burnley Library.

Haggate Baptist chapel has records of burials from 1786 to 1794 then from 1811 to 1857 at Burnley Library.
