    Default sutton st george macclesfield

    I have two relatives buried at sutton st george, I know this to be their definate resting place but when i went in to macclesfield to see the church it has been turned into an office and no graves exist also there are no MI records at the library. Can any one help in locating records or know the right person to ask.

    How hurtful this must be to people everywhere when this has happened. A simple courtesy of a plaque ( signage of some form) informing of ...what was, & where it now is,.....would surely be an advantage not a hindrance to Councils or Parishes or whatevers.

    Just an opinion from someone far removed but wishing she wasn't.

    Hi there
    According to Genuki the Burial records for Sutton St Geirge from 1834 to 1937 have been deposited at Cheshire Record Office.
