    Re the marriage of Alexander Goodfellow and Sarah Driver at Manchester Cathedral, I'm not so sure about the Cathedral's parish registers being at the Archives.

    Do phone and check before you go.

    Don't bother to go to Manchester Archives. The Cathedral registers are not there.
    http://www.manchestercathedral.org/history/archives

    If you search on Ancestry for Alexander by name only you might need to scroll down a bit as there are two marriage entries. One is just a transcription of the basic details, the other is a copy of the register. That's found in the Manchester, England, Marriages and Banns, 1754-1930 (Cathedral) dataset.

    You might also be lucky with the parish registers for St James Ashton. (Marriage of John William Sunderland and Ann Ellen Goodfellow.) They're held at Tameside Local Studies and Archives Centre, but the list is set out so badly it's difficult to tell which records refer to which parish.
    https://www.tameside.gov.uk/archives...history/parish
    Scroll down to the bottom of the page for address and contact details.
    I suspect it might be quite local to you, and if so would save you £9.25 for the certificate from the GRO.

    Ancestry might also be free at the Tameside Archives. Not sure about the technicalities (I'm totally useless at techie stuff!) of being able to print out something from Ancestry at a library - you might have to take a USB stick and download stuff to that.

    Thanks for the 'local knowledge' information, loobylou.

    Not that it proves entirely 'helpful'. Louisa's birthdate on her death registration is given as 18 November 1895, which matches a previous record I found.
    There's a Louisa Simpson in the 1901 census living with parents Joseph (so far, so good) and Louisa, plus brother Walter. Walter's 6, Louisa 4.
    Birth registrations - Walter, September quarter 1894 Ashton registration district, mother's maiden name Buckley.
    Louisa, December quarter 1896 Oldham registration district, mother's maiden name Buckley.

    Marriage Joseph Simpson and Louisa Buckley, June quarter 1894, Ashton registration district.

    Everything else, down to the birth quarter, 'fits', so I can only assume that Louisa thought she was a year older than she actually was.

    Re my previous post #14 -

    1901 census
    census reference RG13/3812 folio 24 page 39
    Living 3 Sarah Street Oldham
    Joseph Simpson, head, 33, coalminer, born Hurst
    Louisa, wife, 33, Peterboro (to which has been added in different handwriting -Northants)
    Walter, son, 6, Hurst
    Louisa, daur, 4, Hollinwood

    Fast forward to 1911.
    census reference RG14/24330 SN67
    252 Higher KIng Street, Hurst, Ashton under Lyne
    William LAMBERT, head, 59, iron forge labourer, Dukinfield
    Elizabeth, wife, 58, Manchester
    Thomas, son, 18, cotton spinner, Ashton under Lyne
    William, son, 16, cloth warehouse bookkeeper, Ashton under Lyne
    Louisa SIMPSON, niece, 14, cotton card room, Hollinwood
    William Simpson, nephew, 47, cotton weaver, Ashton under Lyne
    James Lambert, son, (mar) 23, cotton spinner, Ashton under Lyne
    Annie Lambert, daur in law, (mar), 20, cotton drawing room tenter, Ashton under Lyne
    William Lambert, nephew, 5 months, Ashton under Lyne

    Meanwhile Joseph Simpson is a boarder, aged 43, coal miner hewer, born Hurst, and allegedly single, living in the household of Alice Flitcroft in Hindley.
    Census ref RG14/23025 SN153

    And thanks to FMP I've finally twigged what 'Whillese' is supposed to be - Whittlesey (which is near Peterborough), so this is Louisa in 1911.
    Census ref RG14/24664 SN335
    Living 1 Jepheys St Rochdale
    Louisa Simpson, 43, widow (sic), weaver in mill, Whillese
    Walter, son, 17, spinner in mill, Ashton
    Louisa wrote that she'd been married for 18 years, and had had three children one of whom had died. Will have to look again for the third one.

    This is going off at a tangent to prove the relationship between Louisa Simpson and William Lambert as uncle and niece in the 1911 census, though the link is actually through William's wife, Elizabeth nee Dickinson. (Lana, you will need a very large sheet of paper to draw this tree and keep track of everyone. )

    1901 census
    Census reference RG13/3800 folio 183 page12
    109 Queen Street, Hurst
    William LAMBERT, head, 49, labourer ironwork, Dukinfield
    Elizabeth, wife, 48, Hulme
    Mary, daur, 18 Ashton
    James, son, 13, Ashton
    Thomas, son, 8, Ashton
    William, son, 6, Ashton
    Eliza B Tong, visitor, 10 months, Cheshire

    1891
    Census reference RG12/3294 folio 8 page 10
    109 Queen Street, Hurst
    William LAMBERT, head, 39, forge labourer, Dukinfield
    Elizabeth, wife, 38, Hulme
    Harry, son, 12, Ashton under Lyne
    Mary, daur, 8, Ashton under Lyne
    James, son, 3, Ashton under Lyne

    1881
    Census reference RG12/3294 folio 8 page 10
    134 Alexandra Street, Ashton under Lyne
    William LAMBERT, head, 29, felt hat finisher, Dukinfield
    Elizabeth, wife, 28, Dukinfield
    Harry, son, 2, Ashton

    Marriage William Lambert and Elizabeth Dickinson December quarter 1873 Ashton registration district.
    Birth registrations Mary Lambert, March quarter 1883 and William Lambert March quarter 1895, both in Ashton under Lyne registration district, both with mother's maiden name Dickinson.


    Two birds with one stone in this census.

    1871
    Census reference RG10/4071 folio 18 page 29
    79 Queen Street, Ashton
    William SIMPSON, head, 52, cotton weaver, Bury Lancashire
    Mary H, wife, 42, Woolwich Kent
    Ellen, daur, 18,
    David, son, 15,
    John, son, 12,
    Edward, son, 10,
    William, son, 8,
    Henry, son, 6,
    Joseph Simpson, son, 4,
    Hannah, daur, 3,
    Maria, daur, 10 months,
    Elizabeth DICKINSON, boarder, 17, Manchester
    Simpson children all born Ashton

    1861
    Census reference RG10/4071 folio 18 page 29
    30 Hurst Knowl, Ashton under Lyne
    William SIMPSON, head, 42, cotton weaver, Bury Lancashire
    Mary H, wife, 32, London Middlesex
    Ellen, daur, 9,
    David, son, 5,
    John, son, 2,
    Edward, son, 1
    James DICKINSON, brother-in-law, 14, Manchester.
    Simpson children all born Ashton.

    William Simpson married Mary Hannah Dickinson, June quarter 1855, Stockport registration district.
    Birth registrations David Simpson December quarter 1855, mother's maiden name Dickenson; and Edward SImpson, March quarter 1860, mother's maiden name Dickinson, both in Ashton under Lyne registration district.

    At the moment I can't easily find Elizabeth Dickinson in the 1861 census.
    And there are possible problems with the 1851 census because much of the Manchester area pages were damaged because I was hoping to find James and Elizabeth together to prove they were brother and sister, with Mary being their elder sister.

    Going one census further back with William Simpson, father of Joseph in the 1871 census (see previous post) this is him in 1851.

    Census reference HO107/2238 folio 365 page 12
    44 Queen Street, Ashton under Lyne
    William SImpson, head, 30, (something in cotton mill, think it might be power loom weaver), Bury Lancs
    Ellen, wife, 28, Stockport Cheshire
    Elizabeth, daur, 3, Ashton under Lyne
    Hannah, daur, 2, Ashton under Lyne
    and five lodgers

    William Simpson married Ellen Grundy September quarter 1846 Stockport registration district.
    Birth registration of daughter Elizabeth Simpson, June quarter 1847 Ashton and Oldham registration district, mother's maiden name Grundy.
    It's my belief that the Ellen Simpson aged 9 in the 1861 census is the daughter of William and Ellen, but I can find no birth registration for her.

    William's wife, Ellen died aged 29, death registration June quarter Ashton under Lyne registration district.

    Default sunderland family

    hi pam in regards to information

    this is info i have :

    joseph sunderland married phyllis sunderland(hurst)

    joseph dad was called alexander sunderland and married louisa sunderland(simpson)
    had i believe six siblings two died at birth james and either may or mary, alexander died at age 34 years i believe joseph first address was 101 taunton road ashton-under-lyne i havent got my book on me at moment with info in as at friends tonight.
    alexander dad was i beleive john sunderland and his wife was anna sunderland(goodfellow), im not 100% but think a abraham sunderland was john sunderland dad but havent checked that out yet.

    Phyllis sunderland hurst)who married joseph sunderland
    her mum was called phyllis also she married edward hurst but what i can see is that phyllis hurst died when gave birth to my grandma phyllis hurst(sunderland) on 23rd july 1929.
    Phyllis who died in 1929 maiden name Jones. Edward went onto marrying i think a florence, but i havent researched much into grandma side yet as im concentrating on my dads dads side first the sunderland surname more so than the hurst surname but want to link both as want find out if my grandma had a sister do know had a brother Lenard hurst married to barbara hurst, hehas passed away now.

    joseph and phyllis had 4 children kathleen, christine, kevin and janet sunderland kathleen christine and kevin have passed away.

    Arthur sunderland was joeseph sunderlands brother i think he was born 1924 joe was born 1929 died 1984 arthur died i think either 2006 -2009 unsure if he had children or not as if had boy still another sunderland out there not just my brother so be good to know that.

    i hope what info ive given can help i will be looking myself too and dig deeper but i apreciate the help as not much understanding on census and how understand them to be honest

    I've got to concentrate on getting ready to go out at the moment so won't be able to give a more detailed reply until later this afternoon.
    In the mean time, just want to stress that it was loobylou who found the burials (and confirmed all the details about the Archives stuff), not me.

    Will 'speak' later as I've got more stuff ready but thought I ought to give you a chance to look at (even if you can't thoroughly digest it all in one go ) what I'd found so far.
