    Unhappy WILSON burials Wigan 1938 & 1948

    I'm trying to locate the burials of my great grandparents:-
    JANE ELLEN WILSON (BERRY) 15 Mar 1876 - 26 May 1938 of 42 Chadwick St., Poolstock.
    JAMES WILSON 15 Feb 1873 - Q3 1948 last known address was Blacksmiths Arms, 41 Miry Lane, in 1939 living with daughter and son-in-law. Daughter was still there in 1947 when she re-married after death of first husband.
    Their burials are not showing in Wigan Cemeteries' transcriptions on WiganWorld.

    Any advice/help in finding them would be much appreciated. TIA
    Malcolm.

    PS: I have sent for James' death cert., but don't know when it'll arrive.

    EDIT: JUST NOTICED on LOPC father is noted as deceased on daughter's 1947 marriage. So I may have wasted my money on death cert. but the age is right and I didn't notice another JW dying in Wigan between '39 and '48.

    EDIT: THERE IS another one:- Q1 1947 but the age is given as 68, 6yrs out by my reckoning.

    Correction: Should be The Platelayer's Arms,

    Sorry! Been awake most of the night, not thinking straight.

    I haven't wasted my money! It was the right one.
    He died 15 September 1948 address 25 Primrose Hill, daughter in attendance.
    So I don't know what the LOPC marriage transcription is about. I'll have to send for that cert. now.

    Still no closer to finding the burials.

    Could they have been buried with their husbands? People sometimes bought 2 plots when the first death in a couple happened.

    They were married to each other. Just the one marriage 5 Sep 1898. Neither name shows up for me.
    I have found other family members buried in the same grave but each one shows up in individual search, as well as showing all if one clicks on plot number.

    UPDATE:
    Received the marriage cert. and it does indeed say Alice's father is deceased as was her groom's.
    Curious, maybe the vicar got carried away and thought both fathers were deceased as it was a second marriage for both of them after bereavement.
