Hi Gerry,
Thankyou so much for your offer.
Another lister told me that all the remains were removed from Holy Trinity to Tongue cemetery in Bolton, as they made a road or something through the churchyard.
I haven't found out yet whether they are there or not.
It was such a dissapointment as I thought I at last had an ancestors grave to visit.
I have read so many films at the LDS chasing ancestors around .William Driver was originally from Morton Banks, Bingley then he moved to Keighley , his first wife my grt , grt grandmother died and was buried Bingley then he moved the whole family to Bolton, Lancs.William and his second wife died and were buried there but the children of William and his first wife some married in Bolton then moved on to Manchester, where some more married, then Birkenhead where more married and were born and buried, then Hull where my father grew up.
So you can understand how excited I was to find some were buried in Bolton.
Thanks again,
Regards , Sarah Garland , B.C. Canada
