Deceasedonline.com adds Bolton's Westhoughton cemetery records

The following is a notice from deceasedonline.com

Burial records for the 6th of Bolton Council's 7 cemeteries are now available.

Westhoughton Cemetery dates back to 1858 and includes many interesting burials and memorials

Its most famous feature is the memorial to the Pretoria Pit (Hulton) disaster of December 1910

This was Britain's 3rd worst ever mining disaster when an underground explosion claimed the lives of 344 miners, most local to the area, leaving many families devastated

The data for Westhoughton comprises:

Details of all graves indicating those buried in each grave

Scans of all burial registers

Cemetery maps indicating grave locations
