« St. Martin's Church | Main | I' PODS »

Dear Sir, I am presently researching my family name of Timperley. They were farmers of Urmston in the main . I have already received a tremendous amount of help from Bowdon Parish Church[ St Mary's]
I would be most obliged if you would offer some guidance and information as to if you have any members of the Timperley family interred or have been parishoners. The particular names I am interested in are of the Ezra Timperley Family.
Yours faithfully D.Timperley.
God bless.

Dear Sir

I too am researching my Astley ancestors who come from Sale. I live in South Africa and am unable to visit your ancient Parish. Could you direct me as to how I could find any records, birth, marriage or death of the Astley family and if you have any interred in your parish graveyard?

Yours faithfully Amanda Jephson
