Hi Phil, yes i have been AWOL ;D

As to your request in a message to me

As far as i could find out for you, there is no headstone on the grave of William Mayall, but there is one on the grave next to his. Grave location/section B12, grave number 120, the surname of MOSS. This should help you locate the correct resting place of William.

I managed to find out the complete list of people buried in that grave for you.

Positionin garve.
1) Hilda Rhodes died age 30
    Buried 26th Feb 1921

2) Dorothy Mayall died age 15 months
    Buried 14th Jan 1932

3) Walter Mayall died age 6
    Buried 1st Feb 1932

4) Betty Mayall died age 71
    Buried 22nd June 1933

5) William ( you know about ) Mayall died age 49
    Buried 10th Nov 1933

By the way Hilda Rhodes was William's sister she married an Alfred  Rhodes 1918 Oldham.
Betty Mayall nee Wrigley is his mother. She Married Miles Mayall at st. Mary's Oldham 1884.

As far as i can make out Hilda Rhodes nee Mayall died at the 15 Joseph street Oldham address, this seems to be the Mayall home address back to 1891.
Also Fred Mayall, William's brother is show on the Oldham absent voters list at that address, so presume he joined up for the war, but not checked yet?
Ernest Mayall, another brother was killed 1917.

Cheers Migky, you're a star!

I've got some Mayall family follow ups I'd like to ask you but will do these by PM if I may so that this thread stays on subject.

With regards to the brothers, you are right, Fred, William, Ernest and Walter all served and all started with the Manchester's but with William going to MGC and Ernest to the Kings Liverpool before he left England.

The interesting point in the responses above is that Hilda died in 1921 whilst living at 15 Joseph St.  I've got some Oldham Chronicle clippings of memorials that Betty (my great, great grandmother) placed for Ernest and Walter - both of them refer to Alf serving abroad.  I wonder who Alfred Rhodes was serving with and whether he survived?

Thanks again Migky.

Cheers

Phil
