We need the burial record for Bernard Wooley.  His children were christened at St Phillips, Salford, but burial records for 1919 can't be found.

Bernard Wooley is buried at St Joseph's Moston. St Patrick's Plot in a common grave 668.  This would have had inscriptions of the names of the people buried there, though this may now be eroded. Another has been snapped off by tree growth. Credit Chris Harley.
