Family History

 

S. Margaret’s has a large graveyard which was closed in the 1960s though there were few burials in the 1900s as it was near to full. The Graveyard is now maintained by Oldham M.B.C.

Records of baptisms, marriages and burials are stored in the Diocesan Archives in Manchester and can be viewed by contacting them. Each year we take part in the national Heritage Open Days during which the registers are available in church.

Many of the graves have been grassed over and only a few now remain. The Oldham Family History Centre on Union Street, Oldham, have a book of grave inscriptions which was made before the works in the churchyard were undertaken.
