  1. Hi Eleanor, right back to my early teenage days I can remember my Dad telling me about this grave (he was a local undertaker) and it has always been a strange topic of interest for me!

    I have done loads of research on this topic and this is the best we can come up with yet.

    Hopefully someone can genuinely enlighten us us!?

  2. He could probably tell some good stories too. It’s interesting how the old stories like this stick in the imagination. Have you passed them on to the kids.

  3. Matthew’s burial record on the register actually says “Halsall” while his wifes inscription at the church says “Hassal”. I’ve never found a matching baptism for Matthew (born about 1800) and it could be that they came from England.

  4. An old yarn, as they were so afraid they opened it up 4 years later to bury his wife Margaret Hassal with him.lol
