Date and place of burial.
Not known
Buried 2nd Jan 1871 St Nicholas, Newchurch in Rossendale Lara again!

Details of will / administration of their estate - if applicable
Now Lara's found the date of death it turns out his was proved at Lancaster by John Hargreaves Law of Newchurch 25 Feb 1871, effects under £300, hope to send for it (and that of his sister Grace who I'm hoping that as a childless widow will have left little bequests to various relations)
The will arrived - it was executed by his friend John Hargreaves Law, he had left everything to be divided equally between his 6 surviving children John (my ancestor), Joseph James, Henry, Mary & Elizabeth Jane.

Memorial inscription - if any
Not known
But I now know thanks tolLara he shares his grave with his parents and wife
"Also Joseph Kershaw who died Decr./39th 1870 aged 66 years" Fresh news from Lara again, see below for the full transcript from the MI she found for me.

Link to father John Kershaw
Link to mother Grace Edmonson
Link to wife Mary Pickup
No link yet to his son Robert Kershaw as the "Take one great grandparent" is locked, he was born 1869, married Rachel Annie Burnip and died in Nelson Lancs in 1940

Yes Jay, thanks - I know I ought to buy a cert but it'll have to wait until funds allow.

Lancs OPC has loads of burials, he's not buried in at St Nicholas Newchurch in Rossendale 1871 so it's likely to be the 1864 one, but they haven't covered burials for that date yet. One to go on my birthday list I think.

Gosh Lara! Thankyou so much! Two generations at once -John & Grace were his parents, that's brilliant.

Now thanks to you I know his parents' ages at death I've been able to push the Kershaws back another generation
