According to the index there is an MI for this grave, you would need to visit the archive to access this or contact the office at the general cemetery who also hold the MI's.
WOW!, thank you for the fast response. When you said that there is a MI inscription for this grave, does this mean that the headstone has been removed. I live in Manchester and a few years ago I visited City Road cemetery only to find the headstones had been removed, and the area turned into a field.
Thank you once again
I cannot be sure if this one has been removed, but a lot have.

Sounds more like the General Cemetery that you visited.......
The Anglican portion looked to have been cleared of headstones when I last visted.
That is a number of years ago now. Did the other side of the cemetery look very overgrown?

Just to say thank you to Angela and Elaine for your help. And yes Elaine I did mix the two Cemeteries up, as it was some years ago that we visited the two Cemeteries the same day.
Once again thank you.
