FAMILIES who think the relatives are buried in Darwen’s Western Cemetery can search for their final resting place on Saturday July 13.

The historic burial ground will host a 'Find A Grave Day' from 10.30am to 1pm.

It si organised by the Friends of Darwen Cemetery.

Residents and visitors can arrive on the day to try to discover the grave of long-lost relatives buried there

It’s a free event but donations would be welcome.

Friends group chair and local historian Tony Foster said: "We ask for as much detail as possible to help find a grave.

"Name, date of death and other relatives that could be interred in family graves would be useful. If you can supply detail in advance it would be helpful.”

Details of the event can be found on the group's Facebook page and at its website. www.darwencemetery.org.uk
