Please can anyone help with information regarding the McGregor Family of Everton who are buried in the Church yard?
Alexander MacGregor died at his home near Manchester on the 6th December 1828 aged fifty-six years, & was buried in a large family plot in the churchyard of St. George?s at Everton. The grave originally had a double tombstone, but when visiting St. George?s in December 2007, all the stones had been removed from the graves & laid in a paved area around the church. Only the right hand stone was found, consequently only half the inscription, which was obscured by tarmac:-
ED 6TH DECEMBER 1828
UST ED 7TH JANUARY 1842
IED 26TH APRIL 1842
RN 8TH ARCH 1845 DIED 19TH MARCH 1846
GREGOR, WHO DIED 18TH OCTOBER 1855
HELEN MCGREGOR, DIED 18TH JUNE 1863
Can anybody help with the full monument inscription or tell me what may have happened to the other half of the stone?
Walter Fergus McGregor was one Of Alexander McGregor's sons & I believe was a church warden at St. Georges & one of the Directors of Vauxhall Foundry. When he died, his fellow employees had some sort of monument put inside the church & I believe there may have been a stained glass window as well, but I understand all the original windows, as well as the body of the church itself destroyed in the war? I have not seen the inside of the church from but photos I?ve seen on the internet, it looks fantastic. Does anybody have any information on the original stained glass windows or on Walter Fergus & his monument?
