On a recent trip to Bolton, I found the following grave headstones at St. Thomas. St. Thomas is a stone's throw from St. Peter's (Bolton Le Moors):

17. In memory of Lawrence Horrocks who departed this life January 10th 1845 aged 78 years. Also of Mary his wife who departed this life December 26th 1851 aged 69 years. James the son of Lawrence and Mary Horrocks who departed this life September 13th 1836 aged 27 years.

18. In the memory of Thomas Horrocks of Halliwell who departed this life April 28th 1816 aged 80 years. Also William Oldham Horrocks son of Lawrence and Mary Horrocks of Great Bolton who departed this Life March 11th 1813 aged 7 years. Also Alice the wife of Thomas Horrocks who departed this life July 11th 1818 aged 86 years. Also Richard the son of John and Jane Horrocks of Little Bolton who died March 28th 1823 aged 1 month. Also Thomas their son who died September 16th 1842 aged 16 years 10 months. Also Martha their daughter who died April 30th 1854 aged 30 years.
