John Pask & Ellen CAIN from Rochdale, Lancashire

In the GOONS mailing list, the website was mentioned. From there I located a John & Ellen Pask who are buried in Rochdale Cemetery Lancashire

Pask, Ellen, d. 24 Aug 1930, age: 75yrs, w/o John
Pask, John, d. 25 Jan 1936, age: 77yrs, h/o Ellen

This was confirmed in the GRO death index:
1930/Q3 PASK, Ellen Rochdale 8e 49 age 75
1936/Q1 PASK, John Rochdale 8e 63 age 77

I also found in the marriage index
1880/Q2 PASK, John Rochdale 8c 87 which was cross-referenced to Ellen CAIN.

In the 1891 census (LANRG12_3142_11_15), I found them living at 5 Beach Street, Elton, Bury, Lancashire with a daughter May. John was a Horsekeeper born in Heddington [Kedington], Suffolk. From there I established that he was John PASK. He was baptized on 11 July 1858 in Kedington, Suffolk. He was the son of Joseph PASK and Caroline BOWYER.

I will follow up on this when time permits.
