If you do not locate your ancestor in the list of Ancoats chapelry links and in Manchester Cathedral links listed above, be certain before you research in any other Lancashire parish, you include a thorough search all of Manchester City's attached chapelries (over 150 of them)! Unfortunately, Manchester Cathedral (the parish) is England's largest parish; thus each chapelry's baptism, marriage and burial registers (where extant) must be searched.
