Ancestral Graves at Standish St. Wilfrid

Many Harrison and Ball ancestors are buried in the church yard at Standish St. Wilfrid. Click on the names below for the description of each grave.

This map shows approximately where each of the five graves is located.

According to the church records Henry Ball and his wife Elizabeth Ormishaw are also buried at St. Wilfrid however we have not been able to locate their grave(s). The parish office does not have records that locate the graves of people who died before 1900. There are also many other graves of people with the surname Ball but we have been unable so far to establish the family relationship.


St. Wilfrid Church is located on Market Street in the centre of Standish, a block east of the main intersection at High Street. It is about 15 minutes by car from Wigan town centre.
