The address of the BOLTON family in 1891 was 114 Franklin Street.

Three burials in the unconsecrated section of the general Cemetery, Sharrow:

J12 19 Dec 1886 22 Dec 1886 Beatrice Bolton 17m D. of James Bolton, cutler 114 Franklin Street
J12 04 Feb 1882 08 Feb 1882 Enos H. Bolton 4 Son of James Bolton, cutler 114 Franklin Street
J12 11 Aug 1888 14 Aug 1888 Herbert Graham Bolton 6m Son of James Bolton, cutler 114 Franklin Street
[grave/date of death/date of burial/name/age/description/address]

Although these three are buried in one grave there are also 13 other burials in it, many different surnames, which looks like a public grave.

Any clue as to where George Lawrence fits in? Older ot younger than Winifred? There's a George Herbert Lawrence born in Sheffield in 1888.

George I believe is older than Winifred. I was told he was a cousin or second cousin.

There are a few possibilities for George in Sheffield but it's difficult to connect them to Winifred without more information. Do you have Winifred's birth certificate because may give us some more clues

George Herbert Laurence born 5/10/1988 he was killed in factory during the war and died 12 or 13/12 1940.
