I have access to funeral cards for 10 people who died between 1875 and 1901 in the Cheshire area of England.

In Dukinfield, Ashton-under-Lyne and Stalybridge.  I have taken photographs.  Some have 3 surfaces with writing and most have only one.  I am looking for suggestions of what to do with them.

You may be looking for a more sophisticated answer than this, but how about make a profile for each of the people whose funeral is featured on a card, and attach the photos?  If any of them are Halls or Williamsons, they might be relatives of mine smiley

What a great find!

Just to add to Corinne's answer, because the funeral cards will have the death date, place and age, there is plenty to create a basic profile, even without doing any additional research.

Alternatively,  you could load them to a Free Space page and they could be added to resources for the area on the relevant county page in the England Project.

Ashton under Lyne was in Lancashire and the others in Cheshire.

If a Free Space page is created for the funeral cards, we can add the link to the Cheshire and/or Lancashire county pages. Members of those county teams may be interested in helping create the profiles.

Thank all of you.  All good suggestions.  I may do it all.
