Lancashire Parish Registers

For those of you researching Lancashire and its local family's,here is an interesting article. It has been taken out of the book "Memorials of old Lancashire" VOll 11 published in 1909. The family name Hartley was of interest to me and it was noted to be a popular family surname for Colne, Colne's most famous Hartley was Wallace Hartley who went down on the Titanic while still entertaining the remaining Passengers.Wallace Hartley was the violinist and Band Master on the Titanic.
