Does anyone know where Bostick Park Rd might have been? It may of course be a transcribing error, but it appears on the burial of Ann Tabron (4th Aug 1896 - St Cuthberts) on the Lancs OPC site.

Strange one. I googled it and came across this

http://www.derektabron.uwclub.net/a1.htm

The information on here suggests they didn't stray far from Chase Heys & High Park. I've looked at old maps and can't see Bostick Park Rd so i would guess its a mistake.

Just checked the 1895 street directory also, no such place.

Could it be a house/cottage called Bostick on Park Road?

Thanks everyone. The problem has been sorted. It was a poor transcription of '130 High Park Rd'!!!!!
