The 2 St. Peters Cemeteries on Staten Island are the same cemeteries and should be merged. I have submitted photos for both cemeteries and they are the same one.

Please merge these cemeteries:

Gouge Cemetery at Cub Creek
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi...Scnty=1711&

Malone Gouge Cemetery
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi...Scnty=1711&

It has been confirmed that these cemeteries are the same. Both names are correct, so one should be an AKA. So far, the other Gouge cemeteries in Mitchell County, NC, have been determined to be separate cemeteries, so please don't include them in this merge.


Please delete this empty Cemetery:

Gouge Cemetery
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi...Scnty=1711&

Thank you.

Cathedral Cemetery of Lancaster is on St Peters Road, LA1 3EE
54.047117 -2.794292
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&CRid=2265975

Might be worth renaming Poulton to Morecambe Cemetery as the sign shows. Both, adjacent church and this cemetery have burial plots.
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi...;CScntry=5&


Torrisholme Cemetery is on Westgate, Morecambe LA3 3LN
54.0638980 -2.840980
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi...20Cemetery&

Corney, St John the Baptist churchyard is more accurately LA19 5TX 54.309689 -3.365711

Bukowinian St John Orthodox Cemetery
Please add AKA Saint John Ukrainian Greek Orthodox Cemetery
(I created the cemetery with the name on the gate - that 'St' is not searchable.
If that still does not meet Find A Grave's requirements, please change it)

Saint George Ukrainian Orthodox Cemetery
Add map: 45.44575,-73.68478

Thank you
