Still having difficulty in locating where James died and what year.
Many are similar with his birth year and living in similar areas. Jane is also difficult as are his children - see individual notes regarding them.
Suspect the whole family may have immigrated somewhere as cannot seem to find details regarding any of them after the child Jean was born in 1918.
Possible death for James McGrath, 1951 March Qtr, Lancaster Lancashire, Vol 10c Page 986 - Aged 75 (1876) - this is incorrect.
