As Joseph Locker married at St. James church Broughton, it might be worth contacting the church to see if they carried out his funeral at Weaste. AS St James, Broughton doesn't have a burial ground/grave yard but might have carried out any funeral arrangements?
Marriage: 4 Aug 1912 St James, Broughton, Lancashire, England Joseph Locker - 26, Packer, Bachelor, 46 Warwick St. Charlotte Charnley - 28, Tailoress, Spinster, 50 Grosvenor St. Groom's Father: William Locker, (deceased), Wire Weaver Bride's Father: Giles Richardson Charnley, Tailor Witness: W. Charnley; D. Charnley Married by Banns by: Basil I. Morgan, Curate Notes: Bride's father's name corrected from Charles Charnley on Aug. 7th 1912.
Thanks Ben, Joseph Locker is named on the Memorial for St Clements and St Matthias, so I thought it is most likely his funeral service was held at St Clements. Apperently the Church Service Books are in Central Library, which I have no way of visiting. I've paid for the Weaste Cemetery record and will let you know what I find. Tim
