Canal worker's gravestone found in garden

An appeal has been made to locate the descendants of a man who worked on the Manchester Ship Canal, whose gravestone was found buried in a Ribbleton house's back garden. The stone, commemorating Joseph Rose Tozer, who died in 1869, was found by Andrew Slater whilst working in his garden.
