John Parry in Weaste Cemetery, Salford

 
'IN MEMORY OF

OF MANCHESTER,
AN EARLY DIRECTOR OF THE
MECHANICS INSTITUTE IN THE CITY,
AN ARDENT STUDENT AND WORKER
IN THE CAUSE OF SCIENCE.
 
HE DIED 27TH JANUARY 1866, AGED 66.'
 
Parry had a common name, which makes it difficult to pinpoint references to him, but all the same he doesn't appear to have published anything.
