Re: Kirkdale cemetery headstones

It is not just council cemeteries. My mother was commemorated on a kerb stone at a family grave in a large local churchyard. When the church decided to make it easier for mowing, all kerbs were removed, inscribed or not. I was told they were buried elsewhere in the grounds and that a notice had been...

Re: Photo wanted: Rock Mount, Aigburth

Thanks for keeping those fingers busy, as well as xxxed. As you say, I have come across those references, but the map is a gem, being more detailed than others I’ve found.

Photo wanted: Rock Mount, Aigburth

For a long time I have been trying to find a photo of a house which stood in St Anne's Road, Aigburth, numbered 9, and named as Rock Mount when in private hands. Some time after 1922 it was used as a preliminary training school for Sefton General Hospital, and as a nurses' home. By 1978 it had close...

Early photogapher in Southport: Henry Sampson

Among some family photographs I found a 'carte de visite' with the name of Henry Sampson, photographer, Southport on the reverse. The image is an outdoor scene of a crowd of people, almost certainly a wedding group, but with 12 or possibly more dressed as brides, in white, with veils. They, with for...

Re: Walter Carr b 1876

There is a FreeBmd entry for Jane Carr, Dec qr 1910, WD , 8b, p.892, but no reference to Carr. Only three names show when looking for the ‘other half’.

Medrington, photographer, Bold Street

I have a family photo taken by Medringtons Ltd, 29 Bold Street, Liverpool. Is there anyone who can tell me when they went out of business, as that would help in working out who the subjects might be.
Thanks

Re: Jack Payne No1551853 Gunner

SWB can also mean Silver War Badge, issued in WW1 to men invalided out of the service after wounds or illness. I do not know if the same applied in WW2.

Re: Fontenoy St

Pte. J.R. Ballard seems to have been awarded the Military Medal, but I have not yet found details of this award. He also earned the 1915 Star, British War and Victory Medals. He was killed in action on the Somme on 16 Aug. 1916 and is recorded with many, many others on the Thiepval Memorial to the M...

The area on that map could not be described as Grassendale. I shall have a rummage tomorrow for #21a.

Re: MARGARET (OWEN) WILLIAMS

The numbering of Aigburth Road originally started at the Cressington Park gates and increased towards Dingle, but changed at some point which I can’t trace.
29a sounds like a flat over a shop, probably between Cressington and Grassendale Road.

Re: 1841 Census

Sorry for delay.
'My' Thomas was born in 1783, in Liverpool. He married Rebecca Grant in 1806 and died in 1848.
