Re: Jane Brough, burial

A bit of detective work. I looked up the baptism to see if there was an address. There was - McKee Street. Then started thinking about where someone living around there would bury a child. St Mary's Cemetery is down the road. I should have looked it up on the transcript site I mentioned in my post b...

Re: MARGARET (OWEN) WILLIAMS

I agree this could have been a flat above one in a row of what might have been shops. If it is in this row it had disappeared by at least the 1950s. You can see this row on a c1927 map to the right of the Free Church. No numbers on these maps until the 1950s unfortunately. The 1950s map shows the Fr...

Re: MARGARET (OWEN) WILLIAMS

I don't have access at the moment myself but have you tried the Liverpool Electoral Registers on Ancestry? (also available elsewhere) Kelly's 1938 Directory for Liverpool is also online.

Re: Find My Past - Liverpool Records

The CE and RC parish records appear to be similar in content to Ancestry. I didn't have time to look at the Non-Conformist records. What is really useful is the Workhouse search. These record images have been available for some time on Family Search but without a search facility so this new search m...

Find My Past - Liverpool Records

Irish Genealogy News has brought my attention to new Liverpool records on Find My Past. I haven't been able to check these out yet to look at those records that are not already available on Ancestry:-

Re: Back Again

The 1939 Register might be a good starting point it's available on both Ancestry and Find My Past. You should be able to find some known ancestors on there with it being relatively recent. Older ancestors on the 1939 Register should appear on the 1911 census. Using the date of births on the 1939 Reg...

Re: I can`t find information on Jonathan Smith circa 1840

There are workhouse records on Family Search but they haven't been indexed yet so they are hard work at the moment. I think Ancestry may be adding them in the future. Liverpool workhouse links here:-

Re: I can`t find information on Jonathan Smith circa 1840

One of the problems with this name is it could be shortened to John Smith, a very common name. The problem with this sort of name is proving with any certainty which one is your man in the records. I usually look to the USA when people disappear but nothing coming up there. It's more difficult when ...

Re: Search for family of WW2 RAF Gunner - plane shot down over Belgium

Gravestones are not usually allowed on public graves but it may be possible to get a flat plaque placed on the site of his grave. This type of plaque was placed on a public grave at Kirkdale Cemetery in 2015 for William Connolly VC.

Re: Search for family of WW2 RAF Gunner - plane shot down over Belgium

Hi Paul, It looks like he was staying in a hostel towards the end of his life. There was a homeless hostel in Field Lane Fazakerley and this hostel is referred to in the Liverpool Echo news story you mentioned. It was replaced in 2012 by a new facility. This hostel was not connected to the hospital....

Re: Forum

At the moment more people visit the forum for the resources than post enquiries. Perhaps the reduction in posts could have something to do with the online availability of local records? Ancestry and Family Search have great coverage now so there is maybe less interest in local archives? I've often l...

Re: I hope it is this area. They had their children here.

That seems a bit old but it is possible. Your George Cowley doesn't seem to be in the directories. The town was much smaller back then but the directories still left out a lot of people. The one in Sparling Street that appears in directories was a tailor.
