1801 Lancashire, Liverpool Census on FMP

Re: Allerton cemetery layout

Ch is another way of saying Church of England. Con, Ch, C/E, C of E refer to the same division of burials in the cemetery. R or RC is Roman Catholic. Gen or N/C is the same division.

Re: Look up for a birth in Ontario, Canada 1914

I tried to find this on Family Search without any luck I don't think it's available online. There's a lot of Canadian records available but they don't appear to be available for that location at that date.

Re: Kirkdale cemetery headstones

We had a gravestone laid flat at Allerton Cemetery. We were not informed we discovered it when an uncle visited and couldn't find it. We paid to get it put back up with a concrete base added to secure it.

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: 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...
