    St helens cemetry records

    By billb,
    Trying to trace burial records for Ralph Boardman who lived in Windle ( Windle Smythies to be exact) but died sometime between 1851 and 1861. Maybe a possibility that he was buried in local cemetry. Can anyone tell me if burials in St Helens cemetry near Windle go back that far ? If they do, are there any records available in some location to assist in the search ? Any help from whatever source would be greatly appreciated Many Thanks in advance

    By judyguest,
    I am tracing my family tree and just found out I had an uncle called James Johnson Green dob 05/02/1909 died 1997, His parents were James and Martha Green from 3 Grosvenor Road. My father ws Frederick Baxter Green born 05/11/1920 and died in 22/04/1976. My uncle was never mentioned so can anyone help. I have tried to get his death cert but the GRO will not supply as only have register number a40c and entry number 131 and apparently I need vol and page. As both my parents are deceased I would like to sort out this piece of the jigsaw and may also find I have living relatives. Any ideas!!

    Who Remembers

    By halj,
    Just doing a spot of de-cluttering when I found a copy of the Clarendon Chronicle. I used to have most of them but this one is headed the last "Chron". It is dated August 1989. The editor was Dave Ellis and is full of interesting articles about the folk of Gerrards Bridge. Rather than throw it away if anyone is interested in it please contact me.

    Lancashire Militia

    By jill,
    I thought these names I found on a Lancashire militia roll may be of interest.   George Parr of Windle, nailor, age 20 enlisted 12 Aug 1779, no 306. In the notes column it says "age given as 20" Perhaps there was some doubt?   John Twist of St Hellons(sic), paviour,age 24, enlisted 10 Aug 1779, no 293

    Who remembers Ready Reckoners where you could look up the cost of, for example, two dozen articles at nine shillings and sixpence ha'penny each?

    Winter warmers

    By Alan,
    Best made with an empty Tate and Lyle treacle tin. Punch holes all over it. Attach a length of wire. Put some rags inside, light them so they smoulder and swing it around your head until the rags temporarilly catch fire and then warm your hands on it. We knew how to live!
