    According to Soldiers Died WW1 this James Kelly was born Liverpool, enlisted Liverpool and resided in Kirkdale Liverpool. However there are other Kelly's who have Chorley as mother's maiden name - Ann, Ellen, Timothy & Sarah and this family can be found on 1911 census living 27 Pitt Street St Helens.

  6. Lloyd family, 145 Baldwin street?

    I doubt that Baldwin Street would be considered to be in Whiston - could you provide names and ages of your great grandfather and his family as this would provide us with a starting point. Welcome to connect !

  8. can anyone help me please ?

    Not really what you are looking for but on 1939 register John Duffy b 25 Nov 1883 and wife Jane b 25 Mar 1884 are living at 114 Holly Bank St St Helens. Other possible children for Duffy/Woosey reg Prescot are Mary A 1917, Margaret A 1920 and Peter 1925. Unable to locate John Duffy birth reg in Prescot for 1883 - he may have been born elsewhere

    The marriage of Henry and Margaret is online at Lancashire Online Parish Clerk. It tells you the name of Bride & Groom's fathers

    Henry Swift married Margaret Atherton 16 April 1860 at Eccleston St Thomas . A copy of the marriage certificate will give the name of Henry's father. According to the census of 1871 Henry was born in Whiston nr Prescot. There are 2 Henry Swift birth reg at about this time - Q4 Prescot Henry Swift mother's name Rimmer and Q1 1846 Prescot mother's name Forshaw
  11. Locked people on 1939 census

    From my experience the locked people are children. If you can find the marriage of the parents you can search birth records by using the mother's maiden name and this should enable you to find who the locked people are.
