  1. Thanks for the info folks, thanks for the link Phyll, I don't remember the area at all, seeing the photos reminded me of other parts of St H. My interest was and is a family history question, unfortunately the links to the area have all died out and without coming to the town and looking through electoral roles etc. things will remain a mystery, but hey, I'm working on it. Thank again
  2. According to the 1939 register there used to be 95 houses including a shop or two.
  3. Anybody got any memories, photo's etc. of Oldfield Street, St Helens prior to its redevelopment?
  4. Dave, thanks for this. I will now add Thomas' details to my tree.
  5. Dave, Enoch and Ellen were his grandparents. I'd like to know if he's still alive, there's a good chance he'd be 80. The 1939 register shows one closed account, Thomas' record is shown which usually means that he has passed, yet I can't find any record of his death. He may well have moved from the area bit of a long shot really but you never know.
  6. For my family tree I'm looking for a Thomas Davies born St Helens 6 March 1938, father Albert (1901-1962) mother Florence (nee Ashcroft 1904-1957). In 1939 the family lived in Dorothy Street Thatto Heath. Any help info gratefully received.
  7. What's happened to the pub then? Had my first legal pint in there in 1968. 27 bus from Ravenhead used to stop next to the pub (nothing to do with my pint incidentally), 2/6d (25p) from Royal Grove, what a memory! That was a stack of money in those days.
  8. Thanks for that John, I'll do a bit more research.
  9. Anybody come across this name in St Helens or wider North West?
  10. Thanks everyone for your input, my ancestor was an agricultural labourer, his address in the 1841 census was Fowley Common, bit vague that, I looked on Google and found Fowley Lane, next time we're over in St H I'll take a trip up to Culcheth and see what I can find. Thanks for the pub link HenryJ (always a good start) and the photo's Phyill. Cheers
  11. Anybody know anything about Fowley Common Culcheth? I'm researching my family tree, 2x great grand parents address in the 1841 census at this address, I can only find Fowley Common Lane. Cheers all
  12. Lampo in Elephant Lane somewhere between Vincents shop and the off license, cars, what cars? The odd 24 bus now and then!!
  13. Can anybody tell me what's happening to Pilks HQ building ?
