  1. From my 20+ years of genealogical research, about 16 of which have been focused on the Great War, I can say that whenever the question of FWR crops up, the overwhelming majority of respondents advise that they be avoided. The occasional success story gets a mention, but is quickly drowned out by dissatisfied customers who have (usually) spent lots of money for little return
  2. Mmm, followed the link and was confronted by a screen full of scantily clad ladies. That didn't go down too well in the work place
  3. All seems OK to me (10 hours later :-) )
  4. My dad built the Tower. At least, that's what he told me when I was little. He worked as a Rigger for Cubitts. After building the Tower he moved to the Copper Refinery in Prescot (BCR)
  5. zippyshare is dreadful 🙂 All kinds of dodgy links ar offered, including some VERY dodgy images !
  6. My burial data covering 1665-1921 shows only 5 "Flanagan" entries in that period John , buried 28/05/1890 aged 34 Eliza Maud, buried 03/06/1890, aged 23 months Nancy, buried 03/03/1862, aged 50 Daniel, 16/04/1797, no age shown John, 11/05/1797, no age given, son of the above Daniel
  7. I lived at 85 Eldon Street in the early 1970's but don't recall any Eldon Row around there
  8. Some interesting (and evocative) footage of the dig before they build the Shakespeare Centre My great grandparents lived in the slums of Highfield Place
  9. There's a 1918 AVL entry for 29 Church Street, so strong possibility that No 27 actually existed
  10. I lost my Popeye figure in there circa 1966 Still traumatised :-(
  11. I reckon that moon explained all the dickhead drivers on the road last night. M56/M6 seemed to have an inordinate number of dickheads cutting in and out of traffic, not signalling, sudden (for no apparent reason) braking, etc.
  12. Also bear in mind that the general usage of GSW to mean Gun Shot Wound also included Shrapnel injuries
  13. There are 4 entries on the AVL for "James Kelly" - 58 Brook Street, Sgt 10455, 6th South Lancs 16 Waterloo Street – no service details 36 Morley Street, Pte 240214, South Lancs 4 Waine Street, Pte 293187, Cheshire Regt
  14. Quite a large turnout at Prescot also, though much smaller scale than St Helens Outline plans already being discussed for next year'e service
  15. If you let me have an email address, I can send you the relevant Echo article. You can contact me via my website (see footer) if you prefer The Reporter would report on deaths if and when advised by the family. In my research, the items in the paper are usually of the type "Mr & Mrs Bloggs have now been officially informed.." and the only way that the newspapers would have that information would be from the family. Official lists would have simply listed the surname, initial, number and (occasionally) the home town of men who had been listed as wounded, missing, taken prisoner of killed/died of wounds but without any associated narrative or picture
  16. Henry would have attested for military service around November 1915 but the 2/10th only went overseas on 2nd February 1917. He would have originally had a four digit service number but was allocated 357722 in the Territorial Force renumbering of February 1917 A family notice appeared in the Liverpool Echo on 8th May 1917 but no picture, I'm afraid
  17. Steve Contact the people at FOPCC via their site. They are working to produce a detailed plan of the marked graves in the old churchyard http://prescotcemetery.org.uk/ I can tell you that Albert was buried in St Mary's on 19th August 1911
  18. I just have an urge to be pedantic - it's not a census but a National Register I'll get my coat on the way out
  19. It's more the on-kerb parking that annoys me because that is selfish and dangerous to pedestrians
  20. Dave Does that last line cover PROH as well?
