  1. Hi Hort, and thanks for the Link, so it's where Sherdley Primary School is now, I only knew of Whiston/Prescot Union Workhouse, have to have a nosey on the workhouse website and see if they have a record of this one. I imagine the link between Thieves Lane and Workhouse Lane is when thieves have nowt to nick, no food and nowhere to sleep, they head to the workhouse just round the corner.
  2. That is a brain buster, I don't know as yet, time to get digging.
  3. Thanks for that info Phyll, all home owners on Eaves Lane can have a chuckle at the thought of Michael Hughes gamekeepers chasing after the poachers down their lane.
  4. It seems poachers making their getaway from Michael Hughes Estate Sherdley Park after poaching his game, used thieves Lane as a quick exit, hence present day Eaves Lane, go to www.suttonbeauty. org.uk for more in depth info.
  5. Thanks Stephen & Ned, I found Albert Job Kirbys Grave, his wife Ellen Kirby (nee Jones) married John Underwood in 1915 after Albert Jobs death in 1911, hence explaining Ellen Underwood on the gravestone, like you say Ned, his son, John Richard is on the grave, who I didn't know about, some of the other Kirby names you mention I think are from a separate Kirby family, as I remember going to school with Kirbys who were not related. I didn' know about Hilda Underwood either so a good search I have put the photo's on find a Grave.com As far as I can make it out, the transcription reads as: In Loving Memory of Albert Job Kirby Died Aug 14th 1911 Aged 30 Years Also John R Kirby Son of the Above Died Sept 5th 1912 Aged 1 Year Also Hilda Underwood Died Oct 20th 1932 Aged 16 Years Also John Underwood Father of the Above Died Jan 30th 1941 Aged 59 Years Also His Wife Ellen Underwood Died May 8th 1941 Aged 59 Years
  6. Thanks again Ned, I will have a look into these names & dates. Steve Kirby
  7. Thanks very much Stephen Nulty for your help & link, I had no actual burial date info, just his death certificate, as I checked on Lancashire OLPC as well but no mention of a burial date there, I will look into this further. Thanks again Steve Kirby. added 11 minutes later Thanks very much Ned, that would be great if he is the right Albert Job Kirby/Albert Kirby, I have no info on baby John Richard in my research, maybe I have missed this birth, another route to go down, his father was John Kirby who died 3 years after Albert, both of them were Water Works Inspectors at the Liverpool Corporation Water Works at Prescot/Eccleston. That would be great if you could find the photo, at least the New Section gives me an idea where to start looking. Thanks again Steve Kirby
  8. I'm trying to find if the burial plot still exists for my Great Grandfather Albert Job Kirby, died 14th August 1911 aged 30 years, Inscription may read as Albert Kirby the same as his death certificate. I have found the plot for my other Great Grandfather Thomas Edward Healey on Section 4. Does anybody know if Sections/plots were allocated all around the same decade, century to a specific section or were the families given a choice ? Does anybody also know of any contacts that I could get in touch with for tips regarding my search ? Thanks for your help, time and interests. Steve Kirby.
  9. Thanks for your help Stephen, as long as I keep bearing slight right, hopefully I should find Thomas Edward Healey's grave, have to take my butties and flask, me thinks it could be a long day.
  10. Thanks very much Ned, I will take a wander down to the cemetery to see if I can find the grave in the next week and let you know if I manage to find it. I have sent copies of deed and invoice as jpg attachments to your email address.
  11. Hello Ned, Thanks for your efforts to preserve the history of Prescot Cemetery, I have the deeds for my Great Grandfather Thomas Edward Healey's Grave in Section 4, Grave number 99, paid for by his Widow Elizabeth Ann Healey dated 17th May 1930. Do you or anybody else reading this have any ideas where Section 4 is ?, Is it worth me contacting Knowsley Council for further info ? I can send you copies of the deed and the invoice as jpeg attachments to help with your database and plan developments, just let me know where to send them. Thanks again Ned Steve.
  12. Thanks very much Le200 for your time and effort in searching for the grave details of my, Great Grandfather/Mother Robert & Jane Bainbridge, my mams Gran and Grandfather, and my Great Uncle/Aunt Richard Norman & Jane Bainbridge, my mams Uncle and Aunt, I will try and get to St.Peters next week through the day to see if I can find the graves and then bring my mam, as she is coming up to 82 and is a bit unsteady on her feet, so it would be easier to take her direct to the graves rather than search with her, she has been wondering for a few years where the graves are so hopefully her wish can be granted. Many thanks Steve.
