    Liverpool PALS! Does this refer?

    I don't think it does refer to Liverpool Pals. The pals are officially 17th, 18th, 19th & 20th Battalions. From what you have posted it would appear that William Hodgson was in 7th Battalion

  4. Jeff - checked AVL - thanks for the tip. There is a Harry Bennett on the list living 126 Nutgrove Road but as yet not found a connection between Harry and Austin.
  5. Looking at POWs from St Helens WW1. One man is Lance Corporal Austin Bennett of Royal Irish Regiment taken prisoner 5 Sept 1918. His POW record has his next of kin - mother Agnes - living Colliery House Thatto Heath, St Helens. His service record has him demobilized to Colliers House. Nutgrove, Thatto Heath, St Helens. Looking for any info on Colliery/Colliers House Thatto Heath

    Bradley Family

    OK - I have Isaac on 1871 Census living Queen Street Preston with sibling Daniel. Isaac's birth reg Q1 1863 Manchester - mother's maiden name Carr. Daniel reg Q1 1856 Lancaster again mother's maiden name Carr. Dates don't tally exactly with what is on 1871 Census although place of birth does. Assuming that Jane Barnes is mother of Isaac then his parents were a male Bradbury & Jane Carr. A possibility is the marriage between Thomas Bradley & Jane Carr reg 1857 Garstang Preston. Checking on 1861 Census living at 39 Rose Entry, Wigan is a Thomas Bradley boarder married aged 38 miner b Lancaster, Jane Carr transcribed as Caret married aged 30 spinner in factory b Lancaster and amongst others Daniel Bradley nephew to head of house aged 4 b Lancaster and William Bradley nephew aged 1 b Preston. Birth of this William reg Q2 1860 Preston - mother's maiden name Carr
