    Barrow Family

    Hi, This may help - according to GRO there is a birth for a Doris Agnes Barrow Q3 1903 Chorlton - mother's maiden name Coulton. 1911 Census has Doris Barrow - adopted aged 7 living at 41 Duncan Street, St Helens. Unable to find the parents of Doris - died ? I would be interested to look at service record of James Barrow as I have not been able to locate it. John added 31 minutes later Having just read your earlier reply Arthur Pownall and wife Mary Ann are living at 19 Wilding Street, Barton Eccles with Amy Barrow 9 step daughter.

    St Helens Rolls Of Honour.

    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. St Helens Deceased Search has a James Kelly buried 21 Dec 1925 age 33 - age fits for the one living in Pitt St - cause of death possibly related to WW1 ?
