Shropshire / Re: Conflicting DOBs for Muriel Guest and Barbara Guest.
« on: Wednesday 20 March 19 13:35 GMT (UK)  »
Many thanks Debra, Mckha489 and Pheno. I certainly have a better understanding of things now. I'm pretty new to the 1939 Register so the pointer to the National Archives page was very useful.


Shropshire / Conflicting DOBs for Muriel Guest and Barbara Guest.
« on: Saturday 16 March 19 19:43 GMT (UK)  »
Muriel L Guest and Barbara Guest were two of the children of William Guest and Elizabeth Louisa Peaceful. My records indicate that both were born at 88 Hillside, Wellington, Shropshire.

The 1939 Register indicates that Muriel was born on 7th April 1915. But Barbara was born on 27th July 1915. There's something not quite right here. Either I've done something stupid or the records are a bit dodgy.

Also, on the 1939 Register Muriel's surname of Guest has been crossed out and the name "Alim" written above. She didn't take the name Alim until 1942 when she got married so obviously the details on the 1939 Register were being altered and some would say "tampered with" long after the event.

Can anyone shed any light on any of this?

Many thanks.

Found it!

Shropshire / Burial Place of Thomas Healey and Annie Stanworth Healey.

Could anyone tell me where Thomas Healey (b. 1859, d.1930) and his wife Annie Stanworth Healey (née Harris) (b. 1857, d. 1931) are buried? They were married at Ketley in 1890.

I also believe that the ashes of one of their daughters, Georgina Eleanor Harris Weatherby (née Healey) were interred with them in 1974/75.

Many thanks.

Shropshire / Harry Frederick Harris Mason b.1917 d.1963

Harry Frederick Harris Mason died on 18 September 1963 and was buried in Wombridge Cemetery, Telford, Shropshire on 21 September 1963.

Does anyone know if there was an obituary notice for him in the local newspaper?

Many thanks.

Shropshire / Church of St. John The Evangelist, Lawley. Removal of headstones.
« on: Friday 05 January 18 13:41 GMT (UK)  »
Can anyone tell me when headstones were cleared from the churchyard at St. John's in Lawley? I'm specifically interested in the one for H.J. Mason.

I know that a memorial stone for him was subsequently erected in Shrewsbury Cemetery and a new headstone was erected at St. John's by the CWGC in November 2015, but I'd like to know when his original stone was removed.

Many thanks.

Shropshire / Re: Jonah Peaceful. 1845-1908.

Dear Doris.

Many thanks for your message.

Your Jonah Peaceful is the son of Jonah Peaceful (b. 1875, d. 1939) and Ada Griffiths (b. 1874, d. 1949).

Jonah Peaceful senior was one of my grandmother’s (Elizabeth Louisa Peaceful) brothers so that would make him my great uncle.

I’ve currently got details of two of young Jonah’s siblings (although there may be more). He had two sisters, Florence May Peaceful (b. 1900) and Ada Louisa Peaceful (b. 1903).

If you have any more information I’d be delighted to hear it.

I’ve been having a quick look at some of your posts on RootsChat and the name Ferraday rang a bell with me. My mother knew an Ida Ferraday whose father had the chemist shop in Oakengates. I think Ida or her father (or possibly both) might be buried in Wombridge churchyard. Please let me know if you think that there is a connection. I shall be in that area over Christmas (my mother is also buried there) and if I can find a headstone I’ll take a photograph for you.   

Thank you so much for contacting me.

Kind regards


Thanks Cas.

Anne Stanworth Healey was Sarah's mother.

Aldred certainly looks like a possibilty. I've found a William Henry Aldred, born Madeley 1891 (which makes him roughly the same age as Harry and Sarah - he may have been the Best Man).



I've been advised to post this on here in the hope that someone might be able to help me.

I'm trying to decipher the parish record for the marriage of Harry Mason to Sarah Anne Elizabeth Healey on 5th August 1916 at the Church of St. Mary the Virgin, Ketley, Shropshire.

I can make out three of the four witnesses, Thomas Healey, Georgina Eleanor Harris Healey and Anne Stanworth Healey. I can't make out the fourth witness, William Henry ?????? and I can't read the vicar's name (it looks like T. Lawrie ????????).

Can anyone help please.

Many thanks.
