I think these snippets from the British Newspaper Archives refer to the Frederick Young death you mentioned? Perhaps someone with a sub. could post the full articles for you (if you blow them a kiss!!)

Hi

As the others have said - parents appear to be John & Mary E Down.

They are on the 1871 census with an Eliza L Dunn born c1866.

Eliza subsequently said she was born Bromley, Middx. I think this is Bromley St Leonards, which is where the family are in 1871.

Hi Cotton Reel

You haven't told us where they were in 1911. Or names of any of the children. Or where and when they were born. Neither have you said when and where the parents were born!

Could you supply the Census Reference please?


Cheers

Giggsy  ;D

"I wonder how (with the lack of all internet, social media and telephone) you would follow up on someone you met and turn it into a few 'dates' and a potential relationship".


You would have asked her out on a 'double date'. She would bring a friend and so would you.

People actually communicated better in those days than they do now!  ;D

Hi Lisa

http://www.workhouses.org.uk/Birkenhead/

It was originally the Workhouse but later became Birkenhead Municipal Hospital.

Not sure when that happened?
