Norfolk / Re: kings lynn marine store dealer [rag and bone]

Could this be him in 1911 with his father, a marine store dealer?

ADDED: Just realised the age is way out - who did he name as his father on his marriage certificate?

Several newspapers also give Jane's address as 273 Fourth Street, including this one:

There is a newspaper article in August 1887 about The Railway Murder saying that the police wanted to interview Jane again but were unable to locate her as she had abandoned her lodgings leaving two months rent unpaid

You're very welcome moonshine, but all I did was find it what Max's 11-year old missed  ;D   Max is the expert at putting the meat on the bones, as you've already seen.

The daily casualty list for 3 Apr 1917 includes W Parkinson, 22398, East Lancashire Regiment, with Great Harwood also noted - usually place of birth or enlistment.  The casualty lists usually appear several weeks after the actual incident.

Part of his service record is on FindMyPast - transferred from 6th East Lancashire Regiment to MGC on 15 Sep 1918

The Common Room / Re: Ancestry website constantly down

1861 English census has disappeared, for me, and they said that they were having problems on Monday/Tuesday.

I've been having problems with the 1861 England too, in that it didn't appear in the list if I searched by person & then narrowed it down via census & then decade, but I was able to search it if I selected the specific record set first & then searched.  All seem OK today.
