Not for Liverpool Annie, as such, but just to take the example. Each post on here is an act of kindness, a willingness to share. That's my sermon for today ;D

Hi Tony,

Thought I would check my names while I remember. I thik they are mainly from Openshaw rather than Gorton itself but it's quite close and there are a lot of family links in Gorton too so I wonder if they might be included.

If you had time to check that would be fantastic. I am already lucky enough to have found the service records for John Lovatt Knight and William Toft and Henry McBride but any more info or photos would be fantastic.

Many thanks

Milly
