Hi my great grandfather was onboard the Charles Livingston serving as a fireman on its fateful night in November 1939 at Liverpool, my nan lost her father at the young age of 8 and has no pictures of him unfortunately, I wondered if anyone can point me in the right direction please? Thanks in advance

Hi.
I have a 1946 Liverpool Bay Pilot's Chart signed 'JH Aileiler?? PM3576' and wonder if you could  properly identify him and say how long he was a pilot etc?
Many thanks

Hi Iain,

Hello, I'm looking for Henry Murphy, born c.1823 and noted as a Master Mariner on the birth cert of his son in 1867. Someone in the family has told me he was a Mersey Pilot, but that's all the info we have. Wondered if you could help? Kind regards :)

Iain hasn't been back to check for replies but for the record I would say that the surname is Atherton.

However there are no listings in "Beyond the Bar" for pilots named Atherton in the mid-20th century.

There are a masters and mates certificates on Ancestry for Henry Murphy born Downpatrick on 24 June 1822. Is that your man? There's quite a lot of information there about his history as a mariner.

Oh I'm not sure, I have a census transcript that puts his year of birth as 1823, how do I look at the information you mentioned?
