My great grandfather William Eckersley died in 1913 at 4 Bowes Street Warrington, would anyone have any idea where this street was. Thank You.

If you go to http://www.old-maps.co.uk/maps.html and put the coordinates 360580, 389170 in to the search boxes, it will centre the map on where Bowes Street was. If you select the 1927-1928 1:2500 map from the right hand side and zoom in you will see Bowes Street which is south off Forster Street east of Winnick Road.

Thanks so much Stan, I used to live in Warrington but wasn't interested in family history then, and when my Gran was alive I never asked her.  Chris.

Hello,
Did you find bowes street? I have recently. In fact my parents lived in 4 Bowes Street and my mum rest her sweet soul gave birth to 5 children there that would have been from 1949 to to 1952.

Yes I did find it from a nice man Stan that sent me this link.    Bowes Street which is south off Forster Street east of Winnick Road. Wow that's a coincidence my great grandad lived and died in 4, Bowes Street he was William Eckersley.

If you go to https://www.old-maps.co.uk/#/Map/360630/389189/13/101329 you can see Bowes Street and the house numbers, you will have to change the zoom level using the -  in the top left hand corner.
