1911 Census Look Up in Burnley
« on: Friday 17 February 17 01:08 GMT (UK) »
Please could SKS look up Alfred Walker Clarkson born 1858 in Leeds, West Yorkshire.  I have found an Alfred Walks Clarkson born 1858 Leeds living in Burnley, West Ward on Familysearch.org  He was a stationer/book binder.  Unfortunately I do not have a findmypast subscription and cannot find this entry on Ancestry.  This does look very much like him but I would appreciate if someone could have a look to confirm.  He had a wife Sarah Jane (who I think had died in 1908) and children Frank bc1882, Florence (Florrie) bc1883, Lilly bc1884, Annie bc1890 all born Leeds and then also Eva bc 1892, George bc 1894 and Henry bc 1898 all born Salford.

Thank you for reading,

CJ

The 1911 Census is still covered by copyright issues! :-\

The situation is far from clear, but the prospect of (expensive) legal action is enough for RootsChat to make the rule "No 1911 lookups".

As the OP has a subscription  to Ancestry but cannot find the record I don't think there's any harm in giving a link ( which wouldn't work without a sub anyway ).

The reason you can't find it is because they haven't transcribed that individual in the household.

thank you for your replies and apologies I didn't realise that we cannot ask for 1911 look ups.  It has been a while and I am just getting back into researching.  Thank you Christine53 you have saved my sanity, I had searched and searched for him so no wonder I couldn't find him. Again, my thanks and apologies x

Is he the one who married Sarah Jane Bulmer / Ratcliffe? Did he change his name, for some reason, later?
