1891 Moffat Dumfriesshire
« on: Tuesday 19 September 17 12:03 BST (UK) »
I am looking for information on the barbers shop in Well Street, Moffat , Dumfriesshire, Scotland. Iam led to believe that my Great Grandfather may have owned or just worked in it, I also know that he attended the Moffat Hydro to cut the visitors hair. thanks

Hi , welcome to RC  :)

What was your great grandfather's name ?
He might be on the Valuation Rolls on Scotlandspeople if he was the proprietor.
