Hi Jim,

On the Electoral Rolls I have seen they are Indexed by name rather than address.

Who would we need to look for at Higher Sheffield Street  ???

Sarah :)

Hi Sarah, the family I hope were living at the address are as follows.

Parents = James & Isabella warburton

Children = Charles, Arthur, & Thomas Amos.

On the Nat Roll list of Honour it has an 'A' and a 'C' Warburton who both served in ww1, and both have the same address, 'A' Warburton died in France 1917 and
'C' Warburton survived, It's very possible that they are both my grandfathers brothers, my grandfather being Thomas Amos Warburton.

any info would be fantastic.

many thanks in advance Sarah

Jim
