Hello Mark,

Ive just seen your post on Rootschat about the Boston fishermen in WW1.
My wifes grt grandfather was Charles WALKERLEY who was on the Julian captured in 1914, came home Jan 1918.
We have been researching the Walkerleys for some years and a few years ago I had been in contact with a lecturer at Lincoln college/uni who sent me some details. 
I have a transcript of the newspaper report of the homecoming in 1918 of some of the fishermen (along with other prisoners.
There is also a book published privately about the Boston fishermen ...not sure if it is still available though, but i think there is a copy in Boston library.  Charles and other men are in photo on the front cover.

There is also a Ruhleben POW camp website which has a lot of names and info on was run very much on British social class lines! 

We now live in Lincs having moved in Dec 15 from down south, so now i am continuing the research into the Walkerleys.

Do let me know what your interest is and I will try and help.

Richard would you have this information available still. My great grandfather was from Grimsby and was imprisoned in Rehleben in 1914. I am looking for any info on his life in the camp and any pics. I have a small reference pic of him his Name was Wiliam Andrew. he was a cook on a ship

My family has a connection with Brighowgate Childrens` Home and also the Workhouse ( which was in Scartho Road Grimsby ) although slightly earlier that your relative.

If children under 5 were admitted to the Workhouse with their mother, they stayed there until 5 and then were moved upto Brighowgate.

There are some photos which are available to view, I did this at NELincs Archives, but I think some are closed.

Also, there are at least 2 booklets about these establishments; one which was written by Sadie Beal whose husband was the Master of the Workhouse and another one I think written by possibly Philip Grundy. Both contain some photos. I will see if I`ve got them.

Again, I`m not sure, it`s years since I visited those archives, but I think the last entry in the admittance book was 1927, which I was told had the 100 year closure rule, so that is well past now.

Thanks, I assume the 100 year rule will still apply on everything that is over 1918. However as my sister 's mum is still alive she can apply for her records. Her mother went into a mental hospital and her father was at sea so the children went straight into the children's home I believe. They stayed there until they were adults. It would be lovely to see the booklets if you still have them though.
