If you are using Chrome, turn off "Always use secure connections" in settings.
Tried that,still no dice.
Can't say I've ever heard of that website but if your browser says it isn't secure I'd be inclined to avoid it and use the reputable sites instead. Is it something in particular that you can't get from other websites?
As the site was recommended by a moderator I kinda trusted it! It's a family tree with links to my research.
I also accessed the site, using Firefox, with no problems.
Drat.I hate Firefox :-\

Thanks guys, I presume the location was Rushall or Walsall,physical location of the school is of lesser interest.Family were asking what the place was about,I'm thinking the boy who was about 15 at the time was looking to enter an apprenticeship and needed some brownie points.

Thats got to be my darling gran,previous notes were obviously off point the address of 49 piggot might be the charm.I guess the death of wee Bobby knocked her off her pegs, Harry is my uncle and I was unsure of his birth place and of Grans arrival in NZ. Looks like youve nailed it for me, a million thanks.

Asking for assistance,I would like to know who resided at the Piggot St address mentioned below.
