Hi again

Hopefully this is a link to Lancashire Record office search and you can request further information

There's just one Fitton, John Fitton

I hope it helps as much as mine did


If it doesn't work google Lancashire Record Office and search their collections

https://policesearch.lancashire.gov.uk/police_detail.asp?id=59230

By the
 way, you've given me an idea. I may get another copy of mine, lost in storage in flooding

Best wishes

Hi Luke

I have a gg grandfather a police officer in the area and I got my best information including various family information and military reference which then lead to a service and Chelsea pensioner record from a brilliant resource in Lancashire record office

This was a police record for Lancashire. There was nana index and they sent me a copy of the full entry a few days later.  I was visiting the office


This was na few years ago and I think it may be at least indexed online, even if you have to ask for a copy.  Also check it hasn't been moved to Manchester.

My relative was in Rochdale and other local towns

Best wishes

Hi
Just a thought. Have you looked for local cemetery records online?  Then you could see if thereís a stone and if thereís any info

Also any crop to comments in the parish burial records. Itís not unknown!

Best wishes

Hi

Iíve not heard of that custom. A friends family and possibly my own further back were gypsiesand Iím learning.

However I do know that many where I used to live were RC and would appear inburial registers. Also in cemeteries up north where I used to live there were quite a few gypsy grave stones with beautiful paintings in colour especially of the vans and countryside. The local fishermen also had them for their boats There were quite a few of both, really besutiful and sometimeswith a little portrait of the person

I guess local gypsies to your family might know. Maybe youíll strike lucky here

Take care

Emms :)

Lancashire / Re: Diggle - my missing grandfather
« on: Sunday 25 October 20 23:12 GMT (UK)  »
Hi

Nice to be in contact with another Diggle descendant. Sorry, not one of yours and a bit infuriating. I have been looking into my Diggles for ages with a good head start from my auntie. Iím not related but the annoying thing is mine have been so close and Iíve seen Moreton Diggles so often to discount. Mine are in Lancashire but mostly Catholic and also some in Australia

However Iíll look at our old notes and search results and see if I have anything relevant

Good luck and enjoy Rootschat


Best wishes
