Armed Forces / Royal Marines. What is his rank please?
« on: Tuesday 15 September 20 19:29 BST (UK)  »
I have inherited this picture of my grandfather.  It is not valuable, except to me.  I would like to know what rank he held at the time it was painted please.

I have downloaded his file from the N/A wondered if anyone could shed some light on them and, maybe, explain them to me a little, I would be grateful as I am literally 'all at sea'.   :)   I understand that he was in Hong Kong in 1899 and the ships he served on :

Immortalite 1895-98. Wildfire 1899-1900. Pembroke 1900-02.  Wildfire 1903-04.  Resolution 1905 (3 months).  Bedford 1906 (1 month). Charybdis 1906-07.  Cressy 1907-1909.  Victory RM Brigade(?) 1914-15.  Marshal Sault 1915-16. 

Many thanks.  Royd.

Thank you so very much for those links - really grateful.  I have access to FindMyPast newspapers but couldn't find anything very much about Carvers in Prontypridd area at all.  I have never explored all possibilities in Welsh records before, so this has enlightened me!  Thank you again.  R.

Thank you for your prompt response.  I do not have the certificate as yet - simply the registration of his death.  R.

Glamorganshire / Pontypridd records
« on: Friday 11 September 20 21:53 BST (UK)  »
Hi

I am researching a family who lived in Pontypridd from about 1896 - I can find the civil marriages, births, deaths etc but am unable to find many parish records for them.  I know that this may mean that they were Roman Catholic etc., but just wondered if I was missing something in my search. 

George Mills Carver was born in Newport in 1871 and was married in 1895 to Catherine Kane in Pontypridd.  They continued to live there and had several children - George was a hairdresser.  He died in Pontypridd in 1925.  I have scoured FindMyPast and Ancestry and have the census etc., but would love to be able to find parish records as in where they are buried for example.

If anyone can point me in the right direction, I would be very grateful.  Thank you.   Royd.

Lancashire / Re: SALFORD Miner's hostels

Hello again

I am trying to trace a lady who had a child in Hope Hospital in 1952.  On his birth certificate it states that she is a supervisor in a miners' hostel.  The address given for her is a home for unmarried mothers.  Regards.  Royd.

Thank you very much.  Would they have been the nearest to Salford?  Royd.
