Would anyone be able to do a lookup for an Elizabeth Phillips who died in possibly Jan-Mar 1911 and she lived in Highenden and Great Kingshill for all of her life. I would like to know who she is buried with if possible and where.


Buckinghamshire / James Edward Phillips - Wycombe/Hughenden - b1881
« on: Wednesday 17 September 14 13:09 BST (UK)  »
Hey, I am trying to find out more about my Great Uncle James Edward Phillips, I have found him up until 1911 where he is a border living with is brother and his grandad but I cannot find any marriage record for him, no death record or anything post 1911. Just wondering if anyone could help in any way to find a marriage or death for him or even anything!

Thankyou in advance, Michael

Lancashire / Samuel Johnston b.1888 d.1940 (Westmorland)
« on: Sunday 03 August 14 18:30 BST (UK)  »
hi guys,
I am looking for some more information relating to Samuel Johnston. I am struggling to find him before his marriage in 1915.

He was married in 1915 in Westmorland to Essie Pearson, his father was Thomas Johnston.
Samuel is down as doing farm service and his father is down as being a Blacksmith.
I have seen a few family trees which suggest Samuel was born in Ireland but non of them have any sources or facts to support this. I am just wondering if anyone would be able to try and help and find him in 1911. I have Samuel down as living at Kidande Farm in Milnthorpe in 1915 (spelling probably wrong).

Any help would be kindly appreciated :)

Lancashire Lookup Requests / St Wilfrid Ribchester Lookup
« on: Wednesday 14 May 14 11:50 BST (UK)  »
Hi Guys,
I was wondering if someone would be able to do a look up request for me.
I know there are some grave inscriptions for most of the graveyard for the time I want and was wondering who else is buried in my relatives grave.

I am looking for my greatx3 grandad and grandma Jabcob Whalley and Elizabeth (Betty) Whalley.

Jacob was buried 13 Apr 1885 in grave 11/15
Betty was buried 24 Apr 1890 in grave 11/15.

I  would like to know if there is an inscription to see who is in the grave or even better if someone is going possibly a photograph of the grave (if there is a headstone).

I live in Blackburn and would normally try and get there myself but I am working in France for the next few months which is quite annoying as I really want to find out more :)

Thankyou in advance

Hey All,
Would someone be able to help me. I am trying to track down a death for Arnold Ainsworth Blackwell.
He was born in 1891 in Brindle, Lancashire and he got married to Phoebe Maria Hewins in 1921 in Chorley. I have found a death for Phoebe in 1977 but cannot find anything at all for Arnold.

Hope someone can help :)

Lancashire / Patrick Miles Murphy b1872
« on: Saturday 01 March 14 21:39 GMT (UK)  »
Hey all,
I am really struggling with this guy. He is my Great Great Grandad and have found his name off his daughters marriage certificate and he is also described as a labourer. I have found his birth in 1872 in Liverpool but cannot find any marriage or death for him at all. I also cannot find him on any census.
His daughter is Teresa Ellen Murphy (later Moss) and she was born in 1898 in Birkenhead and died in 1959 in Blackburn, Lancashire.

Any clues or help would be appreciated.
