Hi. Can anyone please make out the first word of the paragraph please. It relates possibly to a medical diagnosis of James Green. In 1918, on discharge he was sent to the Ďasylumí in Lancaster, where he remained until his death in 1964.

I think it reads:-

...... constitutional aggravated by stress of campaign ...... capacity assessed 16th ? recommended for treatment in asylum.

It has been a difficult one to read. It has been edited to be in any hope of making sense of it. Many thanks as always.

Lancashire / John Green b 1877 Burnley Help needed
« on: Thursday 31 December 20 13:16 GMT (UK)  »
Hi. Can anyone please help me find John Green. He was born in Burnley on the 20 March 1877 to Michael Green and Ann Donnelly. In 1881 he is living with his mother, who is lodging at 3 Pickup Court Burnley. In 1891 census the family are together at 19 Cow Lane. I have military service records, enlisted 21 May 1895 to the East Lancs Regiment. He was discharged in 1896 for ignorminy. That is where the trail ends, I can find no other information. I have checked Burnley Workhouse records, there is nothing relating to him. If anyone can help it would be really appreciated. Many thanks as always.

Armed Forces / Elihu Moss 9th Lancers
« on: Thursday 25 June 20 16:42 BST (UK)  »
My 3x great grandfather, Elihu Moss, born Bristol 1795 was a soldier in the 9th Lancers from 1813 to 1841. I have a list of Barracks they stayed at during those years. My question, would anyone know if the whole regiment would move, or just fragments of it? I am trying to establish whether he was at Ballinrobe Barracks, Ireland in 1825/26. I have his record of service, it just says served at home. Back then Ireland was included in the UK. His son, Walter Moss born 1835 lists his place of birth as Newbridge, Ireland. The regiment were at Newbridge in 1835. Many thanks as always

Hi. This photo was given to me by my father and has told me they are his grandparents. Which side of the family I am unsure off. Could anyone give me an approximate date to maybe give me the clue I need. There is no photographers mark and the paper is very thin. One set of grandparents were in Bolton, Lancashire, the other Chipping Sodbury, Gloucestershire. Any help would be very much appreciated. Many thanks

World War Two / Liberation of Bergan Belsen
« on: Sunday 07 June 20 16:29 BST (UK)  »
Hi. There is a family story about my great uncle, James Green, who helped with the liberation of the camp. As I know no more info, does anyone know what regiments of the British Army assisted with this? I have no idea what regiment he served with, and with the enormous popularity of his name, itís near impossible to find out. In the hope this may narrow it down somewhat! Many thanks for your invaluable help as always

Lancashire / Missing 1881 census Burnley
« on: Saturday 06 June 20 09:20 BST (UK)  »
Hi, just wondering if there is an explanation as to why 2 of my families are missing in 1881 census Burnley. They are, Thomas Green b1851 Manchester and his family, and Michael Doran with wife Sarah. Michaelís dob varies, but around 1852. Both couples married in Burnley, 1879 and 1877 respectively. Baptisms also took place 1880 and 1881 in Burnley. Both families re appear in 1891, living on Maltkiln St. Any help would be terrific as I have searched and searched. Many thanks as always.

Hi. Would anyone be able to date this photo in order that I can establish the family connection please? I have a hunch that they could be siblings from the Holdsworh family from Burnley. The photo measures 3.5 inches by 2.5 inches and is on dark green card. Also, do they appear middle class? What class of people would have photos taken around this time? If they are the family I think, the fatherís occupation was an Agent for the Leeds Liverpool canal company. Any help would be terrific. Many thanks as always

The attached photo is of my great grandfather, Thomas Green and his family from Burnley around 1914. The little girl is my grandmother. It has recently surfaced among family belongings, so I live in hope that something can be done to remove the creases. Any help would be appreciated. Many thanks as always to everyone.
