Lancashire / Monsall isolation hospital
« on: Sunday 21 March 21 15:15 GMT (UK)  »
Hi my partner's late father was admitted to Monsall isolation hospital around the late
50's early 60's. He doesn't know why he went in there so wondered if anyone knew what diseases they would have been treated for and are there any records available. He also served abroad during WW2 so I wondered if he had malaria


Sutherland / Sailing ships to Canada 1910
« on: Tuesday 23 February 21 13:53 GMT (UK)  »
Hi does anyone know what sailing ships sailed to Canada around 1910 from Scotland and where in Scotland would they have sailed from if they lived in the Sutherland area. When my aunty was born out of wedlock in Bonar in 1911 the father had sailed off to Canada but later sent tickets for my grandma and baby to join them but alas they were never given the tickets so remained in Sutherland.
Would be have gone to Canada with the forces around that time or maybe a different job or was there a migration thing going on. Any info would be good.

Hi I am looking for the parents of Joseph Lord b 1832c in Rochdale. Father is Joseph too but cannot find anything in the 1841 census .The Joseph born in 1832 married Ann Kenion / Kenyon in 1857 and only had one child called Joseph b 1860. Joseph 1832 died in 1887 aged 55 yrs, he was a painter.
If anyone could find his parents that would be great.


Lancashire / 1939 census lookup please
« on: Sunday 10 January 21 17:39 GMT (UK)  »
Hi would anyone be willing to have a look on the 1939 register please for an Alice A Lord living at 2 Charlotte Street, Rochdale. She has an Emily Lord living at the same address and would like to know if Emily was born in 1897. I have just ordered a death cert from the GRO for Emily, believing she had died, but it looks like she was still alive and was living in a different household to her husband.


Inverness / Inverness marriage
« on: Friday 08 January 21 21:48 GMT (UK)  »
Hi, looking for a marriage that took place in Inverness, could have been 70's or 80's, not really sure. The person is now deceased.
The lady was called Patricia Salmon at birth, born in Bolton around 1939. Patricia married Harold Greenwood in Bolton in 1958. They then divorced and remarried again twice more. They then went to live in Inverness and we have just found out she married someone else but don't know who. Patricia either married him under Salmon or Greenwood. I would be very grateful if someone could check the Scottish records.

Thankyou Moira

London and Middlesex / Nursing homes etc
« on: Saturday 09 May 20 08:23 BST (UK)  »
A friend has a photo of her Nanna, Katherine Gillespie taken in 1939, she is in a nurses uniform holding a baby that looks to be around 7 months old. On the back of the photo it just says "Cooke's" 1939. She would love to find out where this was taken. I have searched the 1939 register and there was only one lady in Ealing born 1896. Was wondering if there were any homes or hospitals with the name of Cooke's. Any info would be welcome.
