Cambridgeshire Lookup Requests / Wisbech Burials
« on: Wednesday 23 September 09 04:33 BST (UK)  »
I'm hoping someone may be able to help me.

I am looking for the burials of Ruth Cornish died September 1909 quarter aged 1 and Herbert Cornish died June 1909 quarter aged 1 - both deaths were registered in Wisbech.

Could someone please tell me where burial indexes may be held - and who I need to contact to have them checked.  I think they may be my grandmother's siblings, but I'm not sure what religion they would be.

Thank you

Thank you and Celia for your efforts.

It's great that you were able to find them, nice too that they were in the same grave.   Have to look elsewhere for Amelia.

thanks again

Thanks for that, there are a couple of Frederick Hunt's (cousins and 2nd cousins) but not sure about the dates.

Really appreciate you looking for me.

Thank you for your replies.

Celia, I am pretty certain they were Methodists, possibly Primitive Methodists.  I was actually in Bebington Cemetery years ago with my grandmother, but this is on my grandfather's side.  Thank you for you offer.

John Hunt was born in 1850 in Birkenhead, his parents were Isaac Hunt and Marcella Cope - so Allan the entry for Wirral would appear to be his.

Thank you so much.

Cheshire Lookup Requests / Hunt burial - Birkenhead

I'm hoping someone might be able to give me some idea of where to focus my research for my great great grandfather's  burial.

John Hunt died 11 September 1923 aged 73 in Birkenhead, Cheshire, (his first wife Dora Annie had died 28 September 1902 aged 46/47), his wife Amelia L Hunt died March Quarter 1923 (from Free BMD).  Both his wives died in Birkenhead too.

I know Hunt is a very common name, and Birkenhead is huge - but if I could have some idea of where to start to look it would be a great help.

Thanks so much

My 2 times great grandmother Frances Ann Thomas was left an orphan after the death of her father - Rev Richard Thomas in Hemswell, Lincolnshire in June 1848.

I am hoping someone might be able to look her up for me on the 1851 census - she was born 17 March 1833 in Stanford Rivers, Essex.  She may be living with her brothers - Thomas Metcalf Thomas (christened in 1824), Robert Mitchinson Thomas (christened in 1826)  and William Henry Thomas (christened in 1831).

I would appreciate any assistance - I realise Thomas is a very common surname.

Thank you

Lancashire / Re: Callaghan Family 1891 Census
« on: Sunday 07 September 08 11:02 BST (UK)  »

Thank you so much for you quick reply.  Daniel Callaghan was my great great grandfather - so it's fantastic to find out more about him.

As he died in Liverpool, what cemetery would he have been buried in (or could it be one of many)?

Anyway thanks again for the information and also that of the Collins family.

I was hoping someone might be able to look up the following family for me on the 1891 Census.  On the 1881 Census they were living at 20 Worfield St House, in Liverpool.

Daniel Callagin (or Callaghan) aged 59 born in Ireland
Elizabeth Callagin                   aged 50 born in Ireland
William Collins son in law aged 23 born in Ireland
Catherine  Collins Daughter aged 22 born in Birkenhead
Mary E Callagin daughter aged 11 born in Birkenhead
Elizabeth McMichael grandaughter aged 7 born in Birkenhead
Daniel Callagin son aged 19 born in Birkenhead
Patrick Collins grandson aged 1 month born in Liverpool

I know this is a very common surname but I would appreciate any help you may be able to give me.

Thank you
