Staffordshire / Re: Does anyone live in Wolverhampton? Know WARDs?

Well the person I want is listed in Wolverhampton on the site, under the current electoral roll, but I cant view it cos Ive got to pay..   ::)  hmmm  I wonder if it IS current, or if its like the site where its apparently a few years behind...

England / Sent a letter, now Im worried...

I sent a letter to an address I found on under the electoral roll details for the person I was looking for.

Ive just looked on another website for phone numbers etc, and the electoral roll address didnt come up for the same person, but two other people, same name - one more than likely to be her - was on there...

So now Im worried they have moved and wont receive my letter!  :-\  And it was hand written so I dont really have a convenient copy I can send to the other address/es...

What Im trying to ask, or get reassurance for, is if there is mail redirect in England? Im sure there is, but Im worried that they wont receive this letter (they have NO idea it is coming or that extended family exist - so its very important)...

I was thinking of maybe trying to ring the phone numbers I found online for the other addresses if I dont get a reply soon?  But how soon is too soon?

Ahhh now I kinda wish I hadnt found the other addresses/numbers.

No sorry...

I was hoping this may give me some info?

Its not at all possible to lookup the surname only?  I suppose it would mean trawling through HEAPS of papers..   ???  oh well.

No worries, I shall just have to wait another 6yrs.. or until I get another clue. :)


Staffordshire Lookup Requests / 1901/1911 Census Lookup Please
« on: Sunday 28 May 06 08:11 BST (UK)  »
As part of my searches, I was wondering if anyone would be kind enough to look up the following in the 1901 or 1911 census please?

Surname: ROUSE
District: Wolverhampton.

My possible connection was born Phoebe ROUSE in 1902.  I wondering if she would be on the census with her family? Or in 1901 if her family was still living in Wolverhampton?

awwwww... but I can hope a little bit cant I?!  ;)  its been so long already  :D

the Irish theory was not based solely on her singing songs, that was only part of it... there are many letters from my grandfather mentioning she was from ireland, as well as memories from the older children...
As well it was mentioned on a few childrens birth certiticates..

So maybe her parents were irish? anyway.  :)  We shall see how it all goes.  :)

Staffordshire Lookup Requests / Can anyone help? Ward or Phillips families?

My grandmother: Phoebe Ward

So ive just found out that its highly likely that my grandmother was born in Staffordshire in 1920, not ireland as previously thought.. which meant she spent at least 19 of her years there considering she was married in Bilston in 1939..


I was wondering, considering the year is not included in any currently viewable census, whether there is anyway anyone can help with finding out about the family?

I have her family address for when she was married:
2 Livingstone Road,
August 1939.

And she was either born in Wolverhampton or West Bromwich (just awaiting birth certs to confirm which one)...

I have an incling she had an older brother, because there is an S. Ward as a witness, (and Im assuming to be a witness you had to be over 21?).. as well as a Mrs MA Ward (assuming her mum.. again awaiting birth certs).. but there is no S.Ward born in England to the two possible mothers maiden names... so methinks they moved to England from Ireland prior to her being born.

I just want to find out about the family... if she had siblings.. when her parents died (if they died in England)... but I dont know how to do this without the relevant census which wont come out for ages...


Also, Im thinking of trying from the angle of her husbands family PHILLIPS (11 Guy Avenue, Low Hill, Wolverhampton - August 1939)....
