The Common Room / Re: 1921 census
« on: Sunday 16 January 22 10:08 GMT (UK)  »
The latest issue of WDYTYA magazine has an article about the census, part of which says that many family historians will find their ancestors were not at home on census day but in a hotel or guest house due to it being carried out in the summer.

Technical Help / Re: Canon Scanner/Printer

I hesitate to suggest it since it is printing and photocopying but if it was me I would unistall  the drivers and start from scratch installing again.

I wondered whether it was the Fire Brigade. In days gone by many organisation and companies had bands but I cannot seem to find many photographs relevent to Leeds. The cap badge would probably be the best thing to try and identify.

I think the second entry is actually U/T Pilot as in under training pilot.

I think it is Dunn as well, took a look at FindMyPast and it agrees.

Yorkshire (West Riding) / Re: John and Susan Bumby died 1858

The company that owned the cemetery went into voluntary liquidation in 1967 and in 1968 the majority of headstones and memorials were removed, none of the bodies were exhumed. I believe relatives were compensated for the loss of their graves. It is now called St. Georges Field as within the campus of Leeds University. As a child I would visit most weekends with my grandmother and it was a fascinating, scary place, visiting now it seems much smaller than I remember it being.

Perhaps it is L for ploughman but I am not sure ploughs were around then.

What about his place of birth as Sligo, does that fit?

I cannot read the offence but he seems to have appeared in court at York, I think the amount he could have paid was 10s 6d and not 16s 6d. I hope someone can work out what the offence was because I would love to know as well.
