One of my late gt grandad's was also a horse keeper for the steel works, but he lived in a cottage - unable to remember the name  :( but the cottage was located near to where the old Grangetown fire station was, I think now it is Fire Extinguisher factory or some such thing.

I have enjoyed this thread, also born in the Boro, but lived in Marske all my life

Hi and welcome to Roots

Have you tried to find a death certificate for the baby?

I'm not sure on the Leeds area, but I know in Middlesbrough, when babies were stillborn, they were quite often buried in a grave with a adult.  The baby would just be placed within the coffin.  It was high lighted a few years ago and now nearly all the babies graves have been marked in some way.

I would imagine the best way to find out would be find the local cemetery/graveyard and ask in the office, or contact the council for the area, under bereavement services.

Good luck

Before my Gt Aunt died five years ago, I used to visit her and she would tell me tales of the family, I would scribble the details down on anything to hand and rush home and start looking for the facts.  Aunt Olive was always correct with her facts and then one day she started to tell me about when her parents had died and she was given the family bible and the old grandfather clock... her brother, who lived with her and her late husband decided there was no room for them so chopped the clock up and made a bonfire and the last thing to go on the fire was the family bible  >:( :-[ :-[ 

I would have given my left arm to have just read what was written, but alas it's never to be.

I always keep my eyes open for them in charity and  antique shops.

Enjoy if you have one

Have you tried the local paper Evening Gazette for photographs, also Francis Frith has some. 

My mum has a large collection of books bought from the gazette office, I am sure they will be an Eston one amongst them.  Unfortunately I am house bound at the moment and will be for another month or so, but will try and get a copy of the Eston one and have a look.
