I have been recapping on Lucy Yates a bar maid whose family ran the Grapes Inn and member pinefamily sent me a link to it back in 1916.  Having found some more information on my family Gleave I came back to find the link you had sent me.  Unfortunately it doesn't work anymore so I can't find her name at the pub when she married my great-grandfather Ellis Gleave in 1900.  They lived in Ancoats in 1900. Any help appreciated.

Thanks very much to both KGarrad and Comberton.  I love the idea that my relative lived in a Potato Pie Shop.  My relative Ellis Gleave lived at No 5 and the widow he married was at No 11.  In 1901 they were living in Mill Street, Ancoats.  All the information starts to paint a picture.  Thanks again.

Lancashire Lookup Requests / Manchester Address of Vesta Street

I have been looking for the Manchester address of Vesta Street where some of my descendants lived in 1900 both at numbers 5 and 11.  I can't find anything about it online, its all advertising for the new waterside homes so I presume Vesta Street was near the canal and must have been pulled down by now.  A picture of how it used to be would be nice if anyone has one.  Appreciate any help.

I am trying to research my uncle Leonard Scholes who was in the Navy in WW2 at the above place which I believe is now called Fort Siloso, Singapore.  I have photos taken in 1945 but can find no records of him being in Singapore or for that matter anywhere, all I know he was in the Navy in the Far East.
Can anyone point me in the right direction?
