Not to be relied upon for serious genealogy :D

Newton Heath FC nearly went bankrupt in 1902.
Rescued by 4 local businessmen, and renamed Manchester United.

Nearest coastline probably at Bridport, some 14 miles away.

So Dorset a likely resting place?

An example of a Manx baptism register, showing mother's maiden names.

We are better catered for in the Isle of Man ;)
Children's baptisms invariably mention the mother's maiden name.

It was also very common for women's burials to include the maiden name as an alias.

FindMyPast also transcribed:
1939 National Register
1911 Census
1901 Census

None of these were free to FindMyPast subscribers at the time.
It's their usual business model, attempting to reclaim the costs of the transcriptions.
