Graveyards and Gravestones / Re: Ford Cemetery - Liverpool
« on: Tuesday 02 October 12 00:55 BST (UK)  »
Hi Denis, from looking at the grave map sections, the nearest that looks like it is: JL. Also looking at it if it was an S then it would be more curved at the end instead of straight. A slight comparison can be made with the J on John. Thats what i'd be inclined to go with.

If you haven't searched for graves before its helpful to note that the sections and numbers are marked (generally) on the back of the stones. Sometimes on the sides. Some dont include them. The plot numbers go up in numbers along the rows of the section they are in so you are able to track the headstone - or if one is missing, almost the exact spot your ancestor is buried as a patch of grass between headstones.
public graves are different but the maps suggest it is a private section.

As to finding the sections, its helpful to get your barings from the main entrance using the map & follow the paths around. the grave numbers will tell you the section you are in if you are stuck.

I hope that helps & is the sort of information you are after.
Good luck in finding Peter this time.


Armed Forces / Re: 22nd (The Cheshire) Regiment, 2nd Battalion

Hi noytd, I dont know if you are able to make it, but would recommend visiting the 22nd regiment museum. You can see a lot of the uniforms on display, & contains a variety of information up to the present day:

There is also a book for the British army around that time but haven't found a link as yet. It may be worth having a search for. You can find it in waterston*s etc

Sorry I have nothing concrete for you but hope this helps,

Hi, here is a plan of Ford:
It seems like Section AS is on the right as you enter the graveyard. It is not a public area but like you suggest may not have a headstone.

I presume this may be the contact number for above, this is the Roman Catholic Cemeteries Board no: 0151 522 1017, who may be able to help.

a note: do not pay for accessing any records as ringing the number above you can find out information for free.

Hope this helps,


Armed Forces / Re: Merchant Navy record at Kew

Hi Ruth, I hope you will find this of some help.

The National Archives in conjunction with Find My Past have released the Merchant Navy records from 1918-1941.

I think the ones they've released are CR1 CR2 and CR10 which include photographs. I found my great great grandafather photograph in one yesterday.

The search I did produces a Harold/Harry Samson, I hope that one at least is who you are looking for.
Best of luck in your search.

I echo the message sent above. Having been used to using forums, it wasn't that clear that I had to reply to posts to write a PM. But this post is for that purpose.

Hi Lisa,

There is a result for a death index for roger on freebmd:

Deaths: March quarter of 1841
Walsh, Roger   Blackburn Volume: 21 Page: 39

You could then order his death certificate from the GRO if you find no other routes.

hope that helps x
