Aberdeenshire / Cafe Buildings, Shiprow
« on: Thursday 12 April 18 20:03 BST (UK)  »
The certificates for several of my family show that they were married (at the end of the 19th/start of the 20th century) at Cafe Buildings, Shiprow in Aberdeen. I have searched but cannot find where about on the Shiprow this might have been. Does anyone know where Cafe Buildings were located? Or (pushing my luck) have a photograph?

Thank you very much for posting this excellent memory and for the link to the impressive details of the battle. My Great Uncle William Taylor (25) was also in the AIF (16th B) and he was killed on 28th September 1917. His death is Remembered on the Menin Gate.

It is so very difficult to find details of where individuals were involved and where they lost their lives - your your post gives me some hope of finding someone who might have had a relative who might have known of my Great Uncle or know what happened that following week when William died.

I know the Australian records are much better than the ones here in the UK and are in themselves something to be proud of.  My Great Grandparents sent six sons to War and it is impossible to find the details for four of them.  Perhaps you might appreciate my concern....

For your information, I repeat the post on William (which I have copied to the Aberdeen Press and Journal in Scotland and the West Australian in Perth).

WILLIAM TAYLOR 1892-1917 - Remembered with Honour at the Menin Gate Memorial

In Memory of my Great Uncle, Private William Taylor, born Aberdeen, son of John and Jessie Taylor, the fifth of their 12 children (six sons enlisted in WW1).  William emigrated to Australia in 1911, joined the Australian Imperial Force, 16th Infantry Battalion, in December 1915, married Jane Palmer Payne on Australia Day, January 1916 and eight weeks later, joined his regiment. William fell at Menin Road, Ypres, on 28th September 1917.  William was dearly missed by his parents and family in Aberdeen and Australia. His loving wife Janie died in 1980 aged 86, having never remarried.

I hope if you get some time, that perhaps you may be able to help with what happened when William died and perhaps even to think that the lads knew one another.  I don't think William ever met any of his brothers during the conflict.

With grateful thanks.

Richard Taylor

And there is Murcar Links Golf Course - as others have said, I think Murker is Murcar, just north of Aberdeen.

Australia / Re: Mary Ann Taylor

Thank you. Yes, that is the Mary Ann Taylor I am searching and, as you say, I am particularly interested in her travel to Australia (e.g. what date, which ship) and her life immediately afterwards. Thank you for the links to the records, which have identified a year of marriage and the birth of children. Any other information would be very gratefully received.

Australia / Mary Ann Taylor
« on: Thursday 27 April 17 13:52 BST (UK)  »
I am looking for information on Mary Ann Taylor born in Aberdeen in 1861  and died Mary Ann Dunn in Perth, Australia, I think in 1944. She was my Great Grandfather's sister and I am interested in finding out how and when she travelled to Australia - and anything else about her life and family.

Aberdeenshire / Rev Henry W Bell
« on: Friday 03 March 17 15:46 GMT (UK)  »
I am looking for any information on Rev Henry W Bell, Minster of the High Free Church of Scotland in Aberdeen. I understand that Henry Bell was born in Poona c. 1838, attended Glasgow University, was married four times and died in Dunoon in 1923. I am interested in his life in Aberdeen at the end of the 19th century and any information would be very helpful.
