World War Two / HMS Avenger WW2
« on: Sunday 22 November 20 21:20 GMT (UK)  »
My father in law FX86475 James Parkes (From Manchester) served aboard HMS Avenger when the carrier was sunk on 15/11/1943.

My mother in law has never seen a photo of her dad James so we would appreciate any advice how we could gather further information and ideally although not optimistic of finding a photo of him.

Any info or suggestions welcome......

Lancashire / Shop Keeper Details - Chortlon on Medlock / Longsight, Manchester
« on: Wednesday 18 March 20 14:47 GMT (UK)  »
There was a corner shop on Richmond Grove East in Longsight / CoM in the 60s I believe my granddad used to own / run.

He was called Joe MacKinnon.

I cam across an old photo from 1965 of a corner shop on Richmond Grove East / Morton Street and wondered if that was the one.

Is there any way of finding out such info online folks???

Thanks in anticipation....

I'm trying to identify date when my dad Richard Price was Christened at St George`s Church Hulme Manchester.

He was born 31/5/1938 to Thomas Price and Margaret Price nee Almond.

Any info appreciated.

Lancashire Lookup Requests / Missing Family!!! Hulme Manchester
« on: Monday 02 October 17 18:16 BST (UK)  »
Alfred James Price B 1858  & Thomas Price B 1855 to John & Mary Price feature in 1861/71 census living in Hulme Manchester but I cant find any of them in 1881 census... I believe their dad John died in Withington Workhouse by 1880......given they lived next to Hulme Barracks I suppose they could have enlisted after their Dad died.....seems strange.....
