Thanks for the info Gortonboy, ordered a photo of the grave last night at £6.50 with p.p. I am intrigued how a young Welsh boy can cop it, whilst training before he's even seen active service, perhaps a little too realistic war games ?? ::).

Thanks again, Peter.

Hi Irene,

Many thanks for a very good effort despite the lack of quality you had to work with, which was not a lot :-[ as the lack of interest shows.

Again many thanks for your time and effort ;)

Hi Linda,

I have all the census returns from 1841-1911 which paint a good picture, any information since then on the family or dwellings would be appreciated, like when built and by whom or any plans still in existence would also be good, any old maps from the census periods would also be good to have, ;)

Again many thanks for your interest ;D

Good day to all,

Any info appreciated Re/ the Bowden family lived 1841 - 1911 in Mellor, Derby, James and then son Benjamin farmed the area, I am just as interested in the history of the dwellings they lived in including, Drake Carr, Broad Carr, Cross Gates and Lower Cliffe.

Any information very much appreciated.

Thanks and Regards, ;D
