I realized afterwards that it was William born December, not Walter anyway, hmmmm....but Walter does change his birth month a bit in above entries....argh...where are these boys in 1901?

I got 'em in 1901!

RG13/3320 Folio 28 Page 7

Cheshire, Styal
District Chorlton Union Cottage Homes

Walter LEYFIELD age 5
William LEYFIELD Age 10
both born in Manchester.

The problom might be that it says that almost all of the children on the page were born in Manchester....this doesn't seem likely!

Off to look for LEYFIELD

Cheers
