Law & Clegg in Rochdale
« on: Monday 17 September 07 06:08 BST (UK) »
Hi All

I'm trying to find any living rellies of Fred Law described below.  Any relations would be through his siblings, he had three brothers and a sister. The sister married a Clegg.  I have detailed all I know.  The reason I hear you ask.  There is a chap in Belgium (Flanders Fields) who's birthday is the same day that Fred died (I don't think he was born on the same day, but you know what I mean) and he found Fred's lonely grave and he wants to get in touch with a relative to honour Fred's contribution to his homeland.

Fred Law served in the 13th Btn, King's Royal Rifle Corps, R/3444. He was born in Rochdale c.1888 and died aged 29 on 03/07/1917 at Wytschate, near Messines, he is buried at Messines Ridge.

His next of kin was given as a sister Mrs M. A. Clegg of 118, Belfield Rd. Rochdale.
Parents and siblings I have identified are:

Father:   James Law  b.  Healey, Rochdale c1843.
Mother:   Alice           b.  Yorkshire c1844.

Siblings:   Mary Alice   b.  Rochdale  c1868
   Thomas       b.  Rochdale c1870 
                John Walker b.  Healey, Rochdale c1872
                 Robert  b.   Healey, Rochdale  c1876
                FRED            b.   Rochdale c1888

Sister Mary Alice Law is missing from the family in the 1881 census. She was living/visiting? with this family close by...
528 Whitworth Rd,Spotland.
Thomas Ogden. 45   Butcher.   b.Spotland.
Betty       (wife)  44                 b........"
Edmund   (son)  18  Butcher.    b.     "
Mary Alice Law (Niece) 13 scholar. b.   "
(UKBMD have a marriage, again at Healey Church..1858 Thomas Ogden to Betty Law – could be a relative)

Of Fred’s siblings Mary Alice married Schofield Norman Clegg at Christ Church Healey in 1890.
In 1891 they were living on Whitworth Road
In 1901 at Middle Healey, Rochdale with children Ernest aged 9, James Law Clegg aged 6 and Mary Ann aged 4mths.

Thomas could have married, but living with parents in 1891 aged 21 but not in 1901.

John Walker still living with parents in 1901 aged 29.

Robert still living with parents in 1901 aged 25.

Just as an aside – maybe not connected – this person was living at the following address in 1929

J. Schofield Clegg
4 Keighley Road, Colne
Same address up to 1936.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

Whoops, partly my mistake, senior moment I'm afraid.

I only e-mailed the bloke who runs the Milnrow site.  What I should have done I now realise is e-mail the bloke who runs the site where the Clegg Hall article is.  Different bloke.   :-[

I have now done that.   ::)
