Thank you very much for your help, I am hoping his death certificate comes today!  He seems to have been a bigamist!  It is the first time I have found one, when researching my family tree! 


Kind regards

Hi everybody - who kindly helped me find Andrew ASHCROFT, I have just received his death certificate.

He Died 9 Dec 1878 at 26 Oak Tree Place Tranmere.  He was 38 and Nut and Bolt maker.  Died of Phthisis 3 months Fever 14 days,  Cert W. B. Plelan LRCP  - 'Informant' Mary ASHCROFT Widow of deceased, present at death 26 Oak Tree Place Tranmere Reg 10 Dec 1878 - John Langley Registrar.

My mum in law Doris ASHCROFT was in Hospital for 6 months with TB in her 20's!

With the address given I think that he would be buried in Bebington cemetery. That opened in 1868. ALot of people from Tranmere where buried there.
There are another 2 possibilities a churchyard in New Ferry and Christchurch in Bebington.

I'll have a look later in the week when the library opens.

Hi Noreen

Here are the details for Mary in 1881. I went through my discs looking for the address.

Transcribed under Oscroft.

That is wonderful and very helpful.  I ran the wheel of my office chair over my Cheshire disk and have written to our local Latter Day Saints for another with a £5.00 cheque.  That was 2 weeks ago, I wonder if they would have to get another one from Salt Lake City for me? 

It was extremely clever of you to think of the address.  I found Sarah and Andrew  who were missing in 1881 by looking for Andrew by Christian name, age, and place of birth in Hull.  He was WALLACE!   Still WALLACE in 1891.

I am tracing a tree for a friend who is descended from Andrew Wallace/Sarah Driver through their daughter Eliza Agnes, so Sarah's previous history makes interesting reading.
Coming at this from another direction I have had no problem tracing Andrew/Sarah post 1881, but Andrew's existence pre-1881 is proving harder. I wonder whether the claims about his father (Richard) on his marriage certificate are true.
