1929 directory has:
73 Shrewsbury street, Old Trafford.
John T Smith
Sanitary engineer               


So looks like if it is the correct family, they stayed put for a few years then?

Just logged on after work and found your additional posts.  You are an absolute star!!  I ordered the marriage certificate for Nellie and William Naylor last night to verify that you have found the right family.  I feel sure you have as I know from a newspaper clipping I have that my granddads family were at 73 Shrewsbury St in 1916.

I don't know how you folks manage to find all this info, this is the second time I have asked for help and have not been let down.

Can't thank you enough.  :-*

Sorry not to reply before now, didn't realise you had replied.  The cutting I have is from the Manchester Evening News dated Jan 16 1918.  It reads 'The parents of Jack Smith, who lives at 73, Shrewbury St, Old Trafford, have received news that their son has been awarded the Military Medal. He is an old scholar of the Cornbrook Park Wesleyan Day School, Old Trafford.'  I do intend to find out more about his war record as I have three medals of his from the 14-18 war.  But that will be another story . . .

I actually wanted to let you know the certificate proved you had the right family, father's name, residence, witnesses James MacDonald and Dora Winifred, all correct.  I have even found a Naylor living in Knutsford so I've written on the off chance!

Thanks again  :)

Just as an aside Mr Migky.  I started a post to find out about my granddad's medals and got directed to the Manchester Regiment Group forum, I see you contribute there as well!

I am losing hours reading lots of posts and think you guys are all fantastic to give your time like you do.

I'm still waiting to see if my letter gets a reply, if not I'll have to start looking for the next sibling down the list!!

Regards,
Fred  :)
