Electoral register
« on: Tuesday 18 August 15 13:23 BST (UK) »
Trying to find address for someone now long gone. Home was demolished as part of Manchester slum clearance. Been to Central Library archives but they say unless I have store name it would be difficult.
Reason I'm looking is the person was very dear to me. She died when I was a child.
I'm hoping the archives have a photo of the stree if I can name it.
No family left to ask
All I remember is she was called Nellie Momo and lived in the All Saints area. I remember it being near Where contact theatre is now.
Any ideas how to find what I'm looking for? All advice great fully received. Hazel

I can only find one Nellie Momo death but not sure it fits with the person you are searching for  :-\

Nellie Momo, born 22 May 1894, Nov.1992 Manchester district

Added- I see that you've got another thread looking for information- really best to use one topic looking for information so we don't duplicate searches, etc. I also see that you've had this death information since 2013  ::)

ok found the area you are talking about, try this link, it gives the streets around where you are talking about, ok a bit earlier than your time frame but hopefully the names hadn't changed much http://maps.nls.uk/geo/explore/sidebyside.cfm#zoom=17&lat=53.4634&lon=-2.2330&layers=171&right=BingHyb

Manchester City Council have maps of the area concerned and they will copy to you. It is on the edge of Hulme and that is where I was born - they sent me a map dated 1883 which was mainly accurate up to 1960's when the slum clearance started.

On the council website they have loads of photos of many of the streets that were demolished taken by the local history society in conjunction with a photographic society. I was lukcy enough to get one of my street with my house showing!!

I think that there was a lot of redevelopment of that area during the 1960s. Could a local paper help you out?
Even an obituary, if it gave the name of the funeral directors, then perhaps their records could pinpoint the address.
What about telephone directories? There are a lot of telephone directories on "Ancestry"
Threlfall (Southport), Isherwood (lancs & Canada), Newbould + Topliss(Derby), Keating & Cummins (Ireland + lancs), Fisher, Strong& Casson (all Cumberland) & Downie & Bowie, Linlithgow area Scotland . Also interested in Leigh& Burrows,(Lancashire) Griffiths (Shropshire & lancs), Leaver (Lancs/Yorks) & Anderson(Cumberland and very elusive)
