Hello Anna and welcome!!

Frederick Eheim married Caroline Weiss 1884 in Sheffield.

On the 1911 Census he gives his birthplace as Künzelsau.

I assume they are "your" pork butchers but without more information such as christian names, birth dates, etc. it will be difficult to help you.

Kind regards
Gill

Hi Anna,
I come from Chesterfield where my German pork butcher ancestor lived.  In searching through Chesterfield Census data came across the following pork butchers.
Krammer, Augusta
Kraut, George William
Studer, Frederick
Baum, Thomas
Boam, Christopher
Chevin, John
I see Kraut is one of your names.  Try putting a search on each census from 1851 onwards with place of birth, Germany.  Don't use Wuerttemberg to begin with because the recorded spelling 'beggars belief' the enumerators wrote down what they heard!  With the place they lived as Yorkshire or Derbyshire you should get a short list of all those born in Germany.

Hope this helps

Carol Woodhouse

Hi

Many thanks. I should have said. I am new to roots chat. Been doing the tree for about 30 years now.  I have these names and am keen to see how many descendants are still around.

Thanks Anna

Hallo Anna

I have these names and am keen to see how many descendants are still around.

It is not possible on this forum to give information on living persons.

Kind regards

I am trying to get in touch with Richard Funk who posted on the old topic.  I have sent a personal message but no reply.  Has anyone heard from him recently.  I have a photograph of a Mr Funk from Sheffield who was an internee in the First World War and am trying to find out exactly who he was.  I am a researcher for Borders Family History Society and we are doing a project on Stobs Camp where this Mr Funk was held before going on to the Isle of Man.

Thank you very much Gill. I am sure he will be able to tell me which Mr Funk this is on the photo writing to his wife in Sheffield.

Hello Barbara,
SwissGill informed me about your query dealing with the Funk internee at Stobs Camp. Now I found the page of the new thread. It seems as if Richard Funk didn't get a message about your post as the predecessor of the thread was locked after 69 pages and one probably has to begin posting here again personally before getting informed about other people's posts. I have Richard's email address and will inform him.
Best wishes
