Just in case u you haven't found it yet.  If you go to the bottom of any RootsChat page in the brown section under Your Tools you will find a section called "Surname Interests" - this is where you can add your surname of interest and check if others have a listing.  Always a useful link to check for people with same interests.

In 1911 Mary's place of birth is shown as  Kilmaty, Co Sligo, and John's as Keighley.

GRO Index gives 3 John Finan births registered 1889-1891, all in Lancashire

Wondering why this has been posted in Lancashire when Keighley is in Yorkshire?

Can find no details of a son Thomas, nor can I find WW1 death details for him matching what has been posted.

For other helping, the elder brother was named Michael, not Thomas!
