Critchley Almond as far as I am aware, based on all the searching that I have done is the only person to have had this name , therefore one would think that it would be easy to find someone who would know
something from the past about him other than the information that can be accessed on the ancestry sites that are available on-line.
He is my great grandfather and my immediate close family know nothing about him, is this name known to anyone that uses this forum, if anyone has any family history or knows anything about Critchley Almond who was born in Blackburn in 1853 please get in touch.

This is a duplicate post.  You were given info that somebody else has a tree on Ancestry so has an interest in him.  He never married so no other descendants apart from your grandfather who was his illegitimate child

Yes I know that and with respect I don't want to waste anyone's time looking for him in the records, I am trying to find out if there is anyone outside of my family that has any knowledge about him that is known to their family.

Have you checked the Surname Interests board - scroll to bottom of page and link is found under Tools. 

Have you turned up the tree on Ancestry I mentioned in your other post and contacted the owner to check their connection?

I haven't checked the surname interests board yet but I will give it a try.

The tree on Ancestry has been built by my cousins who rightly so are researching our family history, however  in my opinion some the information posted isn't correct so I'm not taking any notice of it.

Yes I have a copy of that story, it was also reported in the Blackburn Times newspaper around the same time when he was about 16.
Thanks for your help.

;D
I think it was illegal gambling on Sunday. "Pitch & Toss"? A lad with my GGF's name (or possibly his cousin) was fined for playing a game of chance in the street. It may have been reported in same newspaper.
