Thanks very much for the replies, some great information and lots to look into.

Ancestry only has limited details of his war record so will look into findmypast as I've got a few other relatives from WW1 who should have been in the army but don't show up.

I'm currently trying to pick through the 1871 census of district 29 in Preston - the Canal Street area - but it's full of errors so taking a while. In time I might be able to help others on here.

Between 60% and 70% of WW1 records were lost in a fire in WW2, so if you donít find records for your other relatives that is probably the reason why.
