« on: Monday 10 June 24 22:07 BST (UK) »
Hi I'm looking an article in local newspapers about my grandad. Born 1903 Frederick Kavanagh lived Edge Hill Liverpool. Lost his arm when he was a child. A cart or carriage went over it after jumping on the back a the vehicle. There maybe nothing but thought I'd see if someone would be kind enough to check aswell.

Contact the county archives and ask them to search local newspapers;  not all are available on the internet yet.

That's a useful link garstionite
Am going to enjoy perusing next week

Thanks for sharing

Hope chippy finds something there
Might be worth giving parents names too as the child may not have been named

Thanks everyone I will keep looking. I just assuming it was in papers but I'd be shocked it wasn't.
