Hi David & Lois
When I checked out Grange Road cemetary in Meols, West Kirby.
I was able to establish details of the the grave of my Gt.Grandfather,
including who owned the grave, by dealing with Landican.
I have the feeling that they may be the administrative centre for the
graveyards on the Wirral.
The Telephone No for Landican is or was:-0151-677-2361
Hope this helps

I am searching for information about a ELLEN HACKING, born March 1, 1828 in
Thess Lyneer, England. (Is that Lancashire??) She died December 23, 1893

born in 1831 in Oldham, England. He died September 8, 1887 in Leigh.
Anyone know about Thess Lyneer??

> Jayne: Sorry about the death of your grandmother.
Well said about not waiting till the last. So many don't want to discuss the past
and don't show any interest or co-operation with those doing research, but by
knowing the past and what are ancestors did and have, I feel should make us
appreciate more of what we have, especially in the way of technology. Just think
of the means available today for doing research, without even leaving your home.
So many good friends and people on the mailing lists willing to help.
I can't seem to get either one of my two daughters interested. One especially.
Haven't even found anyone so far on the web researching the ECROYD name, but so
thankful for those of you who have responded with information.

Can sks tell me what information, if any, is available regarding the
cotton industry in Preston in the early 1800's.
According to a family source my ggggf, John WATSON, b 1751/3, "a
merchant of Preston, worked the first steam cotton mill in Preston, in
partnership with his son, John, until the business failed in 1807".
Same source says John Snr died 17 Apr 1830, and that his tombstone is
in St John's Preston churchyard. Can sks also confirm this?
How do I go about tracing his Will?
Could some kind lister answer a query for me ? My grandather Charles HINTON was born at 3.50 pm on 15th October 1872. His twin Alice was born at 4.40 pm same date. I have both birth certificates and on hers n m is written before the time of birth. Could this mean that she was stillborn? I have not been able to trace a death certificate for her.
I am back on the list after computer problems being solved. The pesky thing crashed after I had posted an interest in William TRAVIS, believed born USA in 1884 but a British citizen. He married Alice Ann POOL in Rochdale in 1908. If anyone tried to contact me and I have not replied, apologies, and please resend via the list.
Have just watch the 2000 display from London on New Zealand TV.They
certainly did England proud with their display.My husband who has watch
all the coverage from around the world said it was the best by far.Just
waiting for America now.
As you can see New Zealand made it okay and best of all my computer did.

Hi Sylvia and all Lancs folks, where ever you may be. All went well here in
Australia for the change over. No bugs so far of note. Anset Airlines found
problem with car park boom gates before midnight and that was fixed; also a
few bus companies, Tasmania and South Australia and somewhere else found
problems with their ticketing machines, I don't think there was actually
much of a problem. Officially a very smooth change over. If any problems now
they expect it to be seen when workers return to work on 4th, but no other
major problems are forseen. Perfect sunny summers morning here for 1st
January. Hope the sun shines and the bugs don't bite, where you are.
Regards, Christine. Tasmania
