    Many Thanks Janice & Mike. Now have the census details for 1911, 1901, 1891 (250 numbers) 1881, 1871 and 1861 if the re-numbering is correct (120's). No point looking up 1851 or 1841 if no house numbers. Peter

    Thank you Mike. Checked the 1881 census and it makes sense to me. With the info from Janice regards 1861 and 1871 census records using the names Saxelby and Minshull got Bloomsbury St. but does not go as far as numbers needed as per your last posting. Minshull was the landlord of the Turks Head...

    So what would numbers 251, 253, 255. 257 have been before 1884? I believe that these were built around about 1840 but how numbered? Peter

    Trying to search the census records for one particular address. So far have only had success with 1901, 1911 and 1939 (Register). Just inputing the address (in full) without other details always results in failure. Problem of course is I can't put any details regarding names etc. (the reason for...

Worcestershire Regiment and was KiA 21.10.1914. Have had no luck with 1891 or 1901 census returns. Details from Soldiers died...

There was a daughter (Emily) but do not know husbands name (possibly Samuel?). A son named Samuel died in WW1 (1914). May have...

    Hi Paul, What is your interest with the 2nd Worcesters? The first person you met, Mark, I think I may know and have had some exchange of info with previous. I could check my data regards the grandfather of Charlie if you have his name. Regards Peter
