  1. Thanks everyone for all the detective work. I suspect, as we seem to agree that it is taken in the late 1920's - early 1930's, that it is either 163 Tyler St or 1 Attercliffe Common. Thanks again for all the interest. Maybe one day a period photo will turn up of these areas for comparison.
  2. Also thanks for the view of Tea gardens area. Emma was there during WW2 living with her son Walter and his family. They got bombed out according to family history.
  3. Thanks everyone so far for all the comments. Well spotted Steve - I'd never noticed the chap in the window! I will try and ID him. Emma was married to Percy Manning - a clerk in various iron works and at one point a travelling rep for steelworks (I presume) He died 1926 aged 61. This may be him in the window which would give us a date of around 1925. I'll look into it some more. Please keep your comments coming. It certainly is a distinctive terraced house with that spindlework and no front door on the right hand side
  4. Does anyone recognise this location in Sheffield? Late 1920's/early 30' I'd guess. A nice bit of woodwork detail. It may well be demolished but if not someone may know it. This is my great granny Emma Manning. I've looked at some of the addresses they lived at around this period: Emmet Carr Lane in Renishaw and other addresses around Renishaw. But more likely Sheffield so: 1 Attercliffe Common. Freedom Road. 163 Tyler Street. Teagarden Terrace (bombed out in WW2) 5 Olive Terrace (Loxley) But this may be somewhere different, a friends' house perhaps or an address we don't know.
  5. Dear John Thanks very much for this kind help. None of the above seem to be 'our' Fred. I'll keep looking. Charlie was my grandfather and I've got his service record. All the best.
  6. Thanks again for this information. I also found my great aunt Hilda Manning. Does anyone know if these graves might still be standing - with an informative headstone? Frederick John the husband of Hilda Manning may well be buried in 3830 and Emma Manning in 4033 with Percy but as both spouses died in the late 1940's they won't show on the online records. What does the term mean 'removed from Brightside Parish' ? Many thanks MANNING, Percy (Timekeeper, age 61).

  7. Thanks very much for this. You found their son Reg too which is of great interest. Presume this means they were in same grave. Mick
  8. I'm trying to track down the service record of my great uncle Frederick John Manning (born 1897 Eckington) but have not got his army service number or his regiment so am having difficulty. I suspect it was the Royal Field Artillery as his brother joined the RFA in 1914 and I think they joined up together although Fred was only 17. Does anyone know if there are other local records available, for example newspaper reports or housing lists in which I might find some reference to him, his regiment and even his service number. I know he went to live at 61 Tyler St after getting married in 1923. Any advice welcome. Mick
  9. I'd be interested to hear from any of my grandfather's siblings' descendants. He was Charlie Manning and his mum and dad (my grt grandparents) were Percy Manning and Emma Manning (nee Salmon) They lived in various parts of Sheffield and Renishaw in the late 1800s and early 1900's. Charlie's brothers' (Gordon, Fred and Walter) descendants I have made contact with (and shared ancestor portrait images going back to the 18th C) but would love to make contact with the descendants of Florrie or Nellie Manning Born 1891 and 1892 Eckington. Emma's parents kept a Grocer's shop in Renishaw and were John and Elizabeth Salmon. PS ... and Brian M if you read this drop us a line I've lost your address and phone number - sorry! Mick
  10. Hello I'm looking for my great grandfather's burial. Percy Manning (died 1926) and I would like to know if his wife Emma Elizabeth (nee Salmon) was later buried with him when she passed away in the 1940's. Any advice welcome. Mick
