  10. Hi John Yes that's her Mother and Father and possibly Emma on the other census. Many thanks for looking Togger
  11. Hi Voldy, All the other Census and her marriage certificate say she was born in Sheffield so not sure about the Horbury narrative. Although interestingly the 1871 Census does have her down as living in Sheffield as a servant....coincidence?
  12. Good evening all, Emma Hirst b1849 Sheffield. Father Matthew Hirst & Mother Mary Hirst nee Schofield. I can find Emma on the 1851, 71, 81, 91, 1901 & 1911 but she evades me on the 1861 Census. Can someone please have a look with a fresh pair of eyes please? Many thanks all
  13. Thank to everyone for their help and now i have a good idea of where the road was. Picture Sheffield have a great image of the street. Now, does anyone know when the housing in the Sheffield Park district was originally built, such as Bungay Street area off South Street? Or, who would keep this information in Sheffield, would it be archives, planning or Central Library? Does anyone know
  14. Hi Edmund, That's great thank you i at least know where the street is now. As for numbering, well i am sure we will be able to work it out somehow. Once again many thanks

  16. Hello Hugh, Many thanks for the link. I can find Whites Directories but I cant find the 1901 though?

  18. Evening all, I have just received a death certificate that states death was at South Yorkshire Asylum 1922 and has intrigued me. So, I clicked on the link above, but to no avail. Are these records still available to search online does anyone know please?
  19. Ohhhh I like the overlap, that's clever and gives a real impression of where we are at. Many thanks Togger
  20. So, school lane was behind the Plumpers Inn or first left after the pub? My Great, Great Grandmothers death Inquest was held in the Plumpers Inn by the Coroner Mr D Wightman on 2nd May 1899. I am trying to put together a visual image of the area surrounding her tragic death. All of your input has gone a long way to achieving this and for that I thank you all. Now, any chance there is a photo of 10 & 11 School Lane? Thanks once again to all of you
  21. Thanks you guys. Now all I require is an image (dream on)
  22. Cheeky screen grab lol, I don't know what you mean Thanks for the info
  23. Thanks Edmund & Voldy for the link but difficult to see with the blue filter on the page. Do you think that the central library would have maps that I would be allowed to look at and copy?
