  11. Hi All, Happy Easter to you all and i hope the easter bunny brings you lots of eggs. Ok, now to the good bit . Just had a look at a 1911 census and this street name appeared. 1. I cant make out what it says and 2. does anyone know where it is / was please ? Thanks
  12. There are plenty of 'hole in the roads' in Sheffield mate. Where do you want me to start photographing ? Sorry Neil, could not resist it.
  13. Oh wow, what a gentleman and now i owe you several beers. Thank you so much you are an absolute star sir. Do we have meetings because i mean it about those beers Regards Glynn
  14. Done some quick looking. Alberta was born 1877 Masbro, yorkshire. She went to Sheffield Union Workhouse in 1899 and passed out as a nurse in August 1902. From then it would seem she married in 1904 to a John George Christoffer Tyssen and there the trail goes cold for me i am afraid. But, at least i know somwthing i did not know several hours ago :)
  15. Thank you for your hard work i really do appreciate it Glynn
  16. What a top man, and first attempt. I owe you a very large beer my friend, thank you. I dont suppose she is still there on the 1911 census by any stretch of the imagination ?
  17. Hello All, I am trying to find Alberta A Beckett. Now, Alberta was a trainee hospital nurse at the Sheffield Union Workhouse Infirmary from 1899 to 1902 when she qualified as a nurse on 9th August 1902. I have looked on the 1901 Census under her name and the workhouse but cannot find her. I am obviously doing something wrong, so, i thought i would ask the forum to see if you can help me please? Regards Glynn
  18. Thanks all. Now i know why i cant find it on the maps on the site - because that one is missing, oh well maybe it will materialise one day. Now, how do i find out which house was number 42 Granville lane ? Glynn
  19. Hi everyone, Just a quick question. I have a relative that says they lived on Granville Lane. I have looked in the map section, but cannot find any reference to Granville Lane. Was there such a Lane and if so , where was it please?
  20. Thats it, but i cant make out the name. Just as a point, i tried to click on one of those maps on the site earlier for Sheffield Park #69 and it would not work ?
  21. Is there a Kellys directory for the 1980s ?
  22. I remember Faldings opposite Holme Close, but i cant for the life of me remember the other name of the newsagents
  23. I would think that as a starting point on all your subjects would be the Sheffield Library or Sheffield Archives i know they will be in a position to help you along.
  24. If you come down Walkley lane past the Masons pub on your left and look across the road, i remember a newsagents being there but cannot for the life of me remember the name. I can remember the newsagents was called after the chaps surname. Can anyone help ?
