  1. There is a 100 year closure on the records, that is why we only transcribed to December 1910. You need to apply to: Catherine Dixon, Medical Records Officer, NHS Sheffield Care Trust, Michael Carlisle House, 75, Osborne Road, Sheffield, S11 9BF. for permission to view the record OR for the archive staff to do paid research for you. The majority of records from 1917 also have a seperate folder with the the case history and a photograph of the person concerned. Angela
  2. Alison. You will have to be more specific on which records you are actually looking for Bowns and Johnson are quite popular names. Angela
  3. The MI's and parish registers have been transcribed by Sheffield & District FHS and are available on disc also including St Pauls at Norton Lees. Christ Church Heeley Parish Records: Baptisms 1848-1909, Marriages 1848- 1902, Burials 1848-1934, Monumental Inscriptions and St Paul Norton Lees Parish Records: Baptisms 1877-1994, Marriages 1877-1981 (includes photographs of churches) £8.75 including postage.
  4. Have you checked the 1841 census to see if these two brothers are still around in Sheffield...? Have you checked out burial registers before 1840 for them. Did they marry in Australia and if so do you have a copy of the marriage certificate with the father's name on.
  5. According to the transcription for Tinsley Park cemetery produced by Sheffield & District FHS. There are 6 burials in this grave. Consecrated Section S grave number 125 Burial date: 16 Sep 1905 Arthur LEDGER aged 11 son of Joshua, 80 Milford Street, Carbrook. I have no idea who this child was but we are looking at a transcription so you would need to check the original burial register available at Sheffield archives. Then we have 3 children of Willie WALKER of 55 Surbiton Street, all buried on the same day.19 Oct 1918 Albert aged 4 Walter aged 5 Margaret aged 6 They are not triplets as they are different ages. Could this be an accident or simply a childhood disease that took them all.? 13 Jul 1946 Florence aged 64 wife of Willie, 55 Surbiton St. 2 Nov 1946 Willie aged 67, labourer of 51 Greasborough Road. From FreeBMD. June 1912 Sheffield reference 9C page 1337 Margaret WALKER mother's maiden name TOSELAND June 1913 Sheffield reference 9C page 1454 Walter WALKER mother's maiden name TOSELAND Sept 1914 Sheffield reference 9C page 1349 Albert WALKER mother's maiden name TOSELAND Angela

  7. Thanks for that, perhaps you could give me some lessons...lol
  8. I remember it, I often used to eat there with the grandchildren. I think it was called the Junction Express. It doesn't seem that many years since it closed. They served a variety of "proper" dinners not fast food and also jacket potatos. When the centre was built in 1988 the internal areas included features such as a waterfall, a river, clock tower elevator and a model railway Angela
  9. The George ALLOTT convicted in 1840 appears to be the correct age to be the son of Thomas and Hannah. These are the baptisms for this family from the Sheffield parish church of SS Peter & Paul, later given cathedral status. 10 Mar 1824 ALLOTT George son of Thomas & Ann, Button Maker of Sheffield born 17 Feb 1824 10 Mar 1824 Sarah dau of Thomas & Ann, Button Maker of Sheffield born 2 Jan 1822 10 Mar 1824 Thomas son of Thomas & Ann Button Maker of Sheffield born 24 Dec 1819 04 Apr 1813 John son of Thomas & Ann Button Maker of Sheffield born 24 Feb 1813 25 Aug 1816 William son of Thomas & Hannah Button Maker of Sheffield born 27 Jul 1816. There is a report in The Sheffield and Rotherham Independent 21 March 1840 re George ALLOTT aged 17.I am not sure how to upload this report. Angela
  10. Before the Births and Deaths registration Act of 1874 a body could be disposed of without a certificate. I have 2 death certificates where the death was registered 7 and 12 days after the burial. 1874 The responsibility for recording a death was placed on a relation of the deceased. The registration had to be supported by a certificate signed by a doctor, and the death had to be registered within 5 days. From 1926 To prevent the irregular disposal of bodies, the Births and Deaths Registration Act of 1926 (Act of 16 & 17 George V, Chapter 48) introduced the requirement for a registrar's certificate or coroner's order to be produced before a burial or cremation could take place. It also required a notice of disposal to be sent to the registrar after the funeral had taken place.
  11. Crookes cemetery is not on the NBI and Sheffield & District FHS have not transcribed it. Where did you get the disc from as I would be interested in buying it. St Thomas graveyard is on the NBI. Angela
  12. Richard. It all depends on what your enquiry was...was it relating to the admission or staff registers?
  13. Hi I have checked on A2A and can find no mention of staff records before 1907. It might be worth emailing the archives with an enquiry, although they are closed until September 5th, they are still answering their emails. Angela
  14. How sure are you that you have the correct certificate? Do you have a birth certificate for a child of this couple that states the mother's maiden name is MOORE. Where are they in the 1871 census back in Manchester or living in Sheffield.?
  15. The index to the admission registers transcribed by myself and 3 others are now available online. The records of Middlewood Hospital (1872 – 1996) are at Sheffield Archives. These include patient admission registers dating back to 1872 which list the names of the many thousands of people who passed through the asylum, detailing ages, occupations and ‘causes of insanity’. The names of all patients admitted to Middlewood Hospital between 1872 and 1910 can be searched using the indexes on the archives site. http://www.sheffield.gov.uk/libraries/archives-and-local-studies/publications/mental-health Angela ================ Edit: link repaired, 10/02/17, SteveHB
  16. On Ancestry there is two medal cards for Joseph Martin BRYAN. One for Pte 16005 Yorks & Lancs The other for Pte 238957 labour corps Joseph Martin BRYAN. These are the same person, he was discharged 11 Dec 1917 and awarded the Silver War Badge, There is a list of Silver War Badge holders at Kew. (The National Archives) The badge was awarded to all of those military personnel who were discharged as a result of sickness or wounds contracted or received during the war, either at home or overseas. The award of the badge was noted on the man's medal index card, usually denoted by "Lis" or "SWB List" followed by a code. The code is the key to the entry in the war badge roll. They tend to be much more informative than the medal rolls, giving date of enlistment, age (sometimes), cause of discharge, whether the man had been overseas and occasionally other details. Angela
  17. The 1851 census shows that Maria is 1 year old and that she was born in Bilston Staffs, there is only one birth registration for a Maria MILLS in 1849/1850. Births Dec 1849 MILLS Maria Wolverhampton 17 305 Bilston was within the Wolverhampton registration district. You could apply for the certificate stating that you only want it issuing if the father is Thomas. You can find a full list of the areas within the Wolverhampton registration district here http://www.ukbmd.org.uk/genuki/reg/districts/wolverhampton.html This link tells you how to apply for the birth certificate http://www.wolverhampton.gov.uk/community_living/life_events/births/registration/ Angela

  19. Hi. The actual admission registers give more information including parent's names, and why the child was admitted. Makes very interesting reading. If you give me their names I'll film the admissions when I'm next at the local studies,(if you are still in NZ) as the archives are closed. I might have to order the books from where they have stored them and this requires 10 days notice. Angela
  20. The House of Help for young girls was located at 1 Paradise Square, these are the records that were transcribed by Sheffield & District FHS Angela
  21. There are lockers in the local studies section to lock your bags in. I always use these.

  24. Not exactly correct...the church marriage registers (original not a transcription as provided by the GRO) are deposited at the archives and you can get a copy marriage certificate from the fiche for 20p, or for free if you take your digital camera and photograph the original. The archives are closed until late next summer, but the film and fiche have been transferred to the local studies library on Surrey Street and are available, The original deposited registers will be available from Jan 4th
