  1. Do you know when in 1912 she disappeared? Was the report or notice in a local newspaper - I looked but couldn't find it? The Clarkson household would have been in mourning in September when an 11 month-old daughter died in the Children's Hospital. If Ruth was still there she may have reacted to the grief in the household. Do you know Ruth's exact date of birth? I don't know if it will help but some later records (death records, 1939 register) record dates of birth. The Clarksons' address was 47 rather than 42 Carr Road - in 1911 William used a ink stamp to put his address on the census form (one he probably used in his work). The '7' is curvy but it is definitely a 7. I live a few doors further up Carr Rd. I also know a granddaughter of William. Hugh
  2. I have added some notes and finding aids to the first post in this thread, including a complete list of the insurance maps.
  3. Joseph's BATTY grandparents Charles and Clara are buried at City Road. I'm not sure about his WILKINSON grandparents William and Henrietta. William *may* have died in 1916, buried City Road. Henretta *may* have then married John SMITH
  4.

  5. George and Bertha TRIMM were living at 2 Popple Street in 1939! They both died in Rother Valley RD, Bertha in 1972. Bertha's birth date given then as 1 Jul 1894 (wrongly listed as 1893 in 1939) Hugh
  6. The death index lists the birth date of Anthony Peter WENTWORTH as 21 May 1919. His birth entry and marriage of his parents: GRO Births JUN Qtr 1919 PURNOT Florent L (mmn POOLE) Pancras 1b 58 GRO Marriages DEC Qtr 1918 POOLE Edith A (PURNOT) PURNET Florent (POOLE) Pancras 1b 188
  7. Burial in Tinsley Park Cemetery grave CB122gp HAYES Frank bur 12 Ap 1950 aged 2y son of Frank 38 Dane St/Childrens Hosp Sheffield gp=General Portion (denoting the unconsecrated part of the cemetery) This is the only burial in this grave according to the published database. This is a plan at Sheffield Indexers showing the sections in this cemetery http://sheffieldindexers.com/images/TinsleyPark_Cem_1.jpg I believe both Bereavement Services at City Road and Sheffield Archives can provide detailed plans showing individual plots. Hugh
  8. Sheffield Daily Telegraph 14 Jan 1872 ('Retford St' = Radford Street, I think)
  9. (I realise this is an old thread) The church on the same side of Howard Road as the Howard Hotel was the Wesleyan Methodist chapel on the corner of Duncombe St. It's shown in this photo given to the Walkley Historians.
  10. Brilliant! 1905 25" map, from NLS... (spans two sheets)
  11. An earlier reburial. This is from the burial register of Wardsend Cemetery (St Philip's Parish) 6 Apr 1937. I can't tell from the current reconstruction of the plan of the cemetery where exactly this plot might be found in the New Portion above the railway. It could be close to the known site of the reburial of remains from St James'
  12. The Wakefield Prison Register (at Ancestry) doesn't shed light on the circumstances. I think her husband Albert BEATSON had recently completed 8 months hard labour (his 8th conviction. he was convicted at least twice more after 1903. Hugh
  13. The Ollerenshaws also provide a link between two sporting headstones since Francis Ollerenshaw carved this gravestone in Wadsley Churchyard which provoked controversy in 1871 (image source: Wikipedia)
  14. A little probing reveals that the gravestone was carved by F[rancis] Ollerenshaw and Sons. The Henry James Ollerenshaw who gave evidence at the inquest was one of those sons. Another son William also played football with George Beaumont. I like to think they helped prepare the gravestone for their friend.
