in the 1940s and my dad was buried under rubble for 2 days owing to the bombings before they got him out, hoping someone can help me with searching the family thanks

Hi, Cliff,

The dates you are looking at are not good for research, too recent for there to be much on Ancestry or online, hopefully descendants of the family will see this and get in touch and help.

You probably will know this information, the 12 children were registered in Birkenhead between 1927 and 1939, yourself I think being the last.

Peter and Dorothy were married 1925, Our Lady St Nicholas St Anne, Liverpool.

Beaufort St is Liverpool, Birkenhead has Beaufort Rd and had, Beaufort Square, now demolished.

Beaufort Square more likely I think.
Beaufort Sq does not show in the 1938 directory, not sure the exact date of it being built.

Hi Thank you for your reply,
It was my dad that was born in 1939 and yes he was the last one, I am Clifford his son, because he moved to Wakefield in the 60s following my mum who was also from Birkenhead Joan Elsie jones nee Gibbens, There was not much contact with the Family, I have just spoken to him he says the road that he lived on was opposite the docks so I presume it is Beaufort Rd number 155,i am hoping to get my dad pictures and some History for him, once again Thank you

I can't find anything on 155 Beaufort Rd, directories up to 1938, not suggesting it didn't exist, may have been built after the 1938, which would have been compiled in 1937.

Beaufort Square doesn't show in the 1938 directory, however,
Leslie Jones, son of Mr&Mrs Henry F Jones was killed at 32 Beaufort Sq, 21 December, 1940 in the bombing raids. Not suggesting he was related.

Perhaps 155 Beaufort Rd was built about the same time as Beaufort Square, between 1938 and 1940.

Was 155 the house your father was pulled out of the rubble?

Hi Cliff,
just noticed your post. The "Britain from Above" website shows a good view of the entire length of Beaufort Road in 1946.(You need to register free to use the enlarge tools).
If you type Gilbrook basin into the search area a couple of photo's will come up.
Both also show Beaufort Square, as mentioned by Bert. One of the photo's shows clearly an end flat which appears to have been renovated with different roofing and brickwork. Possibly this was damaged in the war, as Laird Street Bus Depot, immediately behind Beaufort Square was hit and could be, again, the incident Bert refers to where there were fatalities.
Hope you have success in your search for family History.

Hi Cliff,
looking a little closer on the Britain from Above photo of Beaufort Road, there appears to be re-built houses amongst the terraces, perhaps 155 was among these?

Not a lot to see, Cliff - confirmation that the family lived at 155 Beaufort Road. Shows details for Peter and Dorothy but the children's records are not available under the 100 year rule.

In the second line down on this page, go to "my stuff" then "edit profile" in the left column, then tick "user plus". That should give you access.
