If any body is interested this site(which is the site for the Sutton Family Genealogy) has aswell as great photos some fantastic information on census info, who lived where etc. http://www.andysutton.co.uk/sitemap.html (you will need to expand all on the Site Map page)
The photos of Birkenhead are excellent. Hope this is the right place?
