Hi

I am new to this forum and I have been trawling my family's History. My Grandmother was married from 61 Flamank Street and I have just been reading Damburst and am interested to find that George Crighton who survived was noted as living with my Great-Great Grandparents. Does anyone know anything about what happened to him. Did he marry a Walker or was he just boarding with the family? I will be coming up to Birkenhead at Christmas to trawl through the library record.

Thanks a lot

D

Thanks for the reply, I got the book. My friend's bought me a copy yesterday which I have already read and on page 30 & 31 it lists the dead and injured. George Crighton was the only one at the bottom of the pit to survive and he was staying at 61 Flamank Street which was my Great Great Grandparents house. The book gives information on what happened to the other survivors just not him and he disappears from the radar. I have looked on Ancestry as I would like to know if he married one of my ancestors or if he was just a lodger.

I think you might need to go to Census reports from 1911

http://www.1911census.co.uk/

or check for Marriage certificates.

I have got a George Crighton (platelayer) living at 1 Saxon Street on the 1915-16 Birkenhead Directory. Could this be him?
