I am trying to research my maternal great great grandmother, Catherine McCann, nee Hair. Her husband Michael seems to have abandoned her between 1891 and 1901 (as he was there in one census but not the other and that was what the family were told). Catherine lived in Birkenhead and moved from Frederick St where he son James was born to Flamank St. Then in 1902, she was at 379 Brook St where there was a fire and as a result of her burns, she died. We don't know why she was at that address, or what exactly happened.
As a result of this, her children were put in a care home and her youngest was shipped off to Canada. Her daughter (my great gran) stayed somewhere in Birkenhead and married Richard Sailsbury Dennett and they lived in Wirral all their lives.
If anyone has any information, that would be amazing, even if it is photos of Brook St, Flamank St, Frederick St in Birkenhead.
Thank you!

Catherine McCann was buried at Flaybrick cemetery on the 14 March 1902, described as, Wife of Michael, 379 Brook St, Public Grave.

Having died in a fire or related to, an inquest would have likely been held, records might be held at Wirral Archives and possibly a report in the Birkenhead News, also available at the Archives.

The 1901 census for 379 Brook St, the occupants were Thomas Williams, wife, Margaret, son, Thomas and a lodger, William Jewel.

I've got these filed as Brook St - no idea of their source though, so can't vouch for the accuracy - sorry.

Billy could that be Oak Gardens at the end of one photograph showing a bit of the Pub that was left standing.If it is i don t think it would be Brook Street from that aspect perhaps Park Street..

For the record all of the photos above are of Brook Street. The first, taken from Chapel Street looking west, shows nos. 6-42, the second shows nos. 1-23 together with 57 Lord Street, the third is of nos. 22-30 with 52 Lord Street, and the fourth is part of the block numbered 155-173. The photos were all taken in 1963 by Edward Hubbard who collaborated with Nikolaus Pevsner on the Cheshire volume of The Buildings of England series. Hubbard's surviving negatives are now held at Wirral Archives.

Dusty,
probably should have said " Looking from Hamilton Sq" low even numbers from the town hall on the right of the road.

@bert1

Thank you so much for posting this map. I've been searching for the location of Arrow Place for some time and there it is, as plain as day right off Brook Street. Would anyone be able to share the name of that map collection? Thank you again as It means a great deal to me. I cannot wait to show my Grandfather.
