Hi,
My recent research has given me the address of 91 Wilkinson Street Birkenhead for an ancestors address in 1918. Google maps indicates to Oxton Road when I search for Wilkinson, but is doesn't actually show it on the map. Does anyone know if it still exists today , or has it been renamed? I did an address search on Find my past for the 1911 census but it only went up to the 30's so guess it was extended later on. Thanks in advance.

Emma

About 1970 street map, I think its possibly a part of industrial units. You can google now and get your area.

Funnily enough, part of it does sort of exist ...

(But 91 never existed, perhaps another Wilkinson St?)

Thank you everyone. Having looked again the Marriage certificate it seems I confused a 9 for a 2 , the address was in fact 21 Wilkinson Street. It was your street directory , Derek that made me realise, Mary Ellen Dodd is listed at 21 , and it was a William Dodd that married in 1918, so thank you , you may have also given me the name of William's first wife , which I had been unsucessful in finding thus far!!Thanks again
