Hi there

After two successful first posts on here I'm now after some further help.

I am trying to trace some background on a Mr G. Warbrick who appears to have built the house my family lived in in Devonshire park Tranmere. From the deeds it would appear that he built the property in the late 1940s, its a semi detached but he lived in one of the semis.
Would suspect he was a significant person to have been able to build his own large house particularly that it had servants bells and a flag pole on the side (either that or he had ideas above his station :-))

I've done some googly searches but not come up with anything that points to him (there are loads of Warbricks)

thats all I know of him at the moment that he built the house.

Anything that you guys may have or places I should search would be good.

thanks again

Hi,
A possible,

Guy Warbrick born Birkenhead 1901, Guy married Nora Langley, Birkenhead 1927. His father was Thomas William Warbrick who was a Cigar and Tobacco importer, so maybe that's where the wealth came from for financing house building.

Homer,
If you want to put up the address of the property, I might be able to trace him through the telephone books, he's in them around that time period.
