  1. Yes, Brew, I think most on here are in receipt of pension. There are those of us, though, who are self-employed, like my husband and I, who, whilst in our 60's, are without any pension or income and have to wait until at least June for any Govt support
  2. MD I'm so sorry to hear this and hope you'll soon be together again
  3. What a lovely photo and big congratulations to you both
  4. He was Edward Hurst, always known as Ted. He and his very big and very poor family lived in Elson Terrace, off Elson Street. He had a sister, Margaret, who was a bit closer to your Mum in age (she was born in 1924), but I don't know if she went to Berridge
  5. We're stronger, remember, Jill!
  6. Very interesting, Jill! I assume Berridge Infants was mixed? If so Miss Wheat would have been Headmistress at the time my Dad was at the school (he was born in 1922) Found a death for Elizabeth Maud (sic) Foden with a matching birthdate. She lived in Ulverston and died on 3/2/1991 ( GRO Deaths Index and National Probate Calendar)
  7. A Death notice for someone with the surname Plenderleith in the Nottingham Evening Post for 1931 mentions a Rosa Villa, Station Road, Gedling
  8. There's a marriage for a Johnathan Eyre to Sarah Ann Fish in Nottingham in 1902. Your mothers Birth index entry shows her mothers maiden name to be Fish. In the 1911 census, Sarah Anns birthplace is given as Cromer. In 1911 they are living at 7 Hope Street and Johnathan is a Coal Miner. On the 1891 census, Johnathan is living with his parents (father is Robert) at 2 Hope Street. Robert's occupation is Collier. I'd suggest you take out a free trial with the Ancestry website, to investigate further, or the Ancestry website may be available for free at your local library
  9. Same with my family too, Jill and Lizzie. My Dad wanted to go to Australia, but my Mum didn't want to leave her family
  10. It would save a lot of searching if you know roughly when Jonathan was born and/or died, and also if you can give your Mum's full name at birth, and where she was born
  11. Happy Birthday Jill - sounds as though you're having a lovely day
  12. If you think he might have had a British Army pension, due to illness or injury, then, apart from the WW1 records on Ancestry, there are Pension record cards, also on Ancestry, but held by Fold3, which would be worth a search. Only some are available at the moment, though - think there are lots more to come I'd had a quick look at the Canadian Army records, as I know they are online, but nothing obvious Might be worth tracing descendants of Ethel's and/or William's siblings to see if they know more
  13. He appears on the 1939 Register, with a date of birth of 23 Nov 1887, living at 2 L N E R Cottages, Kimberley. He also transferred from the Royal Navy to the Canadian Navy as per his RN records and there's a record for him here, but it's not online, you have to apply for it You can perhaps get a free trial for the Ancestry website or you may be able to view at your local library, then you'll be able to search surviving British Army service records (other ranks, not Officers) and Railway records. Bear in mind though, that lots of WW1 service records were destroyed in WW2 so they may not have survived and I don't think the Railway records are complete and they give very little information, anyway
  14. Hope everything improves for you Nonna
  15. Can you be more specific on dates, please? When did George Allen marry Mary White and when were both of them born and where and when did they die? Who were the parents of Louisa Allen and where and when was she born? When did she marry? When was Clarice born and where?
