The Liverpool Records Office is featured in this week's 'Who Do You Think You Are' with Griff Rhys Jones. I noticed David Stoker, who runs the LRO in the trailer last night.
Hi, I don't know if anyone can help. My grandfather Dudley Delamere Wright always said he was born in a pub, so I ordered his birth certificate which does state that his father George Wright was a public house manager.
My grandfather was born in 1 Brunel Street South Everton in 1913, I can't find any info about the street and it doesn't help that I don't know the name of the pub, my grandfather did say it had been demolished.
If anyone can help you will make me very happy because I have been trying for ages.

Brunel Street was off Whitefield Rd & in 1911 the occupier of no.1 Brunel St was Miss Claudina King -Victualler but it doesn't mention what the pubs name was
There is a Brunel pub there today but that is a modern building
If you can't dazzle them with brilliance,baffle them with bull

1 Brunel Street (L6):
"Reservoir Hotel", Mrs Susan Alice Kearon.
Thanks very much PhilipG and Robbo176. I have something new to research now, will let you know how I get on.
I went to Liverpool Central Library on Saturday and found a picture of the Reservoir Hotel. I also found my Great Grandfather listed in the Gores Directory from 1915 to 1920 but had to stop there because I run out of time.
But at least I have proof now that my family once had the pub.
Couldn't find a street map with Brunel St listed though, I will have to go back and have another look.
Has anyone heard of the Delamere School of Dancing because my Grandfather's sister had a dance school in the Crane Hall? Hylda D Wright died in 1971 aged 64.
Brunel Street (map centre). Undated map (around 1880)
Crane Hall is the Neptune Theatre.
The map is brilliant I've been looking for one for ages.
I will be in the records office on saturday afternoon should anyone want me to get any photos of any old streets out - should they exist of course.
Ged.a photo of DENMAN st please would be great,if that ok.
If it's there - consider it done. I'll post up any requests on this thread.
Denman Street taken on 8th June 1970 for Edwardo. Pic-LRO
Click on it to make it larger.
And for Mike who pm'd me.
No. 28 Gatclif rd, Larkhill from within the cul de sac, towards the cul de sac and a wider view of the road.
Hey Ged,thanks for taking the time to do that for me
Ged.Thank you Sir for the photo,as you know there is nothing left to see.I owe you one.many thanks.edwardo
many thanks for this offer. I am trying to find out where Wiiliam Japha is buried. He died in 1891 (June I think). I believe he was living in Everton at the time (47 Village street?)
Never been sure how to look up burial places
many thanks for your help
I don't know where he was buried but was wondering if you need his details from 1881,
there is a William John Japha b Germany 1820 & in 1881 he's at 3 Aubrey st Everton ,
give us a shout if you want/need the rest of the details .
Died aged 71 in June 1891 West Derby, 8B 306.
If you phone Liverpool Direct they take calls on behalf of cemertries,
if you give them his Full name & date of death they may be able to locate
where he is , they'll ask what relation if any you are & also require your e mail .

Was wondering what sort of things can you look up and could i also ask for some help

hi, if you still go to the record office could you poss look for a birth for me, i have found a christening for this person, but i need the actual birth, he was christened in st peters april 1819, i should think he was in that parish when born, he is john sephton (sefton) born 1819 liverpool. i only know his father was edward sephton (stonemason) i travelled up to liverpool record office some time ago and just did not have time to look for it with everything else i needed, i would much appreciate it, c sephton.
Hi if anyone is going can you look up a marraige for me ?, not sure where they married but it was possibly St Cleopas in the Dingle !, George Thomas and Margaret Roe, June 1934 and the reference is 8B 134 (if that helps), I really want to know who the two witness are on the certificate.
Thanks in advance !
Don't know where to put this Kev?The Independent news paper has unearthed a load of ww1 photosof british soldiers on glass plates.
they are unable to ID them as there is nothing writen about them so they are to be put on line in the hope that members of the publice
if theyare recognised will give them a name.it is thought that the photos where taken shortly befor the battle of the somme 1916.
Any way look on there online mag.www.independent.co.uk/unknownsoldiers.to offer info there is a blog set up at http://www.lost-photos.livejurnal.com.
have a look folks.edwardo.
