    Default caretaker / preacher of Liverpool / Toxteth / Dingle

    looking for knowledge of my uncle Robert Harold PLIMMER 1922 - 1989

    he was listed as a retired caretaker on his death certificate and was living in 116B Wellington Road, L8

    I believe he would "preach" at the Pier Head, as he was a deeply religious man

    Anyone with any knowledge of where he was a caretaker (perhaps Florence (The Florrie) Institute, The Domestic Mission has been suggested also) in a school or church nearby perhaps?

    Or knowledge of his burial / cremation service etc most welcome

    thank you

    I found the following entry on 192.com by googling your uncle's name
    10 Electoral Roll 2009, Terence Bennett Age guide: 55-59, Liverpool, Merseyside, L8 View Address
    Other occupants: Robert H Plimmer

    I know your uncle died in 1989 but it's quite an unusual name and is also in L8 so I wondered if there may be a connection. Could be worth registering and viewing the actual address.

    Hi "Plimmerian" welcome. I remember Bob Plimmer. He was caretaker at Toxteth Tabernacle, Baptist Church, Park Road, Liverpool 8. sometime during the 1950's and 1960's. At one time he resided at my Grandmothers house in Dombey Street, which is at the side of the church. My father had a lot to do with the church, and new Bob was looking for accomodation.

    wow - thanks for that - brilliant to know someone who knew him - I found his address the year after he died, a neighbour wrote back and told me he had passed away - so sadly I missed out on the chance to meet him! This bit of history you gave is like gold dust to me - thank you again!

    hi - I wrote to the Liverpool electoral people about this and they said that no one of that name (Plimmer) listed at that address then - very odd!!
