    Default York Street/Window Lane, Garston L19

    I am a long way from York Street now. I live in Canada. But I used to kick my first football against the wall of the Woodcutters when I was a kid living at No. 8 York Street. It was my Nana & Grandad Martin's house. My Uncle Eric & Aunty Freda George lived at No. 20 York Street. We thought they were rich 'cause they had a telly!!

    Does any one on this forum come from this neck of the woods? I would love to hear your memories. It seems funny now; but when you're a long way from 'home' it's always nice to hear voices from the distant past. I lived on York Street in the 60's as a little lad. But my dad joined the RAF and we moved away. I only get back to Liverpool for short visits now, sadly.

    I might have a photo of my Nana & Granda Martin standing outside their house at No. 8. If I can find it I'll put it up on this thread.

    The new Amsterdam at Liverpool?

    Deprived of its unique dockland waters Liverpool
    becomes a Venice without canals, just another city, no
    longer of special interest to anyone, least of all the
    tourist. Would we visit a modernised Venice of filled in
    canals to view its modern museum describing
    how it once was?

    My nan and her brothers were born and lived at 42 York Street in the 1920's. We drove over a few weeks ago but that end of the street is no more.

    My ggrandad was shown as a Bobbin Mill labourer on his wedding cert does anyone know where the Mill was?

    We also tried to find their graves in Allerton Cemetery but had no luck.

    You can send in a request to Allerton cemetery, to find a grave, but there is a charge for this, I think! But do you already have a grave number? if so, it's just a matter of asking at the offices there, or consulting the cemetery plan.

    Hi, we have part of the document the family were given and it quotes section 16 plot 47. We searched for ages in the rain but couldn't find it. The office at Allerton is now closed and you have to write for information (which I have doen still awaiting a reply), my mum is concerned that the people may have been moved and the ground reused but I'm sure they don't do that or do they?

    Thanks for your reply.
