    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.

    Default Family History

    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.

    Thanks
    Wendy

    Hiya Wendy
    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

    Default Just an update

    Hi everyone

    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.
