Hello Patrick,
Would you be able to look up burial record for William Roach. Age 48
GRO Record is Sept Q 1903. 8b Page 113.

If it is my William he was living in Everton District ?? Stitt Street.
His wife was Ellen Roach. There is possibility that he may not have been a Catholic, his sons were buried in Ford Cemetery I believe they were brought up Catholics.

Thank you.

Hi there
I'm researching my Irish ancestry and came across the marriage of James Ushar & Rose Ann Callahan at St. Anthony's RC Church in Scotland St.. I'm wondering if this could possibly be James USHER (from Drogheda) born in 1835 and Rose Ann COLLIGAN (from Glasgow) born in 1839. Their first daughter, Margaret Usher was born in 1865. Can you help?

Patrick,

Many Thanks for your information, this is great news! I did contact Yewtree
Cemetery, they did inform me that Mary Sheehan Nee Murray, was buried in a
public grave. They gave also given me the plot for her sons Alfred and Joe
Sheehan
. I went there last Saturday but couldn't find them and as there was
no one there to ask I was stuck!! Thanks for the map of the cemetery, this
will be a great help as I'm going back there this Saturday.

I am now looking for Peter Murray, Mary Sheehan's father. He was born in
1846 in Ireland and is on the 1891 Census, for West Derby, Lancs. I don't
know if he's buried at Yew Tree but I need to find this out.

Would you happen to know how I can find out when they came to Liverpool ? I
am trying to locate the date they came and information as to where in
Ireland they came from.

Dear Patrick,
Can I call on you again for some help about my uncle who died as a child of less than 12 months old? I have scant information but will do the best I can. His name was,
Thomas Joseph Maxwell, aged about 5 months, he died about 20/4/1860, and is said to have been buried in the old burial place at Saint Oswald's. Liverpool, I am led to believe that there might have been two grave yards for Saint Oswald's over those early years.
There is another relative who died approximately six months earlier in October 1859 and is also buried in Saint Oswald's he is
Patrick Maxwell, aged about 40 years old and died of the fever in 1859.
Could you please tell me if they are buried in the same grave or two separate graves? Also could you tell me the names of the other occupants of the grave or graves.
I would be most grateful if you could help me out and as always I will be only to willing to make a good donation to CAFOD to help with there excellent work.

Dear Patrick,

I am very grateful to you for the information sent to me which is totally new and most helpful with the dates etc. I have e-mailed it all to my cousin (who I found on the internet last year) her father is Edward who is in the grave - and she has not been there for 55 years - except for last year when she could not find it, or remember where it was, so like myself she is very pleased, but she says she feels sure her mother told her, before she died that there wasn't a headstone. However, I ask if Jonathan should go the the cemetery at some time for some other purpose (and to save him a wasted journey) could he kindly look to confirm this - but IF there is a headstone which is readable take that photograph for me and I will of course pay him for doing so, if readable I would like the A4 one please.

I wonder if you have other sites that may be helpful to me ? - I am thinking of William T. Walmsley Born 1871 - ( the son of George D. 9/4/37) my gt.gt. Uncle, educated at St Edwards College, Upholland, Liverpool - he became a RC Priest (I have the details of all his Diocese) - and he died at Warrenpoint, Ireland 2nd December 1946 - I am unable to trace why he was there, the Cemetery or his burial details.

I am very happy to forward a donation to CAFOD as directed and thank you for the help already given and I would be happy to contribute again for any further information that you may offer me in the future.

Best wishes,
Pauline,

I'm glad to be of help.

In the Liverpool RC Burial Index there is mention of a Rev. Canon Walmsley, Ford Cemetery, Section: I, Plot: 45, 36 West Derby Road Liverpool L6, Age: 55 years, Interred: 20/11/1868.

And  Rev. F Walmsley, Ford cemetery, Section: I, Plot: 18, - INT 010111903 DAY+MONTH NOT KNOWN

I can't recommend any other sites for you to check.

Have you tried contacting St Edwards College, Upholland or the Archivist at the Liverpool Cathedral? Also the local Newspaper at Warrenpoint may say where he is buried. Have you tried to contact the RC parish church at Warrenpoint?

Thank you for any donation you make to CAFOD.

I will ask Jonathan to check for a headstone on Plot SD 685, the next time he is in Ford Cemetery.

You are an absolute star!!! The address you gave me is the one on the census
for this person.
Would you happen to know how I go on about finding out when he came over to
Liverpool from Ireland and where about in Ireland he came from ? I have the
following members in my tree:

Peter Murray
Joseph Sheehan Born 1876 Ireland
William McLoughlin Born 1840/1842 Ireland ( 2 census record give 2 different dates but same address)

All stated in the census as Ireland as being their birth place. Doesn't state
the location. Is there a record somewhere in Liverpool as having the date
entered into the city and which county in Ireland they came from ? I know
the 19th Century census and records in the GRO in Dublin was destroyed
during the civil war so I'm going to end up a little stuck!

I'm going make another donation as your help has been invaluable!

Many thanks

Phil

Answer sent Sunday 19th November 2006

Phil,

I'm glad to be of help.

Finding an address in Ireland for an Irish ancestor was born can be very difficult. It took me 16 years to locate the birth place of one of my Irish ancestor's (Isaac Neill).

Only some of the records were destroyed in the Four Courts fire in Dublin. The Birth, Marriage and Death records and indexes are still available, but they started in 1845 and 1864. I have checked the IRISH GRO records at the Mormon Library in Chorley Lancashire and at Dublin GRO.

As Ireland was part of Britain before independence, there are no records of people coming into Liverpool from Ireland. It's just a mater of checking all Baptisms, Marriages church records as well as all the Census records for a clue where in Ireland an ancestor came from, see:

Hello again Patrick.
Once again I must call upon your excellent burial look up service.
I'm trying to find my great grandfather's burial place.
His name was Alexander Smith. Born In Ireland in about 1842
He lived most of his married life in the Athol Street area and died in about 1897 aged 54/55 ish?
His wife's name was Frances Smith and she died in 1871. I offer this information as perhaps they are buried together.
Being Catholic I would think he/they are buried in Ford Cemetery.
I will of course make a donation on your behalf to CAFOD at Mass next Sunday whether or not your search is successful.

Hello Pat, hope you can help to unravel this mystery.

Ford, Plot SD 1326. Deed Holder Catherine Dacey 01/01/33 Day and month unknown

Patrick Dacey 32, Goldsmith street L20, age 63 years 19/3/1926

John Lawrence 2, Longfellow Street L20, age 60 years 17/11/1975

Patrick Dacey is my Maternal grandfather, and John Dacey his son, my uncle. But no one knows whom this Catherine Dacey is, her age, where she lived or when she died? I have been told this date,1/1/33 is burial date and, although deed holder, not necessarily buried in this plot

Engraving on tombstone says beloved late wife. Patrick was a single man of 48 when he married and his wife Catherine nee Sinclair died 1971 and buried in Bootle cemetery, and through remarriage 1930, her name was Jackson.

I have been trying for years to sort this out and come up against a brick wall. Hope you can advice me further.

The Liverpool RC Marriage Index covers mostly the RC church in Liverpool that existed pre. 1848 or came into being in the 1840/50/60's, this was done to try and capture most of the Irish that came to Liverpool because of the Potato Famine. A list of the churches covered can be seen at the bottom of the page of:

If you can't get to the grave, I could ask my son (Jonathan)  if he could check for a headstone for you. He charges £2.50 to email pictures of any headstone found.
Or £4.00 to post an A4 picture of a headstone.
No charge if no headstone found.For information about RC/Irish research in Liverpool see:

Subject: Marriages in St Peters Seel street

Dear Patrick
I have not contacted you before and wondered if you could help me.
My great Grandparents Angelique Judith Dugas and Louise Bryant were married in St Peters Seel Street. They are listed as being French subjects in the 1881 census. Angelique had a son Ernest Dugas who was an "Inmate" in The Holy trinity Industrial school Grafton Street
Toxteth in 1881.
My other great grandparents married in St Peters in 1868 they were Fernando Sido and Bridget Henley. All these people are listed in your excellent R.C. marriage Records.
They had three children Sarah Teresa and Frerederick and they all lived in Toxteth around Lydia Anne Street.
I am not a member of your group but have always been attracted to Liverpool although I speak with a Glasgow accent. I am more than happy to donate to C.A.FO.D
I really wanted to know if there was a French or Italian Community in Seel Street and connected with St Peters an if the names Henley{irish} Sido{italian) Dugas{French} Bryant{French} have any connections past or present with Seel Street St Peters or Toxteth. Perhaps you could tell me where the parish records are kept.
I am getting on in years and have been wondering what sort of life people had in Liverpool in the late 19th century it has occupied my mind during my retirement

Some of Liverpool RC churches were very good at giving the birth place of people (St Patrick's church was one of the best at doing this, St Peter's Seel Street was one of the worst). There were French and Italian communities in several locations in Liverpool, see Cultural Roots of the Liverpool People:
