9 Oak St. and 70 Cedar St. Bootle by Doreen Travis (Member 10011880) on 26-Oct-2003
In 1898 John NEALE was living at 9, Oak Street, Bootle
Sarah Ann BROWN was living at 70, Cedar Street, Bootle. They married in the Baptist Church on Stanley Road. Are any of these buildings still standing, if so is anyone willing to take digital photos of these buildings please. Thanks a lot.

    There was a Baptist Church on Stanley Rd, between Merton Rd and Trinity Rd. It was demolished in the late 60's to make way for office buildings. It was rebuilt in Netherton and is known today as Emmanuel Baptist Church, Fleetwoods Lane Netherton- I think all records from the old church were transferred there.

    A picture of the old church can be found at www.merseyviews.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk , click on Bootle Past on the left hand side and then select the box which says Stanley rd/Merton Rd. Hope this helps

    Yes I did visit there a few times but it was dire. About 12 teens attended at that time and I used the term "dance" very loosely as they put records on a Dansette wind-up record player but that must have been 1952/3 not late 50's like I said.

    Sorry
    not logged in for a while.
    I just spoke to my mate Norman Gwyther who bumps into Donny now and again.
    Donny had lost my e-mail address and he now has it. I will contact Norman to see whether I can find the info you are looking for.

    Cheers

Looking for the Prestons. by Sheila Graham (Member 10000762) on 29-Apr-2003
I saw a message with the name Preston and it reminded me of someone I grew up with. If anyone knows of the Preston girls..Ann (Jones), Joan, Betty, Glynis (unsure of the name, is the 'baby')
There is seven girls and we all lived in Ainsdale Road, off Fernhill Road..Thanks, Sheila Graham
  
  • Re: Looking for the Prestons. by Sheila Graham (Member 10000762) on 6-Aug-2003
    Hi Anne, I had forgotten Margaret and Gwen was the baby of the family, not Glynis as I first posted. I don't recall Murphy living in Ainsdale Road, perhaps they moved in after we left. I went to Roberts School..I left in 1959. Would you happen to know where Margaret lives now? I would love to get in touch with her sister Ann. Thanks for your reply.....sheila.g.

  • Re: Looking for the Prestons. by Sheila Graham (Member 10000762) on 28-Aug-2003
    Hiya Anne, I can't recall Elsie Smith. I am in touch with someone from my class at Roberts I shall her if she remembers her. Sheila.G.

  • Re: Looking for the Prestons. by Sheila Graham (Member 10000762) on 16-Sep-2003
    Anne, was your sister Margaret older than you? Was she interested in art and did she go to Roberts school? sheila.g.

  • Re: Looking for the Prestons. by Sheila Graham (Member 10000762) on 12-Nov-2003
    Did Margaret go to Roberts School in the late 50s...Something else I remember, she had siblings who are twins and she came from a large family...Are you from the same family? sheila.g.
