Robert Griffiths (c. 1844-?) of Liverpool
I am seeking additional information on Robert Griffiths, born c. 1844 in Liverpool. He was the grandson of Hugh (c. 1791-1835) and Margaret (c. 1797-1872) Griffiths. He was living with his widowed grandmother on the 1851 (erroneously listed as son then) and the 1871 Liverpool censuses. On the 1881 census he is listed with a wife Anne and a two-year-old daughter Margaret A.. His occupation on both the 1871 and 1881 censuses was Porter. I would like to identify his parents.
Adopted sisters
I am looking to trace ancestors of my great aunts Alice Irving born 1909 and Eleanor Irving born 1911 in West Derby. Their father was called William Irving and their mothers maiden name was Healigan. They were separated from their older sister (my grandmother) in 1911 and placed in a Liverpool orphanage. Despite over 100 years passing they are often thought about and were never forgotten. None of my remaining family have any idea what happened to them after 1911. Can anyone help?
Allerton cemetery - Lewis
Is there anyone out there who can go to or goes past Allerton cemetery and could take a photo of a gravestone for me? The burial is of Freddy son of Frederick Charles & Edith Lewis born May 1908 died October 1918 with a later burial of his mother Edith Lewis who died in 1926 age 44. This grave is apparently located in the church of England section 4 no.131 Thanks in advance for your help.

red mail Dynan/Dinan/Dinnin/Dinen etc who were Tailors in Lancashire.
Hi, I'm looking for help with Dynan/Dinan's in Liverpool and possibly Manchester in the early to mid 1800's. The oldest known relation is John Dynan/Dinan born abt 1806-12 in Ireland,possibly Co Cork, he was a Tailor by occupation. He's on the 1841 census with his family but then left his family in Liverpool and emigrated to the US arriving safely in late 1850 in New York, it appears he quickly died there according to his wife's 1851 Liverpool Census where she is listed as 'widow'. We cannot find anything other than his marriage in 1827 at the Cathedral Manchester to Ann Parry ( no parents listed), the 1841 English census and then his arrival in New York, we cannot find his parents or his death registered anywhere and it's very frustrating! He/they had four children that we know of, but maybe even eight or more between 1827-1845, John, Charles, Griffith and Ann. I know the lines down from these children, except for John born abt 1829-31 in Anglesey, Wales who is on the 1851 census living with his maternal Grandparents. (I'm trying not to get side tracked..but John 'junior' may also go to the US later and die in the Battle of Bull Run/Manassas in 1861, or he could be the person in the family tale who 'fell' overboard off a ship and drowned, maybe trying to save a colleagues life...another puzzle.) I'm now pinning my hopes on the fact John 'senior' is listed as a Tailor on any documentation we have seen. Curiously in Lancashire at that time there appears to be a few Dynan/Dinan/Dinnin/Dineen men who were all Tailors, so I'm hoping there is some link, they maybe related ie. if his brothers then trained in the family business in Ireland, if his sons then trained pre 1841 census and out working elsewhere etc! Does anyone know anything about these other men who were tailors: William Dynan who married Mary Dansall in 1835, Edward Dinnin who married Margaret Holburn in Rochdale in 1851 and his father also called Edward was a tailor too, Nicholas Dynan who married Mary Simmons/Sommers in 1851 in Bolton and his father was John Dynan also a tailor and maybe our John or not, and Robert Dinnen who was a tailor and also the father of Robert John Dinnen (a tailor)who married Mary Ann Piper in 1885 in Salford) incase a family link starts to appear? Also in Liverpool about the same time were two sisters, Mary Dynan marrying James Walsh in 1834 and Bridget Dynan marrying John Lyons (a Tailor!) in's possible these two could be relations also. Does anyone know anything at all that could help me break through this wall? My parents tried for years pre the Internet using old records and churchyard visits etc and I've been trying for at least 20 yrs now! Any help or guidance of any sort would be fantastic, Thank you. Lynn
