Her details are: Birthdate: 15th April 1903 (Maiden name: Pritchard) Parents: Achason and Laura Pritchard Siblings: Clifford (b1905) and Harold (b1907) - the latter various branches of the family did not realise he existed until the 1911 Census appeared!!

I would like to obtain a photograph of a headstone in the Kirkmichael Cemetery for a Geoff Meredith, died age 27 during TT week 1928. His headstone is a marble checkered flag and was an exact copy of the flag used to finish the I.O.M. races. He was part of a team of visiting speedway riders from Australia with a promising future. Had always dreamed of going to the TT races so left the team in London to go to the I.O.M. He fell ill with pneumonia on arrival but was expected to recover. My Grandfather was wired. Tragically, he died in our Grandfathers arms, during TT week. My Grandfather gave up racing after that. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Can any one help me to find who my grandfathers parents were. He was born on the Isle of Man in 1871. He doesn't appear in the 1871 census but he is listed in the 1881 census as Louis henry Jones, a boarder living with William and Elizabeth Cowell (nee Place)who brought him up. He is not in the 1891 IoM census. I know that he took the surname of Cowell, but no official adoption records were kept then. He is recorded in the 1901 census at Bolton Lancashire with the surname Cowell. I do know thathe was brought up by Wm and Elizabeth, however I would like to find who his real parents are. Can anyone help?
