CupCakes Report 3 May 2013 08:37

My grandfather's will has 2 people besides my grandmother named.

Date will filed 30 Jan 1938 - date probate granted 1944.

He was born 1884 - Manchester. My grandmother abt 1883 claimed London

It has named a Amelia Ann Ruscoe living in 1938 at 108 Dudley Street, Hr Broughton, Manchester. Profession Confectioner.

I am particularly interested in finding any info about Amelia because of the Confectioner profession. Grandma had a sweet shop in Middleton in the 50's but none of us can remember the address

The will is typed so the names very clear
Needs fresh eyes on this because I just can't find any BMD for Amelia

:-D :-D :-D

I found a marriage for an Amelia Agnes RUSCOE- Dec 1887 - Mile End, London

The name, place and date is way out so had to discount it.


Pam Report 3 May 2013 09:24

There is a 1911 marriage for Joseph Ruscoe to Amelia A Crossley in Salford which might be the one you are looking for.


CupCakes Report 3 May 2013 09:33

OMG found it - Pam thanks so much - to Joseph H Roscoe Sept 1911 Salford 8d 102
now a likely birth Mar 1887 Salford 8d 154 but death is completely eluding me.

Well done, Choccy, that does looks like the right Amelia :-D

Reggie, do you just make all those rude remarks to boost your "Post numbers" ?

Everyone has to learn --and sometimes records are not where we expect to find them.

I see Reggie has taken the remarks off this thread---


CupCakes Report 3 May 2013 12:48

Thank you so much everybody so appreciated. Never gave a thought that she may have moved down south or travelled abroad.

I was thinking of Manchester addresses only

Supposed to have been able to sort it myself but have been a bit under the weather of late and my brain is a bit fuzzed at the moment.That is why I asked for fresh eyes to have a look at it.

Now we need info on Joseph H Roscoe - if there are some shipping records for him?


SylviaInCanada Report 3 May 2013 17:13

Electoral rolls would help give more information

or the phone books ............. unfortunately not on GR, so far as I know
