My name is Helen My great grandfather was William Lomas born Salford 1873, father John b. 1851 Salford, grandfather John. William's mother Mary Ann (nee Dodd) died in childbirth in July 1890 in Salford Infirmary. The children then went into the poorhouse - does anyone know what happened to William's sisters, Elizabeth b. Salford 1875 and baby girl (name unknown) b.1890. I cannot trace them after this date. Thank you.
