Hello all, Orrell Family. Known:- Thomas Edward Orrell, born 1885, died 18.11.26 in Bolton. Married Florence Haslem(Haslam) 10.6.1914. Three daughters, Marjorie(My mother)_born 1917,Florence(Born 1916) & Ethel Mary(born 1920). Thomas Edward Orrell's parents were Thomas Orrell & Cartherine. They lived in Bolton @ 211 Derby Street. Thomas was born in West Leigh in 1861. I think Catherine was born in Liverpool in 1865. Any help tracking these last two back would be appreciated. Miles Snow.
