Please could anybody find a John Marsh on 1891 census maybe at the Ardwick Green Industrial School Manchester age about 14 on the findmypast census.

A friend found an entry on the findmypast school registers for him but she no longer as access, I have Ancestry but cannot search for school name, he isn't shown at home with rest of family and I wanted to confirm if he was still at the school.

I have later census details.

Thank you
Frances

Thank you brummiejan yes he was born Manchester although always been a query on his father, christening info for Christ church Bradford Lancs shows a John Smyth with parents Thomas Henry and Ernestine, now Ernestine is shown has Thomas Henrys daughter on 1881 census she marries William Marsh 1877 but on school record William is shown step father.

Was an error made on christening record I wonder or was it a case of jiggerry pokerry. :-0 :-0 :-0

Wouldn't be the first in this family.
