I am trying to find Henry born about 1818, father Luke, who as a widower, married an Eliza Griffiths on 30 August 1880 at St Anne's, Birkenhead, and who died on 28 Jan 1881. Does this link with anyone you know of please?

Hi Cassie and welcome to the boards.

I realise you have been a member since 2009 and so have most probably already search all the trees and made contact with others.

If you would like some help please tell us what information you are hoping to find and we will see what we can find.

What an amazing response! Although I joined in 2009, I've only recently renewed my efforts in seeking info.

I'd picked up the possible baptism via the Lancashire OnLine Parish Clerks website.
The other suggestions look like real possibilities and I'll follow them up.

Thank you all!
