I have two families to check out that I know lived in Lancashire in 1851, one in Preston/Leyland/Chorley and other in Manchester. I don't want to make an unnecessary journey to the FRC tomorrow. I only have some possible addresses for the Manchester one. For the other family, birth and marriage certicates only give the village or town. Can anyone advise please?
