Ellis On the 1901 there are no Emily HURDMAN entries at all, and no Leicester connections as far as I can see. There are only 118 of that spelling in the country! Any other clues?

Also had a quick look at the Kelly’s TRADE Directory 1909 /10. for the City of Leicester. No number 26 Parry Street listed But. . . next door at No. 24. Sarah A. Nicola. Shopkeeper. Close .. . .sorry. . . I need to look at the Address directory for that year Which is in the Ref. Library in Town. But that will only tell me the Head of The Household at No. 26. So if you’ll bear with me for a few days I’ll see if I can come up with an answer for you. Sorry but most of my Leicestershire disks are for the years 1841. ~ 1891. But I'll help you as far as I can. I think you need to ask on the “ Trying to Find Board “ if anyone has an electoral roll for that year. MIKE.

SAINT MICHAEL......... ****you are an absolute star !!!**** looks like i'm finally getting somewhere with these Simmons now , thank you soooooooooo much. Didn't know of the Nottingham connection, so in the last hour i've gone back 4 more generations, will be double checking my IGI findings though. Hadn't even considered a previous marriage for Frederick, have since found his first wife to be Martha Ashmore from Derby, i'll be checking Loughboro' records in the week now for the second marriage, and also a baptism for young Thomas to find which is his mother ( i'm thinkin it to be Ann.......) Thank you once again......... Jane xxxxxxx

Need help badly as I cannot trace anyone particularly one side of family even on the 1901 survey and have no relatives to ask Wilfred KIrkman Moore born 19th Aug 23 Scott Street Leics Thomas William Moore Annie Elizabeth Moore formerly Hunt also William Warren who married Mary Anne Warren, he was from Northampton and have found them back to 1881 but in 1891 have found them living at what looks like George Street and also another William Warren living with the Noon family at what looks like Colton Street as in 1901 Rose E Noon is living with my great gran Rose Warren. Hope this makes sense to anyone reading because in 1901 I also can't find Albert Victor Ward who was married to Rose Warren Thanks

Mike you are a gem. I have found much the same info about the Warrens and confirmed some bits yesterday after getting on Ancestry.com through the trial. Just learning as I go a long and somewhere , I think on the Leicester site I forund Mary Ann Powell . William Warren is deceased according to the marriage cert of Rose and Albert in 1899 and his occupation was Boatman. Wifred Kirkman Moore was born 19th August 1901 at 23 Scott Street and he later married my nan Hilda Moore nee Ward. Sorry no info on Thomas or Annie Can't thank you enough Elaine
