Thank you.
When i read it Jax i thought it said Labourer engineering firm.. this is why i thought i would ask a second opinion.

I think that N has finally seen what he/she missed......hence the failure to return to acknowledge the help we have given

If you had looked at the image...didn't you think the husbands occupation was odd by just saying Labourer to..... ?


Reggie Report 6 Nov 2013 22:39

Didn't hang around long.............

I agree with Reggie - it is part of the husband's occupation; Engineering Firm in his occupation is under Employer, etc column and Employer has been crossed out next to his name and worker written underneath next to Amy.

I agree with Reggie, it's part of Daniel's job description "labourer to lifts".


Reggie Report 6 Nov 2013 15:53

I've just looked at the image and the it's actually part of the man's job description.

Labourer to Lifts.............

The GR link is of no use to me.............I never use the site for research

Not without looking at the the record ...........PLEASE!!

I presume you've looked at the image to ensure that it isn't a mistranscription..................


M Report 6 Nov 2013 15:30

Looking at a census and under the mother's job description it says Lifts?

Could anyone tell me what this is?
