    I hope I am not hijacking someone else’s post but was interested in what Angela said about indexing workhouse admissions. Could I be cheeking and ask Angela if there is anything for a Henry Mitchell, born 1805 who was in a workhouse in 1901? Thanks.

    Military service records are not subject to any ‘100 year’ rule, WW1 records, such as have survived, have been available on Ancestry for several years.

    WW2 service records can be purchased from the MOD, here is their web site

    https://www.gov.uk/get-copy-military-service-records

    Note the 3rd bullet point below!!! The cost is £30 none refundable, even if they do not find anything. Good hunting.

    Do you use Facebook? If so there is a good military group who are very helpful.

    DoBs on the 1939 register are notoriously wrong. I don’t think they took too much trouble over them.

    Sorry, I was being clever but you wouldn’t know our school age ranges. I was born in 1949 so David would be similar. We went to senior school at age 11 in 1960.

    The school was St John’s, School Street infant and junior school (there were 2 St John’s schools at the time). No, it isn’t still there, pulled down many years ago and now a day centre for the elderly sits on the site. Even the street has been renamed.

    Hi,

    I don’t know if this is any help at all but I was at infant/junior school with a David Peacock but we lost contact when we went to senior school in 1960.
