COMMENTS: Returned to All Saints on 19 Nov to celebrate 40th wedding anniversary -sadly without my wife Pat- nee Todd of 33 Damwood Rd - who died in 1980.The church and grounds are so well looked after it is a great credit to the Parish Team. An enjoyable couple of hours amongst some very nice people.

I would like to attend the Sunday Service again and next time I'm up for 'the match' will stay over and chat about old times. Nothing better than a bout of nostalgia.

COMMENTS: Hi Lynne,

What a lovely site - very welcoming and full of info on Speke. I'm researching my family history, and have Liedbetter, Leadbetter,Fogg, Rice and Goodall ancestors who all originated in Speke, with some baptisms recorded at St Mary's RC Church, Woolton. Do you have any pre-1800 BMD records for All Saints Church, and if not, can you point me in the right direction?

I would love to hear from anyone who can help!!

Best wishes,

Anna

COMMENTS: Dear Lynne,


Firstly, your site is superb. An excellent tribute to the legacy and life of All Saints, Speke.


My Grandparents lived in Speke until they both passed away in the early 80s. They belonged to All Saints for a number of years.


While looking through the photographs I spotted my Grandfather, Henry Littler, MBE - what a tremendous surprise. For your web page reference, he appears on the "Photographs 3 - People from All Saints and other community groups" page, Photograph 5, standing behind the Revd Derek Clawson. He has glasses and just appears from behind the Revd Clawson's head (to the left, as you look at the photograph).


My Grandfather also appears on the same page, Photograph 6, right at the front on the left-hand side wearing the light coloured raincoat, shirt and tie, and standing with his hands clasped together.


My Father moved to N. Ireland in the 60s with the BBC and has stayed ever since. We spent many very happy holidays in Speke with our Grandparents.


My Grandfather, Henry Littler, received an MBE in the late 60s.


Thank you and best wishes with your site.


Tim Littler.

EMAIL: auyg71@dsl.pipex.com

REFERRED BY: E-Mail

LOCATION: Daventry, Northants

COMMENTS: Hello to Everyone, especially Lynne, who has done the most amazing job! I am emailing as a last chance lottery scenario, so here goes. If any of this info rings a bell to anyone, please get in touch.


I had an aunt and uncle who lived in School Way, 145, until around 1990. They had lived there throughout the 1970s and 1980s. They were Eileen and Alan Davy. They had a son Lee and a Daughter Eileen. Lee was born in 1968 and would be just 38 now. My aunts maiden name was Roberts and she was formerly from the Dingle area of Liverpool. Her brother Cyril, "Ciggy" Roberts was my dad. Last heard she and her husband moved to Cherry Sutton and Lee moved to Isle of Man.


My grandfather Robert "Bob" Roberts died on Sept 26 1973 and the funeral service was at All Saints Church in Speke. Am trying to locate his burial plot, which is at Allerton. Would the Church have any record of that?


Also trying to locate my grandmother Mary's gravesite in Allerton, but no luck yet either. Dont know where her funeral service was held but she died much earlier than my grandfather. Her maiden name was Thompson. My dads best friend was Bobby Fraser, also from the Dingle area. He is also sadly deceased and has been for many years.


If anyone recognises any names i have mentioned, please get in touch. Also, if anyone can help me locate my grandparents plot numbers, i would be extremely grateful. It has taken me 5 years just to find out about my grandmothers maiden name.

Love and best wishes to Speke website users and all who surf on her. Take care

Jo Billingsley nee Roberts


Lynne: Hi Joanne, I'll be in touch soon with my email address and information on who to contact about the records for Allerton Cemetery.

EMAIL: jaynescoobie123@ntlworld.com

LOCATION: Leeds, West Yorkshire

COMMENTS: Hi

I am searching for information about my ancestors starting mostly from Edward Holme (also documented as Hulme and Holmes) who was a farmer in Speke and lived at Honey Hall (also documented as Honey Hall Farm)and was born in 1814. I think this was near/on Edward's Lane and a place called Holme Hollow. His brother John Holme also owned land in Speke and Edward's son Anthony had White House farm on Garston Old Road.

Edward is one of the locals who presented the book to Miss Watt on her 21st birthday. I was delighted to see his name in it when I visited Speke Hall last year. If anyone knows of anything about my family or the farms please get in touch or if there is any Holme/Holmes/Hulmes still living in the area I would be very pleased to hear from you!

Thanks

Jayne Roberts

Leeds


LYNNE: Hi Jayne, Hulme is definitely a well known old Speke name. Edward Holme is on the 1881 census page at http://spekec.mysite.wanadoo-members.co.uk/1881census.htm He is also on the 1891 at Honey Hall Farm. I'll send you the details with anything else I find!


Lynne: Update - I have managed to locate someone with photos of Honey Hall Farm and he has contacted Jayne with the good news.

COMMENTS: Hi Lynne , It was great to find your new site and to see that someone had remembered me . Im sure I do remember Tony coming in the Co op and had forgotten all about any shopping being called " messages " Ive been away from Liverool too long !

I remember the fields of daffodils along Hale Road , what a sight they were ! There was also a small lane off Hale road which had some small cottages and the most beautiful gardens . A lady who lived in one of them would pick you a lovely bunch for a couple of pennies . The last time I went to Liverpool , I found the lane but alas ! the cottages and gardens had gone without a trace of them ever being there . So sad but thank goodness for memories !

Bye for now , Carol .

Thanks very much
