FAMILY RESEARCH

Hi,

my great grandfather, EDWIN STEVENSON, lived at Warren House Farm, Lindley Moor, at the birth of my grandfather, GEORGE STEVENSON, in 1918. EDWIN STEVENSON was a DRAPER'S LABOURER and I'm trying to trace his place of occupation during this time. I wondered if you had any records going back as far as this or could point me in the right direction?

We know there is a connection with Elland and, in those days, people thought nothing of cutting across the moors and walking a couple of miles or more to work.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards,

Jules (granddaughter)
