I had great fun looking for my father's father! I knew he was in
but no Critchlow families came up. Eventually I went to the films and
looked around the 1891 address, found them in 1901, put in as much info from
as I could and they came up as LITCHLOW! I know it's a curly C, which could
be a G or an S, but an L??!!
I e-mailed, but I don't know if they will change it.
