We have had an email come in from Patrick Alford, which I think warrants adding to this post.. hopefully it will tie a few members of the same family together in search of their ancestry.
Over To Patrick:
"I' have been researching my Great Grandfather William Alford for many years now with little success. Last known official mention is in 1901 Census where he is listed at Pat Collins Winter quarters at Queens Road Harpurhey Manchester. My Great Grandmother and Grandmother are also listed.
If an of your readers know about anything concerning William Alford and his family I would appreciate it".
