  1. Here are two more Sheffield men who died in WW1. PrivateWilliam Cahill 3/3668 14th Bn., York & Lancaster Regiment who died aged 29 on 9th March 1917 Missing - remembered on Thiepval Memorial, Somme. He married his sweetheart Kitty Hempstock shortly before he died, she lived Pond Street area of Sheffield. I have not found his name mentioned on a Sheffield memorial as yet but I would be grateful to know if anyone has come across his name. Private James Cahill 2608 1st/5th Bn., West Yorkshire Regiment (Prince of Wales's Own) died aged 32 19th December 1915. Buried Essex Farm, Belgium Remembered on town memorial Harrogate. They were my Gt. Uncles and both born in Carlistle Street area of Sheffield but worked in hotels in Harrogate prior to enlisting. I have photographs but don't know how to attach to this thread.
  2. does anyone recall a family called McCarthy (poss Irish) 1920's - 1940's. Kids were Jimmy, Bernard and Frankie. Went to St. Catherines RC church and boys were altar servers. Father was possibly a school teacher. I have photo's of the family.

  5. My mother worked in the cafeteria in the 1930's, washing up and scrubbing floors - very hard work especially on footy days - all fans clamoured for a meal before the match. Anyone else got ancestors who worked there? names that come to mind - Dolly, Mary Beaumont who maybe went to live in Ireland? Any one got any more pictures of the 'old woolies' ? My mothers name was Cecilia Franchetti - also known as Betty
  6. Hi Maryjane, I am quite interested in what you are saying about the Cahill family, would it be alright to pm you as I don't want to spoil someone else's thread?
