That's very kind of you Ian to offer help in my search. I agree that Alan and Robert have pretty much given me all I am likely to get from the IOM. They have both been extrememly helpful.
I may even get to Liverpool myself this year, even if I do I won't have much time up my sleeve. Essentially I would like to find my GGGG grandfather Thomas' grave in Liverpool. Maybe the parish there would have further info. It would be nice to know exactly where in Onchan he lived so when I visit I could stand on the spot! A tall order no doubt.
I also have a niece in UK at present hunting his death cert. No room here to get into detail, will email you direct with the family history as known.Larry Killip
