    On and off I’ve been trying to put together all I can about my birth area ….. Brunswick Road in Liverpool 6 . Only recently have I come across an Ordnance Survey Map of 1848 showing huge , high-class dwellings on Brunswick Road and on Erskine Street . This isn’t the way I experienced my young life there . Would there be any images of that time … and any 1950s 1960s photos of Brunswick Road and most especially Kinder Street ?

    I enjoy these maps !

    I’m tracing my family history and my father comes from Liverpool. My dad lived & grew up in Liverpool from 1931 to about 1948. Addresses I have for family there are Carnarvon street (kirkdale), Cockesill Street (off Walton Rd)…not sure if that is spelt correct…..and Carmel Street (Everton).
    I believe a couple, if not all, of these roads were either destroyed in WW2 or have since been demolished.
    Can anyone help? I believe I still have family living in Liverpool in the name of Richardson & Robinson & possibly Curran.
    Any help is much appreciatted.

    • Hi Paul,

      I’ve not been able to find the streets you mention, and you’re right, the areas they were in were heavily bombed in WWII or cleared by the wrecking ball in the decades following. Good luck with your family history.

      The streets you are looking for can be viewed on
      I was born near Carnarvon st, I am fairly certain these streets were demolished in the 1970’s.
      I believe the other street to be Cockerall which when viewd on the plan is off Walton Rd.

      Regards Jim

      just saw your comment on leslie street,my dad lived there as a young boy,it was on the site of king gardens just off hyslop street.

  8. Hi Peter,

    I’ve not been able to find a great deal of information, except to say that Leslie Street was in Toxteth. It’s not listed on my 1890 map of Liverpool, so it might be south of Princes Park, which is off the bottom of the map.

    I was wondering if anyone knows where the Royal Ordnance Factory was/is located. I understand it was in Fazakerley. Also, I was curious to know if any of the original buildings are still there. I was interested in visiting the site when in Liverpool again. I am in Canada. Thank you in advance.

    January 30, 2013
    • Hi Barrington,

      The ROF was one of the first industries to locate on the outskirts of Liverpool in what are now our industrial and commercial estates. The one at Fazakerley was located where Long Lane industrial estate is. On the map in the Fazakerley page on this site the ROF was around where the ‘F’ in Fazakerley is.

        Thank you very much for the information, Martin. I was hoping some of the original structure might still be there. Any idea where one might be able to see photographs of the original buildings? Is there an archive online perhaps?

        February 12, 2013
        • You could try the English Heritage Archive (formerly the National Monuments Record). They’ve a few websites with records on, or you can email them to ask them to search. Having used (and been involved in the creation of) the websites, I’d suggest using the enquiries form on the main English Heritage website – it’s free to enquire!

  12. Hi Martin
    My name is Andrea. I work in a ex-1960s school in Bootle where we have unearthed the original school stone from 1835. It reads, ‘Bootle National School Erected by voluntary contributions on land presente by the Earl of Derby AD 1835.’

    Aside from us who work here, a lot of the local community are interested in learning more about the stone, the site and surrounding area.

    We are planing a local community historic even concentrating on the L20 area of Bootle (we are off Strand Road). We would like as many old maps, photos and memories of this area/Bootle in general so we can create a whole collection of historic data to celebrate the stone we have found and the land we share today.

    Just to give us a head start with the preceedings, can you suggest where is best for us to look, where to go etc? I have contacted Sefton Council, Bootle History and hope the local library service will get back to us with some treasures!

    I look forward to hearing from you. If you need any more info, how we are doing or image of the stone then please let me know.

    Does anyone know where i can get hold of map of liverpool around the time when the Town Hall was built

    January 4, 2014
    • Hi Nav,

      The town hall was built in 1754, so the two best maps are probably the 1725 Chadwick map or the 1785 Eyes map, depending on a before or after view. Both maps have street names, so are fairly detailed. You can Google them easily enough, although you’ll have to hunt for good quality scans. Otherwise take a trip to the Liverpool Record Office, or pick up the Scouse Press Packet No.2+2, which has tonnes of maps in.

      My father is James Curran and lived in Carnarvon Street. He was born in 1931 and moved from Liverpool in 1948 when he joined the Army. He lived there with his mum & dad.
      Would this be the one?
      I am tracing family history, so any information is welcomed.

    I’m looking for Blodwen St, where my Grandad lived in 1911, which seems not to exist anymore, but may have been near Grovenor St

    January 23, 2014
    • Brian #

      Blodwin Street was, according to the 1901 census, between Meadow Street and Juvenal Street in the Scotland Road area. There are a couple of un-named streets in the ‘square’ contained by Juvenal Street, Grosvenor Street, Chaucer Street and Scotland Road in the maps here

      Look for Chaucer Street, which runs from Grosvenor Street to Scotland Road. The census ‘walk’ puts Blodwin Street after Meadow Street and before Juvenal Street.

      • Hi Brian,

        Thanks for helping with this issue – great research!

    I am looking for Cecil Street, it used to be where the Royal Hospital now is. My mother was born there in 1953 and would love to see a picture of it but I am struggling to locate it.

    Do you know where I can find any info? thanks

    Hi about Penuel Road Walton on the hill & why
    It was named so?
    Any help appreciated,
    Regards, Su :)

    April 24, 2014
    • Hi Su,

      The only clue I can find is that Penuel is a place named in the Bible, associated with Jacob’s (later, “Israel”) struggle with an angel, and so there are religious connotations, and Walton Church is close by. I’m not sure if there are more specific reasons. The road was built at the same time as the ones around it, on what looks on old maps like a formal garden next to the vicarage in the east. Perhaps the word held a special meaning to someone involved in the building of the houses.

  19. Question:

    Is there (or was there) a Flexler Square within Liverpool (circa 1870-1880) ?
    My great grandfather & his dad sailed on Cunard Line from America to Britain.
    with their final destination being Birmingham England.

    Also, would Liverpool have been the initial port to go to on way to Birmngham ?
    Thanks so much.

    June 7, 2014
    • Hi John,

      Could it have been Faulkner Square? That’s the nearest name I can find / think of, and it was residential at that time, I should think. So they may have stayed with family, friends or in a guesthouse on their journey. Do you think they would have had the means to do this? If they’re travelling *too* Liverpool then they were probably a little well off financially.

      Liverpool could certainly have been a stopping-off place on the way to Birmingham, as it’s got better connections with the midlands than Bristol, which would have been the other major port for people arriving in England.

      Hope this helps,
