Lookup needed - Manchester absent voters

Recommended Posts

Chris_Baker

Does any forum user visit the Manchester Archives to examine the absent voters lists?
 

I would be very grateful for a look-up if possible.

 

Arthur Pownall, motor driver and mechanic, known to have served in the Army Service Corps. Absolutely no documentation (medals, service record, pension etc) to be found except for an appearance in the Mather & Platt employer's roll of honour. Understood to have lived at 153 Lodge Street in Miles Platting during the war, although in April 1914 was at 31 Lancashire Street and in 1924 was at 2 Granville Street.

 

Most interested to confirm whether he was still at Lodge Street and any of his ASC details.

Just one bump before I give up and have to jump on a train.

Hi Chris,

Would the Manchester AVL be in the central library?

There seem to be 13 Arthur Pownalls on the electoral register for 1918- on FMP- several in the Manchester area

Hi Chris,

Spent an hour this lunch time looking at the AVL in Manchester Central Library, no luck on Lodge Street I'm afraid. I will PM the results to you later this evening.
