I've followed some of the names through, and it's clearly Cash's Lane. For example, Clara Clewlow lived at no.10 in 1927. Confirmed now on viewing register on Ancestry. Hope this helps with your research Thumbs up

Thank you for that, so Ancestry didn't trust findmypast and indexed the register again?

Don't know, John, don't use FMP. Ancestry show images of the Register. The transcriptions of the Register are poor quality - weren't they using prisoners to do some of the transcribing. Whatever, not done particularly professionally.

Anyone who's used Pickard's Pink Pages for Warwickshire during their research will be saddened to know that Pickard Trepess has succumbed to Covid-19 Sad

Oh dear, that is bad news. I've used the Parish Register entries for all the Coventry Anglican parishes where I found my paternal grandmother baptised in St Michael's. Only sorry the All Saints baptisms stopped where they did as I would like to have found my dad and twin sister baptised there (I suppose) in 1907.

There's probably not a need to devote a whole topic purely to "regrets", but there's no reason why things like that shouldn't be discussed in more general "non-Cov" topics such as this one. Personally, I have very few regrets in life - certainly nothing serious. But one that always comes to mind when thinking on this subject, is that I didn't begin researching our family tree until a few years after my "Granddad Orland" died, in 1988. There are a few details that I'll never be able to ask now, and which would've helped us to understand the period around the time he was born and the family moved from Rugby to Coventry (1911). Records can give us some of the dates and cold facts, but you can't beat having proper family stories to share. My dad knew nothing about it, mainly because he was brought up in a very old-fashioned way, where children were seen and not heard, and he didn't have the open conversations about life that we now take for granted with our children. That in itself is material for yet another topic of conversation!

I agree entirely, Rob, and always encourage anyone who might be interested in their family history to “interrogate” older family members whilst they can. And there’s a reverse angle to this, too. Researching my paternal line, I enquired of the Cemetery manager in Crewe about my great grandmother’s burial. The reply told me she had been buried in a common grave, and there were a number of others therein. It transpired that there were three infant siblings of my grandfather, and although I had chatted with my father while he was alive but before I got into serious research, I’m firmly of the opinion that he didn’t know of those infant burials.

For anyone interested in their Scottish ancestry, the 1921 census has been quietly launched online at the usual scotlandspeople.gov.uk.
