Hello Helen,

The Hill family comprising of Thomas William, Clara Jane, Edith Hannah and Thomas were living in Golcar at 92 James Street in 1929. In the 1911 census the family were living in New Mills, near Stockport. Edith's parents; Thomas William and Clara Jane (nee Rae) were born in Birch Vale, Derbyshire and Elland respectively. Edith was born in Brighouse and her sibling Thomas was born in Birch Vale.

The electoral roll shows that after Edith's and Tom's marriage they were living with the Hill family.

The local church hosts a weekly Luncheon Club which is attended by some of the senior residents of the village. It may be worth contacting the vicar, the Rev Simon Cook, to ask if one of the volunteers to make your request for information on your family to the club members. Contact details are on the St John's webpage.

Good luck with your search and enjoy your visit back to Golcar.
