Hi everyone, my interest in the Manchesters isn't family related just a very keen interest in everything Pals, both Manchester and Liverpool, I spend a lot of time researching and helping others with their research, I have access to Ancestry and the Manchester Evening news archives. Always willing to help so drop me an email or pm, cheers Wayne.

Hi Tony, think we have met, I took part in the Liverpool Pals March, seem to remember having a conversation about Rodaways as my wife's family are Rodways.
