    Thanks Keith!
    I am wondering tho is there a way of acquiring Bibby records? Something that would shed light on his employment.
    The last telephone book entry I have for him is that of 1982...as I can’t post a phot, this is how he is listed...
    “Mills Capt M.C.,....3 Kings Walk W. Kirby
    Also, he appears in a newspaper article in 1970.The article was in the Liverpool Echo and it reported the death at sea of Capt. Leslie H Sheldrake who died aboard the Staffordshire. C. M Mills was flown down to take command of the ship. And the address in the article matches the address in the above phone book.

    Hi Michele,

    Initially Doc is our site senior moderator, regarding the uploading of pic's,
    rather than trying to explain he may add his prepared instructions.

    All in the research team have access to and use different resources. Hopefully,
    team work by all that add info, may get the results you seek.

    Doc at the moment is the man for all things re: Archives.

    RE: MY post #10

    Charles Mills 1915 West Derby Birth Registration Apr-May-Jun
    Charles Mills 1915 Burnley Birth Registration Apr-May-Jun
    Charles Mills 1915 Toxteth Park Birth Registration Jul-Aug-Sep
    Charles Mills 1915 Oldham Birth Registration Jul-Aug-Sep

    Charles Mills 1915 Toxteth Park seems to link in best with Doc's - post #6.

    Once we can confirm that we have the correct chap, possibly you will be
    directed towards the records that you need.

    I will keep looking with fingers crossed.

    Regards,

    Keith.
