I am starting to think Frank may have played in goal for Workington. Joseph Doggart thinks he did

But Norman Doggart (Dr Rock) said his grandfather played in goal for Workington. So that wouldn't be him.

2018: Changed mind again. It was Arthur Doggart, Dr Rocks grandad who played in goal

It is described as permanent way because in the earlier days of railway construction, contractors often laid a temporary track to transport spoil and materials about the site; when this work was substantially completed, the temporary track was taken up and the permanent way installed. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Permanent_way_%28history%29

I haven't put this in as a proper Sourced date because I am unsure about it. Other people do have this as a fact so it probably is. I know Thomas served in the Border reg and left before the war started. Presumably he joined again? Another fact in favour of this being hin is that I can't find him in the UK, Scottish or Irish death indexes. Which is what you would expect if he died in France.

Note

My Grandad

He was born 24th April 1888 in Workington

There was a Census in the UK in 1891. It shows that he was part of a big family of 11 living at 84 Bolton Street, Workington.

He was 3 years old at that time and lived in the house with the following

His Mum and Dad (Mum was from Airdrie and Dad from Glasgow) His big sister Selina who was 17 and worked as a Domestic Servant. Selina was born in Belfast which is where the mum and dad got married. His 5 brothers His baby sister (just 9 months old) His dads brother, a Plumber and Gas fitter, also lived with them. He was also from Glasgow.

The next census was 10 years later in 1901. My granddad was now 13 and the family had moved to Derwent Street

His mum and dad were there, in their early 50s His big sister Selina had moved out and married and was living just a few doors down. She had 2 children of her own a girl aged 3 and a baby boy. His 3 eldest brothers had moved out. 2 of them were in the army. Another of the 3 was just married, also living in the same street with his new wife and her Dad. His 2 other brothers were still there aged 19 and 17 His dads brother had moved out and married Since the last census there was 1 new son added to the family. So in total there were 6 of them living there

Moving on another 10 years to the next Census in 1911 My grandad was now 23 I found him living on his own in rented accomadation in Dewsbury in Yorkshire. He was working as a labourer laying railyway tracks.

4 years later in 1915 he got married to my Grandma in Workington Parish church. His father had died 2 years previously.

My dad was born later that year

A son (my dads brother) was born a year later but only lived 2 months

A daughter (my dads sister) was born a year after that. She died a year later

Another daughter (another sister to my dad) was born a year later again but died ages 5 days. My grandad died the same day. He was only married to my Grandma for 3 years before he died.
