Beech Mount Harpurhey
« on: 11:16:20, 30/04/18 »
While researching my Family Tree I have recently come across a relative who in 1901 was working as a servant for George Haworth a cotton manufacturer and his daughter Ellen a sick nurse.  Not sure of the wording whether it meant the daughter was a nurse or that she was sick!! at Beech Mount Harpurhey.  I know that Beech Mount was a maternity home but the extract reads like she was a private servant, not in a home.


I believe my relative Gertrude Scholes never married and I'd like to track down exactly where she worked or any information about her.


Any help appreciated. :)

Hi Daisynook.


Beech Mount was off Rochdale Road and as well as the maternity home, there were large houses
which would have servants.


Can you give more details on Gertrude here age and where born.

Thanks for you reply Marj.  Gertrude's name was Scholes born in Crumpsall in 1881 died June 1937, she would have been 20 in 1901 when she was working in Beech Mount.


Thanks for your help.

Hi Daisynook,


I have been looking for your Gertrude, I couldn't find her on 1911 census, that's assuming that the Gertrude's death you found in 1937 age 55 (b.1882),however  there is a married Gertrude Scholes on the 1911 census with her husband Luke she was b. 1882 Bolton living in Manchester.


Sept qtr 1903  is a marriage for Gertrude Scholes in Ashton-u-Lyne  Reg Office to Frank Russell.


1911 Census Ashton-U-Lyne


Frank Russell 28 Lab  b Stalybridge
Gertrude Russell wife 29, b. Manchester
Ellen dtr 7
Stanley Russell son 2
Harold son 1
Charles Russell father 66



Gertrude Russell death March Qtr 1933 age 52, Ashton.8d 1119

Hope this helps

Thank you so much Marj for your hard work.  I don't think the Gertrude I had been looking at was the right one.  I'm sure she wasn't born in Bolton but in Crumpsall.  The other children were all born in that area, Cheetham Hill, Harpurhey, Crumpsall, so more likely to be Ashton Reg Office although I don't know if that would be the nearest Reg Office to Crumpsall. 


I've made a note of the details you sent me but I'm still not sure if I have the right person.
