    2. Hi Chris Many thanks for that. to be honest, I have a sub for FMP which I haven't used once for 9months, as have been so busy. Now semi retired, so can look again. I think I tried another newspaper site and found the Southport bit but didn't pursue much after that, so glad to get the tip.

    3. Seeking information on "Oscar Mills Entertainment Enterprises" They had an advertisement in the "Music Hall and Theatre Review" in August 1910. My great uncle Caradog Emlyn Jones (opera singer and music hall entertainer) is listed as General Manager and Assistant Director. Was this a short lived enterprise as they only seems to feature in advertisements during 1910. Thanks Stephen Emlyn-Jones Stephen Emlyn-Jones

I have a number of theatrical ancestors that I'd like to learn more about. The Edwardian actress Constance Collier - born Laura Constance Hardie - was a first cousin of my maternal great grandfather. Her father Auguste Cheetham Hardie acted as Cheet Hardie in the 1870s and 1880s - and his brother Archibald Alfred Hardie acted for a brief while. I'd like to learn more about either of these two men. Also of interest is a mysterious figure on my father's side of the family. Nell Taylor - or possibly her (American?) mother Sarah Taylor - were music hall artistes in the late 1800s. I'm not convinced that their surnames were more than stage names, but I can't prove it.

    3. Arthur was my grandmother's uncle. He worked with F A Scudamore until Scudamore's death in 1904. Arthur was a theatrical manager from about 1900 but I haven't found many references after about 1910. He died early 1940s in south London. His actual surname was Baddeley. -----Original Message----- From: Yvonne Marshall Sent: Wednesday, July 25, 2018 2:41 PM To: theatre-uk@rootsweb.com Subject: [THEATRE-UK] The Conquest family of performers and Eagle Tavern theatre lessees / owners in London Hi from Australia, I have a few of the above people on my tree and I wonder if others may be connected to them...?

    3. Dear Maurice Celia's (Cecelia ) Born 3rd February 1908. PARENTS: I have all the information I need on them. Ernest Frederick Baker born 1880 - an Army man had lots of medals. Mother: Nellie Florence Briggs - my grandfather's sister. Brothers: Ernest William born 1911, Woolwich and Dennis born 1920. I was wondering about Cissie's career as I was told she played the piano with a jazz band. The person who gave me that information has since died. It may all be pie in the sky, and this jazz band may have been a hobby, not a career. I don’t' want to put anyone to too much trouble - just wondering about this jazz band thing. Thank you all so much for trying to help. Warm wishes Ann. -----Original Message----- From: THEATRE-UK [mailto:theatre-uk-bounces+business=sbse.net.au@rootsweb.com] On Behalf Of Maurice Sheppard Sent: Wednesday, September 13, 2017, 3:16 PM To: theatre-uk@rootsweb.com Subject: Re: [THEATRE-UK] Searching for Cissie Ann, This is fairly sketchy information. I can't spot a birth in 1908 and by 1939 73 Cromwell Road Hounslow was occupied by a Joseph & Amelia BENTLEY. Before going hunting for musicians, I'd like to be certain that we have some correct names/dates.
