    Whitaker (or Whittaker?) Family 1940s

    Yes, it was very special. I'm so pleased I have this. I had to wait a year for it to arrive and it was well worth the wait. I've just sent you a message. Thank you for the tip on how to do this. Best to you too.

    Whitaker (or Whittaker?) Family 1940s

    Thank you for taking a look at your tree for me, and also for confirming that W G Whittaker was one and the same Wilfred Whittaker, Harold's brother. That's really kind of you. I've been trying to work out how to send you a private message through the forum, but don't know how to do this...

    Whitaker (or Whittaker?) Family 1940s

    Thank you so much for your reply Somersheen. It does help. So W.G. Whittaker who is mentioned with H.S. Whittaker of Wardle Bridge Farm in the phone directories from 1929-1934 was possibly Wilfred Whittaker, married to your mother, and brother of Harold Stott Whittaker. Would that be...

    Whitaker (or Whittaker?) Family 1940s

    Thank you for this. I've searched so many times for Harold S Whittaker but without any joy so this is the first one so far. I'll follow up on it and see whether or not he was associated with Wardle Bridge Farm or not. Thank you for your efforts.

    Whitaker (or Whittaker?) Family 1940s

    Would love some more help I am still very interested to learn more of this family and my dad's time in England as a POW. I am still pretty sure that dad was somewhere in Nantwich. I have since my original post here found a photo of him which was taken by J L Hart, Grosvenor Studios, 52...

    Whitaker (or Whittaker?) Family 1940s

    I think the father of the family I am seeking is Harold S Whittaker and the farm was Wardle Bridge Farm in Nantwich. I have googled this farm and it looks like it may still be there. Can anyone please help me with any of the following: 1. Did Harold S Whittaker have a daughter named either...

    Whitaker (or Whittaker?) Family 1940s

    Thank you for the quick response. It just may be the correct family although on thinking about it Ellen would still have been quite young. I'll see if I can get some more information from other family members. They might know things that I don't. Thank you again.

    Whitaker (or Whittaker?) Family 1940s

    Thank you Dave. This is helpful. Two questions: 1. The "governor of the land" then might not have been the owner of the land. Is that correct? 2. This Ellen Whitaker born 1927. Were her parents farm owners? Thank you for your help.

    Whitaker (or Whittaker?) Family 1940s

    Thank you so much for all your replies and for the links to POW camps. I have visited these sites before but no camp called "Salem" there? Dave Lambert: I don't think it is the correct Helen Whitaker. The Helen my father spoke of was either in her late teens or early twenties. I am almost...

    Whitaker (or Whittaker?) Family 1940s

    Thank you for your reply. My understanding is that my father's POW camp was called Salem? I have searched for this camp on the internet for a long while but have never managed to locate it. Has anyone else ever of heard of this particular POW camp?

    Whitaker (or Whittaker?) Family 1940s

    Hi I am just new to this Forum. My father was a POW in Cheshire from approximately 1944 -1946. He worked on a farm in Cheshire which was run by a family named Whitaker. (Might be spelt Whittaker?) They had a daughter named Helen and possibly a daughter named Mary. My father became very...
