Hi

The house where Karen lives was built we think in the early 1900's. It could have been built as accommodation for miners in the Gwersyllt mine.

We are interested in the names of occupants of the house especially those who may have died there, maybe a child?

When you go to your local records office as suggested, you might find out who was living there from electoral rolls and directories such as Kelly's.

can try the landsearch registry, there is a fee, but not sure how much. if your house is owned via the local authority they would probably have records of previous tenants, or registers of electors for who lived in the house. our house was previously council owned but when we bought it they had to put the sale through without the landsearch as they were unable to find out who the land the house was built on belonged to.took em about six months and cost about £200 that was in 2000. If it was built prior to 1911 you would be able to find it on the census. try any local history groups, they usually have older members who may remember.sue:):)

If you think the house was built by 1911 it is worth using the 1911 census to look up the address and see who lived there. You can do this on FMP site
If it was not built then a local estate agent will probably know when they were built and the other suggestions are all very helpful especially the voters lists
