Irish ancestor working as servant...


I know I've seen this once on the internet but have failed to find since...

Mary Gallagher working as a servant in Drake Street or Yorkshire Street, Rochdale in 1881.

Her marriage cert says she was living in Drake Street in 1886!!!! I have her in 1891 and 1901.

I have searched paper records in Rochdale but also failed to find her...

Would appreciate anyone's help or advice please?


Really sorry didn't respond earlier. I've been waiting for some certificates etc., to arrive...

Thank for you for looking this up for me. I'm not sure that May is the person I'm looking for as Mary was supposed to be 23 in 1886 when she was married which would make her 18 in 1881!!! I'll keep an open mind though.

Thanks again anyway.
