Details from the 1911 census on the property 5 Bertram Road in Liverpool. A search of Ancestry.com was made after receiving a request from my daughter, who currently rents a flat in the property. She was curious to see if we could find out who actually used to live there.
Not only were we able to find out who lived there, (William Morton and his family), but also that he employed two servants.
The biggest surprise for my daughter was that the house, now split up into separate flats which are rented out, had 15 rooms in total.
This information was all obtained during a five minute search over a lunch-break in work. It just goes to show what you can achieve in your family history research if you know where to look.
