Glasgow areas

Post by trish1 » Sat Jan 09, 2016 11:12 am

I know very little about Glasgow. I've been researching a family where the children were born in Kinning Park (1900, 1902, 1904) and then from 1908 onwards they were born in Garngadhill

There is one child missing from this list who was born c. 1906 & 2 possibilities on SP

Dennistoun or Anderston - would either be the more obvious locality, given the registration of the other children?

Anderson is just the other side of the Clyde from Kinning Park, through the tunnel for pedestrians , now closed.
Denniston is to the east of the city centre, whereas Garngad is away out at the north east.

So either are really a possibility, Anderson is more local to the previous address but Denniston is on the way between the 2 addresses(and is also the registration district of the Royal Infirmary and Rotton Row maternity Hosp.)

Have you found the family in the 1911 census? Does that not help you out ?

Thank you for the info. So it still could be either - I was hoping it may be obvious. I have them in 1911 - for all the Glasgow births - including my missing one - it simply says Lanark, Glasgow. 1901 they are living in South Kinning Place, 1911 living at 47 Garngad Hill

I may have to take a punt & hope I get the right one first time on SP
