Liverpool History Society Questions

A selection of Liverpool history questions submitted to the Liverpool History Society

John O’Laverty Jan 1942

I am trying to trace my Grandfathers Wearabouts during WW2. I have found a Death Cert for a John O’Laverty in Jan 1942. John was an Iron rivitter and a ship builder.. I am from Southampton so was my father I have an address for John on my Father’s Birth certificate. This John O’Laverty could possibly be a relative and died in the Bomb raid in Jan 1942.. I am trying to find out details of where he may have worked in the docks. Was from Iish decent not sure if he had family in LIVERPOOL… contacts with Belfast John Joseph O’laverty.

Any records dock records or address details I would appreciate which would give me a clearer picture.. documentation in Southampton formerly kown in Southampton 1918 as my father was born there as was I and my 2 children.

Ship building was grandfather’s trade.. The Titanic came to us from Belfast so he ended up in Liverpool and if it is him who died in the bomb raid possibly in Stanhope St or close by ..

I am eager to know dates talley ideas of where I can find more details..
