Robert Taylor - Hebburn to Manchester

Seeking Family members related to Robert Taylor who moved from Hebburn County Durham, to live and work in Manchester.

My Uncle Robert Taylor joined the Manchester Police Force, He married a lovely Manchester Lady, and they had one Son and two Daughters.

Maybe you are a friend or relation to the Taylor Family, I am trying to contact my Cousins (Robert Jr and Norma )who may still live in or around the Manchester area -For many years the Taylor family had a shop in Manchester maybe you or your senior family members can remember the Taylor family. Maybe one of your relatives was also in the Manchester Police Force and have memories or details to share regarding my uncle Robert Taylor who played in the official Police Band .

Any information or links no matter how small will be of great help.

My late Uncle Robert Taylor was a keen photographer and the Taylor siblings may have some photos of my late grandmother 'Ellen Taylor' that Robert took over the years on his visits home to the North East

Can you help with information regading my 'Taylor' cousins.

Regards and thank you for reading my Journal

PHELAN SCANLON, Said goodbye to his parents Phelan and Bridget in Hebburn on Tyne, County Durham.

To his younger brothers and sisters also left behind, this was to be the start of a new life, truly an new life adventure for him and his brother Peter, who was going to travel with Phelan.

At the tender age of 19years, PHELAN's life in CANADA moved forward yet again when on 4th August 1916, he signed for the-
'200th Battalion - Canadian Overseas Expeditionary Force'
I have recently found a photo of Phelan in uniform, and hope to post it with my Journal soon.

Born in BELFAST -IRELAND on 15th April 1897. PHELAN SCANLON was my Great Uncle, as my ongoing research unfolds more of PHELAN's life I am so proud of what he achieved.

If you have any details that would help my research into the SCANLON family history, all I would ask is please do post a message.If you have any photographs of Scanlons, please consider posting on site. Maybe you also had a relation who served in the Canadian Forces at the same time as Phelan if you did please post a reply. Sincere thank you and many Blessings to all who can help.

Regards, Summer
