Re: [TSL] William Harold BIRCHENOUGH - how did he get back from China?

Hi Eliz,

Thank you for those. I cannot be sure of the marriage at present as it is 
out of the expected area, on the other hand he did give an address of 
Manchester on the shipping record so perhaps not. It is certainly a strong 
possibility. I may get the marriage certificate if I can't find evidence 
another way.

Thanks again,

Christine
