Donald Street, Orrell - Can't seem to find it HELP

Started by: barbarabanter (229) 

I am currently researching my family tree and seen on Ancestry my ancestors where Baptised at St Johns Church and lived on Donald Street, Orrell in 1907.

Fred Cheetham Baptised 5th May 1907 Mother Elizabeth and Father William Cheetham.

I have not been successful in locating "Donald Street" does it still exist??? Any help you can offer is appreciated.

Hi Barbara, there is a McDonald street in Orrell. It's onthe OS map revised 1926 -1927, published 1929 and it is still there.

It's between Chapel Street and Loch Street.

Could that be what your looking for? Maybe the "Mc" was missed in a transcription error?
