I'm new to this site and can't quite get a handle on how it all works, so thought I would make start with this.

How do I find out who was living and working at No 6 Warirngton Lane 1868 to in the 1870s. in 1868 McGuire & Burns Corkcutters operated from there.

Found this on Rootschat

Philip McGUIRE, cork cutter master
Source: listed as cork cutter on his son Terence's birth certificate March 16, 1856, 10 Bow St, Salford.

Terence McGUIRE, cork cutter
Source: listed in 1905 on his daughter's marriage certificate as "cork cutter (deceased)"
(In 1879, 1881 and 1891, he lived in Wigan but I only have his occupation for 1881 - coal miner).

The 1869 Wigan Directory lists McGUIRE and BURNS as cork cutter/ manufacturers at 6 Warrington Lane, Wigan.
