Thomas Fisher born about 1808

Struggling to take my great great great grandfather any further back than the 1841 census, pretty sure I've got him and most of his family all the way through to 1881 (then decedents up to now).
As usual the censuses conflict slightly but I'm confident he was born in Dalton Lancashire around 1808, his wife was Ann, born in Mawdesley Lancashire, and they were living in Chorley, Lancashire from 1841 on-wards. On the 1841 census ...

RIECKEN - Tower Hamlets

Johann Heinrich (John Henry) REICKEN, b. Germany abt 1848/9 and a Baker married (1) Franziska Bruckner in 1880, and (2) her sister Charlotte in 1889. We have found the family on 1891, 1901 and 1911 censuses. Have also found refs in electoral rolls and school registers for the children. This leads me to think they probably only had 3 different addresses:
1883 on: 181 St Leonards Road, Bromley
1891 - 1899: 94 Devons Road
1900 ...

Help about WW2 medal...

I have just received my Grandad's service records, including the following entry:

Medals and Decorations, Clasps and Annuities
M PS. 28.2.50
1939 - 45 WAR MEDAL

The blue writing appears to be pencil (for the "M") and pen for the "PS". and date.

Does this indicate that the medal was claimed? When my granddad died, his daughters helped my grandma sort his possessions, and there was no medal. They never saw a medal at any ...

Help with Irish Records on Find My Past

This is a very cheeky question, but is there a kindly soul with a full FMP subscription that could check and copy the transcription for "Amee Constance King" who died in 1913 in Ireland? My library access doesn't allow me to see the Irish records unfortunately, and this is the only Irish record I need to check.

Thank you in advance to whoever is able to check this for me.
