By clicking on the OS Grid reference for each station entry you will see a current map showing the station site. This might be in the form of a street map or a general area map. The arrow indicates the exact position of the station. If you see a general area map by clicking on the third 'house' symbol form the left (indicated yellow here) you will see a 1:50,000 OS map, by clicking on the Plus (+) symbol you will see a local street map..

We are unable to help with any kind of family history enquiry as this falls outside the scope of the very limited research required to produce the brief history of a line or station that appears on the web site.
