Important Locations in England for Grimshaw Family History
The two most important locations for Grimshaw family history are in Lancashire, which is in the northwest part of England. The closest major city is Blackburn. The two locations are the Grimshaw site in Eccleshill Township, about 3 miles southeast of central Blackburn (near Darwen), and Clayton-le-Moors, which is about 6 northeast of central Blackburn. A regional map on a companion webpage shows other important surrounding locations.
Appreciation is expressed to the British Ordnance Survey for making maps available online through its Get-a-Map feature on its website.
