My great-uncle, Lawrence Frederick Owen b1883, was a musical director for Stoll Empires during the 1930s and 1940s. Does anyone know if there are any archives that would have any information about where he performed?

Google "The Stage Archives". For £5 you can purchase a 24 hour pass to search the archives of The Stage newspaper.

This site (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moss_Empires) might give you some pointers as to which theatres to look for in any searches.

Thanks Sue, I'll take a look at these. I believe he played at the Wood Green Empire amongst others but haven't been able to find information out about him.

I tried that a while ago and did put a request in the guestbook - I can't find it now though! There are some interesting photographs on the site but I couldn't find anything about my g-uncle :(
