Could anyone please help me with the following?

My grandparents were JAMES JOHN FALLON, and MARY OLIVE FALLON, both born
in Liverpool around 1901-1907
They both lived in Blackburn, and died there in the 1980's, having lived
at 10 ENAMEL STREET for around 40 years.
My information so far states that my GGFather JOHN JOSEPH FALLON came
originally from BALLYSADARE in CO SLIGO. Born in 1882 he at some point moved
to Liverpool and served in the Great War. He died on the 20 July 1918 aged
36 and was buried at Blackburn cemetry, so he must have moved to Blackburn
at some time during his life. There was talk that he came from SLIGO with
two brothers, one of which was named DOMINIC.
My grandparents are both said to have worked in the hotel and catering
trade and had worked on the ISLE OF MAN (I think this is where they met.) I
believe they also both worked in a local (Blackburn) Hotel or Pub, it may
have been the ADELPHI or another situated on the Boulevard in Blackburn.
My Grand father also is said to have been based at DOVER during the Second
World War in the ACK ACK Regiment.

There is some confusion to my Grandmothers maiden name, my father
remembers a lady referred to as Grandma TAYLOR, but he also heard that my
Grandmother's maiden name could have been CURTESS-GRAHAM (or a variation on
the spelling).I believe that the lady referred to as Grandma TAYLOR also
lived in ENAMEL STREET Blackburn. Another name which my Father vaguely
remembers to be associated on my Grandmothers side is SCHENK (again this may
not be the correct spelling).

I would like any information possible or advice on where to look to get
the information, and any help would be gratefully received.
