Father William David Moore - born 1866
Mother Sarah Cook- born 1866
In Lye Worcestershire
Apparently Sarah died in childbirth - can't find anything on that
Wonder if her husband married again.
We believe William (born 1902) had sisters -
Mary Ann Moore- born 1899
Winifred Moore - born 1901
Would appreciate any help on this

Not sure if i am on the right track here...........could it be that William preferred his middle name of "David" in the 1901 and 1911 census??

Thank you for all information - will help a lot - if anyone knows how I can find out where and who with William David Moore lived in the Midlands after leaving the workhouse I would appreciate it.

Thank you all for information. Got date of birth wrong of William David Moore (son) 1902 and Mary Ann Moore 1899.
Don't seem to be able to find out what happened to William David Moore(father)(1866) after 1911. His son William attended the Bluecoat School in Rotherham and later ended up with a family (don't know who) in the Lye Worcestershire. No idea what happened to the other children.
