Hi im trying to find any information on edith birch from liverpool not sure if she was born there but she married my grandfather timothy mcgreal in march 1932 in liverpool. they had 3 children unsure weather male or female but definately had 3 children timothy was sent to war in 1939 he was taken prisoner of war and released in 1945 his marriage ended during this period as edith had moved on when he was released we would love to find out what happened to these children as they have sibling and a rather large family who would love to put the pieces of the jigsaw togheter. I can only find a marriage record for timothy and edith but no records for childrens births or even divorce records...so please anyone with a ancestor called edith birch please contact me

As no death or remarriage could be found for Edith nor any children you need to purchase the marriage cert to find out her age and fathers name and whether she had been married before

You should also stick to the one thread about this family to save people duplicating what has already been found before

hi jax thanks for the reply i really started a new thread because i dont think these children will of been known as mcgreal so i didnt think putting it on the other thread would of been any use to me as edith was obviously going by another name just a guess but i think thats the most proberble explanation!! but maybe edith had more family hence me wanting to find out about the birch family..im not 100% about this but think her mothers name was birchall??

May I suggest (gently) that you space out your posts...

I, for one, cannot cope with blocks of text such as you have posted

hi dea,
no sorry we dont have any information about edith birch at all..All we knew was that my grandfather was previously married and had children. i then found out he had married edith birch in march 1932 in liverpool


i have searched for births for these children but cannot find any trace of them nor for edith birch..


i seem to have hit a brick wall, i will have to try and order a marriage certificate but as im researching lots of different things about my grandad workhouse records/ british home child record/ military records my time has been limited.


i am now trying to throw myself into this research as my uncle is terminally ill he has been given 6 months to live and i will provide him with information about these siblings of his before he dies just something i need to do for him xxxx

Hi Stacey..........Might the children have been born to Edith's first marriage?

If indeed Edith had been married before.

hi holly

No the children were to timothy..I know this because he paid money to them my grandmother used to put money into a bank for them.

my grandmother died many years ago so we have no refrence to whom this money was paid to but her brother told us that my grandfather paid money on a weekly basis.


My grandfather married edith in 1932 and was called up for army in 1939 after 5 years
he was released from being a p.o.w and in august 1945 returned home but edith had took up with another chap


My grandfather moved away to bradford and a few years later met my grandmother

so realistically these children were born in the 30s

This is why you need the marriage cert

Even if her maiden name was Birch...there are quite a few in the Liverpool area that could be her

Dea Report 30 Aug 2012 17:20

Was this your grandmother's brother or Edith's brother ??

You know nothing about this lady...apart from the fact she married your grandfather.

We cannot find her if we do not know what her maiden name was or how old she was.

If she had children while married to your grandfather they would have the birth name McGreal mothers maiden name Birch....but there are none so she must have been married before??

Assuming that is correct family, Kate married and had several children, I will send the marriage and names of children by PM, one of the children has a tree on here I think , they may know what happened to their cousins?
