They had a son - William Ricketts Davies
Born in Ynysybwl in 1894, he married Susan Reed (1895-1970) in 1912
William was killed in WW1 in 1915 in France, They had a son , he was my father.

Hello William, getting a copy of John's marriage certificate should give you his father's name and occupation as a starting point.

Have you tried to find the marriage on FreeBMD? http://www.freebmd.org.uk/cgi/search.pl

You can then order the cert from General Register Office (GRO)

Thanks everyone for your help, I think I'm going to have to buy a copy of his marriage certificate, as you can see there are quite a few John Davies's!

Sarah Report 20 Sep 2012 21:37

I take it the Jones ar the witnesses? Do you know who they were? If not, might be worth trying to work out where they fit in! Were there no names at all then for either of their fathers? The next option would be to buy both of their birth certificates!
