Ainsworth Report 13 Nov 2012 11:22

Hello, I am attempting to trace the Ainsworth family who were located in St Saviours, Southwark, London, England. I have Robert 1907 - 1976. My Grandfather. Interestingly, he does not show up on the 1911 census! His father Thomas b. 1864, His father Edward b. 1831 and his father Thomas b. 1801

Any advice or pointers gratefully received

Bob

Have you got Robert's marriage and birth certs? Is that where you got his father's name from? What was his father's occupation?
