Thanks Astra, I had that info too but nice of you to check for me. And thanks too Reggie - I'm hoping to find out more about Arthur Cudd, especially his later family in Rugby or Leicester - but any Cudd info about his parents is of interest too. Best wishes, Nicky.

And thanks Gins for the different posts and ideas. He did have another wife and a couple of daughters I believe but I thought they also lived in Rugby. There again he died in Leicester so that looks more likely. I'd like to know more about them if poss so I'll investigate that thread - much obliged. Best wishes, Nicky

A tree at Ancesrty has him marrying this lady, but there is no evidence to confirm this?

Hi, does anyone have any information about my grandfather Arthur Cudd (not sure if Brandon is a name added later in his life or his birthname) who lived from 1897-1957. He was from a family of actors from Birmingham (father Edward William Cudd, mother Beatrice Maud, elder brother Leslie, also Harry) and came to live in Rugby Warwickshire when he married my grandmother Hilda May Berry. My Mum Doreen Beatrice was born in 1925. Any info would be greatly appreciated, thanks! Best wishes, Nicky.
