My great Paternal Grandmother was called Doris M Radford. She married Percy Grayson in 1916 and they had a child also named Percy who was born in 1927.

Any info would be very much appreciated.

There were many more children than Percy (1927)

Look for their births on freebmd

I see son Percy had quite a few siblings.

One of which was George G Grayson who appears on the probate record.

And Marie Grayson who married Leonard Brearley......who also appears on the probate record.

Lauren Report 25 Jan 2013 11:06

wow this is incredible! Thank you all so much! Im a beginner at this and obviously out of my depth.

Sorry i just read the beginners guide after i posted this.

Unfortunately i dont have a date of birth for either Percy senior or Doris so ill have to start searching for siblings and adding up dates.

I suppose what i'm looking for is Percy and Doris DOB and their parents names. Ill go through all this information carefully.
