Hi Im trying to find some info anbout a chap who was born in Manchester but went to Malta and remained there until his death.
Does anyone have access to any records for Malta?

Ideally Id love to know if he married (any children) and the date of his death if poss. Unfortunately I dont know anything about when he may have married or died Im afraid.
His name was Elijah SHERRIFF/SHERIFF (may have been known as Clayton) b1920 Manchester England.

Thank you
Cassie ;-)
