Michelle, you've got more info than many people who's families weren't private people!

Could you clarify what it is you particularly want help with.

for the last 2/3 years i have constantly hit a brick wall where my family ancestors are and were... MY dad( now deceased ) always referred to his family as a" private people" they didnt seem to share any information with anyone even my dad didnt know much about his parents or there siblings as such. My mum and i have search bmd, cemeteries picked the brains of what older relatives are left and still drew a blank, so if anyone can help in any way shape or form it would be much appreciated, thankyou.x We still in contacted with my uncle Derek and most of this info came from him, he was unable to track it back further as like my dad said " children were never told"
the facts that i know through trawling bmd , churches , cemeteries and family doccuments

my father......Leslie Jackson 1942 ....... of Derek 1933
Doreen 1936c(moved to Oz in 60;s)
Joan 1939c
they were born in Ardwick but then moved to Wythenshaw.

their parents : Wilfred Jackson B1911c.---D 1968c
Beatrice Alexandrea Green B.1911 -- D1985
Beaty & wilf married 2 July 1932 at the Rectory , Ardwick
Irene and Arthur were witness to this wedding

the only relatives on WILFRED'S side my dad and Derek ever mentioned were Arthur Jackson , Irene Jackson and a Cyril poped up every now n then....

Derek n dad always said that Irene was in the "nut house" (she had problems every month) Wilfred used to visit her weekly, the children and Beaty NEVER went....
I tracked "the nut house" down to 2 places......Wythenshawe Hospital and Cheadle Royal, but medical records are private and confidential so no avail there.
Wilfred;s parents : James A Jackson B.1873c .D 1952c
Rachel H Noble B 1870c D1935c ( Nobel)
listed on Birth index were other children associated with these 2 names
James and Rachel ..were :
James A Jackson 1895c
Doris V Jackson 1900c
George N Jackson 1903c
Irene Jackson 1907
Cyril Jackson 1910
Wilfred Jackson 1912
Arthur Jackson 1913
the Wilfred , Arthur and Irene and parents all match other documentation which we have but nothing for the other siblings cannot find anything more on them.

Beatrice Jackson nee Green ........
.Daughter of William Green. B 1871c in Worcester
Ada Tolly B.1872c ( Worcester) ?
SISTER of : Louisa B.1892c
William B 1899c
Sydney B.1901c
Edith B.1913

Nana Beaty said when she was a child they used to go to Worcester to see family every summer. Dad & Derek said Beatys family / parents were from Worcester but they only knew there names they never seen them.
the only 2 people Derek had recollection of on Beatys side were:
William Green he married someone and had a child Harold 1935c .... Derek knew this as he had seen Harold a few time when they were younger ( only 2/3years age difference)
Edith Green she married Richard Palmer and had a child Jean
my dad didn't know William but did know Edith very well, Edith was always at Beaty's , My dad being the youngest was still at home, even when he married my mum they lived with Beaty for 2/3 years before he moved to where my mum still lives
i do remember Edith, but only vaguely ..... Edith and Richard were both blind they did come to see my mum and dad once that i remember of with there 2 big Labrador guide dogs
Edith died when i was about 6 /7 ( 1980)

Derek has always said the "Girls" that being his sisters Doreen and Joan might be able to shed better light on this as they were closer to their mum as Derek was away in the army from the age of 16. Unfortunately Doreen moved to Australia in the 60's and he has had no contact with her or her children.
Doreen married and had the children in England but then emigrated so am at a loss there aswell all I know is:
Doreen married Brian Booth 4 children: Ian

Just today i did receive some positive news about my dad's sister Joan, i am awaiting on the tree owner , as this person i am looking for is alive and tree owner is awaiting permission to contact..... fingers crossed its a good result after years of brick walls ............
Thank you to any one who can help with any of this information
