Have you found the family on any census? If so, please will you post the details? Also, which child was born where?

James was married to an Alice with three children. Harriet Mary b1889, Florence b1892 and George b 1896. The family seems to move around and at one point called themselves Williams. James was born in Norfolk and was a chimney sweep. Alice has two surnames - Radford ad Morrey (Morray) and the children were all born in different places. Two in Wales and one in Birmingham. Maybe I'm looking in the wrong places but I can find no trace of him.
