........... and Malcolm did not return to that thread

I did discover, and posted on the earlier thread, that there were TWO Charles Grices.

The information I found is as follows ..............

SylviaInCanada 12 Nov 2012 21:52

yes, there are TWO Charles Grice, one born 1889 and one born 1890

Both born in Lancashire, and both apparently moving to Leeds at about the same time.

They must be cousins!!
