FreeBMD has 9 Shelton children with mother's maiden name Hewitt registered in W. Ham between 1914-1933, Gladys being the first in 1914 and Reginald the last in 1933. Looks like a set of twins in 1925, Charles and Ivy E.

Hi Phil

Welcome to the boards.

The only way you will find any photo's, is if you find any other GR members who are connected to your family.

To do that, you need to click on "Search Trees" above.........and then click on "Search All Trees" from the drop down menu.

According to an earlier post, there is member by the name of Adrian who has your Father in his tree.

When you have "Search All Trees" from the drop down menu, enter your Fathers details and see what you come up with.

You can then make contact with any connections you find, by sending a message via GR.
