A tree on Ancestry has 10 children of Thomas Frederick Vickers & Eveline Georgina Standing but no John.

Think you are a year out with a couple of the births, including John's:

Births Jun 1915 (>99%)

Vickers John R Standing Brighton 2b 289

But not finding anything on any of your missing children.

Arthur and Walter are old enough to have served in WW1. Have you checked out CWGC site for any possible deaths


Flip Report 30 Mar 2013 14:07

I've checked that GlitterBaby - and nothing with their full names, and those with just first name do not have any "other information". Difficult to be certain.


GlitterBaby Report 30 Mar 2013 14:11

Thought you might have done Flip.

Not found anything.


Flip Report 30 Mar 2013 14:24

Have you asked your parent if he/she remembers having these uncles, or spoken to any of the older family members? Often the best source of information.


Jacqueline Report 31 Mar 2013 11:49

thankyou for looking,i had looked on the military,and couldnt find anything, my dad died 2003 and my grandparents in 1979 and 1986,none of my cousins from dads brother know anything either, we didnt know there was so many siblings so it shows how much nan spoke about her family, i have traced all the others its just these 3 are elusive, never mind they will crop up when they want to be found i expect, many thanks once again, jackie

Have you checked emigration records?

Have you looked in 'search all trees'?

Several GR members have one or more of the names in trees on here...............
