Hi

I am trying to trace a William Kenyon born 1880 in Bolton Lancs to John and Mary Kenyon, his father was a Green Grocer.
William's parent's died in 1912 for his dad and 1919 his mum, so he may have carried on the family business.
I also no that they lived at 38 Grosvenor Street, Bolton.

Any help would be appreciated

Thank you
Valerie :-(

the marriage cert does state that father John Kenyon is deceased, however this could be a mistake as it also says that Eliza father's name is John Frederick when we know it was James Frederick
