PM received:

'...I've just received my grandfather's birth certificate today. The address on it is given as Towngreen, Wymondham (with Town Green spelled as one word). His mother is Harriet Laura Wells - domestic servant. '

So Harriet above is obviously the correct mother.

Unless the father is named on a document somewhere, you will not be able to find out his identity.

Sharon Report 21 Apr 2013 10:44

I'm trying to locate my grandfather's father. My grandfather (Leslie Norman) was born in Forehoe district, Norfolk in 1899. His mother was a maid I think to a Mr Aldis (not sure of the spelling) and my grandfather was the result of their assocation. My grandmother's name was Wells.

My grandfather married my grandmother Minnie Jannetta Tew in 1919 and my uncle was born in Norfolk (Leslie Geoffrey) in the same area in 1921.

Does anybody know anything about this? Either about my grandmother (who later married a Mr Morrison in South Africa and became Mrs Morrison-Wells) or about my great-grandfather, Mr Aldis/Aldiss/Alders/Allders/Alhous.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
