Sue - have you found his birth record?

If so, what was the mother's maiden name?

Where is Radcliffe?


Sue Report 14 May 2013 20:35

Hi, Too many bradshaws to be sure that I have the right one. Trying to find his mothers name, that is the problem. I thought it might be Yates but no proof. Radcliffe is in Lancashire.

Marriage to " Private " in Heywood, Lancashire, England

Maybe if you could contact the tree owner they may have more info on that first marriage partner

............Unless of course, this is your tree !


Sue Report 14 May 2013 22:00

Hi, Yes it is my tree. I have checked out info. from Tempest & Mike and the street address for 1911 checks out with Military records for John Bradshaw, and gives Rosa as next of kin. I somehow need to check 1937 Electoral Register for 1937 for Radcliffe area to see if James, John & Rosa appear on it. If they do- bingo.
Thank you all for your help, you all do a great job.
