Have you any birth or Marriage dates

Gwyn in Kent

Gwyn in Kent Report 18 Jun 2013 20:45

Using your information, this might be a possible birth for Edwin.

Births Mar 1928

Reed Edwin G R .......Templeman ......Pontardawe 11a 1541

This might be the parents of Edwin

Marriages Dec 1919
Reed Edwin C ... Templeman ....Taunton 5c 836
Templeman Dorothy P .....Reed .....Taunton 5c 836

These are possibles, but you really need to start with known facts and purchase the marriage certificate of Edwin, Christopher's father.
You can find the index by looking on freebmd
