Pratt Family

Christine Report 5 Jul 2013 22:56

I am having problems tracing a deceased relative. In 1901 census it states no children, then in 1911 census it states 4 children born, two died,. I have found one born & died in 1899. The Pratt family lived in Walsall, Staffordshire between 1897 & at least 1905, as my grandfather Jack was born in 1901, and his sister Kathleen in 1905 in Walsall. I know they moved at some point as in 1911 census it says they lived in Solihull, Warwickshire. Please can anyone help /advise in this matter of tracing the other child? I have tried matching births & deaths up, but keep drawing blanks. Chris

Hi, Yes all details you have written are correct. Herbert William Francis Pratt, brother of above was born in 1899 & died in 1899. There was another child, male or female I do not have a clue. Any ideas please would be very helpful. Kind Regards Chris
