YOUNG, Edward W. J.

John Report 3 Sep 2013 15:21

I am looking for information on a cousin Edward W. J. Young, born in 1921 in Kensington/Chelsea . I would be so grateful to hear from anyone who may have any knowledge of him. Sadly I do not have much to go on, but you never know what may turn up. His mother was Wilhelmina Young (nee Wilhelmina Nellie Spencer Baxter and known by her family as "Bobbie", she was born 1896 in Fulham, London, and died 1944 aged 48 years). I have found a reference to his death around April 1992 in the Haringay area of north London. Thank you in advance for any information you may have.

Hello John and welcome to the Community boards.

There are also a couple of other members on this site who possibly have Edward in their trees.

If you click on Search (above) and then click on Search All Members Trees and fill in the details, you will see what I mean.

You have the opportunity to contact the other members for further informaton.

I'll send John a message on how to return to his thread. :-)

If you buy the death cert, you may find that the informant was a relative

Have you looked for marriage info?
