Trying to find my grandfather Albert Victor Ambrose. I know nothing about him except that he had a baby, my mother (Eve Ambrose) in 1936 with Anne Havard Pritchard. I don't think they were married.
Any help would be appreciated.

Do you have Eve's birth cert? If so, what was the father's occupation please?

What do you know about the mother Anne Havard Pritchard?

Another thread asking about Anne Havard Pritchard:


greyghost Report 27 Sep 2013 11:28

The 1967 Essex death would seem to be a possibility as Fiona's mother's birth was registered in Romford.

From other thread -
I am trying to find my grandmother Anne Havard Pritchard. I know virtually nothing about her but I think she was born in Wales (around Cardiff?) sometime from about 1900 to 1915 or so.
She had a baby (my mother, Eve Ambrose) in 1936 with Albert Victor Ambrose but I can't find any record of a marriage between them.
I have had no contact with my mother either so I am very short on facts and any help would be appreciated.

Birth - Eve A Ambrose mmn Pritchard 1936 Romford, Essex

I can't see a certain birth/marriage for an Anne Havard Pritchard. However there are a number of possible marriages with male Pritchard and female Havard so wonder if this is where her middle name came from, perhaps from parent or even grandparent generation.

Info received from Fiona - for reference:

Thanks for your response. I do have Eve's birth certificate.
Albert is listed as an electrical appliance salesman. Her mother is named as
Anne Havard Ambrose implying she was married to Albert but I cannot find any
record of their marriage.
