Hi i am trying to find anyone of my fathers side of the family. My father was william ashfield (Bill) he had 3 brothers Frank, Arthur and Jack. Frank married Hilda who later died. Frank married again and went to live in Panama, he was i beleive a christian scientist. Arthur married Hetti and they had children Celia, Pat, Alan, Keith and Phillip. Sadly Phillip died. Jack married a lady called Dolly and they had a daughter called Margaret. My father (Bill) and his brothers were brought up by Ernest Holtom and his wife Sophie/a in vincent avenue stratford upon avon after there parents died when my father was very young (early 1930). My father married Margaret Trendell and they lived in Welford Upon Avon. I am one of 5 siblings. My father died in 1978 and i know very little about his side of the family. His parents names were William Dowler Ashfield and Annie Sophia Ashfield formerly Lidzy. My family originated from stratford upon avon.
