David, to follow Victor Morriss back with any certainty I'd recommend ordering a copy of his marriage certificate from GRO, that should confirm his father's details (if he knew him)

Thank you all, This has been so much help and it all fits into place. Any more on the Morriss side would be great but not to worry. I thank you all very very much.

Hi, I'm looking for info on Victor Morriss born 1900/1902 in Portsmouth, married Roberta Finley (Nee Leah) in 1937/38. I'm also looking for info on his parents and Grandparents etc, I believe his father might be called Albert.

Any help will be really appreciated.

Thanks
David
