Im trying to find my grandfather ive never met him before His name is James John Miller born in oct 1922 he lived in morgan street st helens in 1949. His parents names were James Job Miller and Annie Miller nee Martlew. I think James Job died in 1990. If anyone reads this that is from the St Helens area that knows anything about James John or any relatives please let me know.
Many thanks.
