I am trying to find out what happened to Alfred Robert Shaw born 1883 he seems to have dissapeared after 1920. We believe his partner was a lady called Gertrude Knubley or Nubley, she was a Sunday school teacher, andthey had a child together. Alfred was living in Farnworth, Birkenhead at the time. He belonged to St. Lukes church, Farnworth. I am trying like to find out what happened to him or when and where he died. We would love to hear from anyone who knew Alfred or Gertrude, so if you knew of them please conntact me.
