The only way a living relative could possibly reply would be if he or she is a paid-up GR member...........

If that were the case, one would expect the member to have a tree on here.......so you could try looking in search trees

Sorry Flick it was the first time I had used this board and I thought this board would only be replied to by living relatives, once again sorry.

So you knew about Alfred's children?

It would have saved a lot of unnecessary effort if you'd said so

Thanks for all your help it was me with the Barnardo connection thanks to all the original help with the Barnardo boys on the find ancesters site I managed to connect decendents from every one of his brothers/sisters on both side of the pond except Alfred 1893, I did send a PM to someone who had Reginald, Alfred's son, on his genes tree but it was not opened so I thought I would try this site.

Sorry I left the site for a while but after an exhusting three days with my many (15) grandkids I went and made dinner then fell asleep in the chair oh the price of old age!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
