I don't know his fathers name, it could have been Joseph, the reason I say that is he named my uncle Joseph so maybe they used the Joseph through with the sons.

KempinaPartyhat Report 10 Nov 2012 16:52

No info at the mo

right you need to stop and start again Joseph was born in 1913 NOE in 1912 they started to put mothers maiden names on the birth registration so it shows as above BUT before that no MMN was give so where it says CRIPPS it was blank so its possible that the brothers and sister are born pre 1912

Now the best thing to do is get this certificate from GRO its the birth certificate for your grandad unless you know is fathers name??????????

Jennifer Report 10 Nov 2012 16:44

That's my grandad, can you find information about his brother and sisters, Thankyou so much

I really appreciate you looking for me, I only joined today so not quite sure what I'm doing. My mum sadly passed away 3 years ago so I'm just going on memory on what she told me. I believe that Harry, Ida and dolly have all died, but not sure about Elsie. I'm told that dolly was the only sibling to have had children.
