Trying to find descendants of the above. His parents were James and Annie Webb nee Taylor. He was a Colour Sergeant Major in the Green Howards Regiment. His siblings were William Webb, Frederick Webb, Richard Webb. A;lice Webb and Oliver Webb.

Other information I have is that James Webb was born in Donnington in Gloucestershire.

Would love to hear from any descendants of the Webb Family.

Best wishes and good luck with your family trees!

Herbert Edward Webb is my paternal grandfather. I have also been doing research on him and his brothers and sisters, based on what his son, my father left me with when he died. Are you interested? I have copies of marriage certificatea and death certificates for them. Annie Taylor died on the 21 August 1924 in Bradford, Yorkshire. This is what is on her death certificate and Frederick James Webb (her son) is the informant
