I am trying to trace relatives of the above who is my great uncle. He was born in 1884 in Marylebone. The last entry in BMD is 1911 living with his mother Eliza and his step father William Chapman in Linthorpe Street in Marylebone. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Have you tried "Search all trees" under the Search button above?

If you find a possible match you can contact the tree owner to see if you have a match.

I would suggest that you delete the automatic message that is already in the message box and write your own as members will not open their tree without first establishing the connection with you.

I have contacted members who have Ernest Beck on their trees and those who have responded are not relatives. It is very disappointing when people do not respond to messages left.

Edith Mabel Beck and Frederick James Beck are his brother and sister in law and their daughter was Edith Margery . The other Mrs Beck could be Ernest's wife. I'll go down that line and see what happens. Many thanks for your help
