I am looking for any living relatives of William Aratio Rodney Blake born 1908, Doris May Blake born 1907 or Albert Joseph Edward Blake born 1903. All were siblings to my grandad Henry Charles Wilkinson Blake born in 1904 and I would like to find any cousins that my dad may have. :-D

Welcome to the boards Vivienne.
Firstly, I suggest you put all names you have into 'search all trees' (found in search box above) to see if anyone shares this family.
You can also check for marriages using freebmd:

And if all else fails, consider getting this death cert to see who the informant was - I think the name must be Horatio really?

Hi Viv,
There maybe a couple of children if this marriage above is the correct one - a Gladys born 1925 and Joseph A probably Albert born 1930. Haven't found anything on them yet. Jo
