Can anybody help in locating a Richard Anthony Holmes. Born 1Q1951 registered in the Battersea area. Holmes is the adopted surname of Richard and from information that has been given we are led to believe that the adopted family came from the Nottingham/Northampton area. If anyone knows of Richard please can you contact me, as soon as possible. My connection is that my mother was his birth sister.

Many thanks

As you have given his adopted name, you must remove his exact DOB.................invasion of privacy . If you don't, GR will delete your request

As your post has no connection with Jacqueline's search, could you start a separate post for your relations?
And could you say what you are trying to find- Rose's birth family - dates? George's family? Have you got marriage certificate and birth certificate for information about parents?

Just for ref:
Marriages Dec 1905
JONES George Bristol 6a 226
RADNEDGE Rosina Bristol 6a 226
