Looking for my DEW relatives and descendants who were born in Manchester - Barton on Irwell District.
My grandfather's sister AGNES WILDE married WALTER NORTON DEW, Norfolk 1936 then moved to Manchester. Their children were WILFRED THOMAS DEW b 1944, BRIAN R DEW 1947 and CHARLES W DEW 1949.

Last known address of Agnes and Walter was in 1955 at No 22 Sunnyfield Road, Prestwich.

Love to hear from relatives to exchange info and pics.

The chances of anyone related seeing your thread must be very small

Use 'search all trees' to look for people researching the names you have in your tree

Or buy the death certs of the parents for details of the informants

Wilfred is on 192 for 2002..........presumably opted out of the public ER after that year.

Have you tried the phone book?


Reggie Report 11 Mar 2013 17:18

Brian seems to be on the ER ..........if you wish to make contact, buy credits on 192 for full details
