I am trying to find the family of Ernest Sanders he was born in 1921 in Smethwick his Father was Ernest and his mother was Mary Jane Harris . I think from the research I have managed to do he was an only child .I would be so grateful if anyone out there that knows anything at all could get in touch.
Best Wishes Sharon .

How old were his parents on their marriage?

If we can find their death certs he may have been the informant

Hi Ernest was my Mothers cousin . His Father Ernest my Grandmothers brother . Just before Gran died she used to ask the question I wonder what happened to " Our Ernie ? Gran died in 1980 and for the last few weeks I have been thinking a lot about her , and would love to find out the answer on behalf of her . I hope that makes sense ??

I am guessing that Ernest born in 1921 has probably died himself he would be 90 years old now if still living but hopefully he might have children

There is a Jessie still living in Smethwick

Edit - There are also a few people that have both Ernest and Jessie in their trees...does'nt look like they had any children though

Thank you the Ernest that married Jessie Field was a cousin of the Ernest that I am seeking . I think the death of Ernest senior is quite possibly the one in 1965 I think my only option is to get hold of that certificate and check it out. Interesting the death of Mary in Crawley though.
