Hi All I know long shot but here goes,

I’m looking for my half brother and the only information I have is mothers

name is BERYL PARRY born I think 1936ish she’s Anglo-Indian from the

Manchester area, she has 2 brother that I know of SAMUEL and GERALD,

BERYL was the love of my dad life until Beryl's dad stopped my dad seeing her

in 1952, Beryl lived with my dad and grandad with Anthony until Beryls dad came

and took her back home, my dad went in the army but tried to see BERYL on a

few occasion but Beryls father wouldn't allow it, Beryl had a little boy named

ANTHONY G WILKEY after our dad, after that the family had moved, IN 1959 my

dad met my mum but has never forgot about his son Anthony, after my mum

passed away my dad told the family about Our Anthony and I’ve been looking for

him since July 2005, now the only info I have is Beryl’s dad was a sergeant in

the army around this time and ANTHONY was born in Manchester Gorton area in

1952 Anthony Wilkey ,our dad would love to see Beryl and also meet his son

Anthony again as would the rest of the family ,if you know of any Parry’s would

shot but you never know lol Hope you can help Thank you for taking the time to

The only record of him is his birth ref under both surnames , looks like he is maybe now known as Parry.

Welcome to the boards, Loraine

Do you think Anthony kept the Wilkey surname, or started using Parry?

Do you know if Samuel and Gerald were younger or older than her, and do you believe they were all born in Manchester, or could they have been from elsewhere if their father was a sergeant?

Any idea of name of her Father?

The fact that Beryl lived in Manchester when she knew your father does not necessarily mean that she was born there.

Doesn't your father know Beryl's date of birth?

Who registered her son's birth?
