Hi Kenneth

Have you looked in "Seach Trees" (top right ) to see if any other members have your family in their tree/trees?

Hi Kath, thank you for all that info I don't know where "search Trees" is I couldn't see it.However I was in Israel in May this year and went to my Grandfathers grave side at Ramleh War Cemetery and actually. That bit that you sent me was all the info I ever had about any of this family apart from the bit about Granddad Flexton. Once again thank you appreciate your kindness and effort for me, blessings Ken.
