Welcome to the boards, Pauline.

Have you got his birth certificate for the names of his parents?


Thank-you

Added:
This birth?
Francis Jr Pankhurst
Mother's Maiden Surname: Story
Date of Registration: Jan-Feb-Mar 1933
Registration District: Medway
Inferred County: Surrey
Volume Number: 2a
Page Number: 1239

From looking in Search/Search All Member Trees, you have him born in 1930, and Ian has him born in 1932 - which is possibly for a December 1932 birth registered in 1933.
Have you contacted Ian?

I will try the search you have suggested and hopefully I will trace some family and then I can do some more on my family tree. :-)

:-D

FreeBMD does tend to stop in the 1950's. When the volunteer transcribers have finished, eventually it will reach the 1980s If you can't find subsequent marriages, deaths or children for them, come back to the thread.

See if anyone else has them listed on their trees and send messages. Although GR's T&C state that you shouldn't add a living person to your own without their permission, there is nothing to stop you recording them on an off-line version.
