Have you checked to see if anyone on here has him in their tree?

William Edwards is a fairly common name, so trying to track him would be fairly difficult.

Have you got his exact date of birth, and who gave you the information about the daughters and the circus job?


Which one??
Births Mar 1904
EDWARDS William Aston 6d 228
EDWARDS William Aston 6d 249
EDWARDS William Frank Aston 6d 433
Births Jun 1904
Edwards William Aston 6d 403
Edwards William Aston 6d 428
Births Dec 1904
Edwards William Frederick Aston 6d 318

I looked for births in 1904, the poster shows 1907, was I just mis-reading the post, or have they returned and edited?

Free bmd does not give any births in Aston in 1907.

What is your connection?

What else do you know about him?

Do you know his exact DOB? It would help when searching for his death..................if he died after 1969
