Looking for living relatives of Maurice Moorhouse. His father was John Moorhouse, also of Baildon. (Had a boxer dog I used to walk, many years ago!)
Maurice was my fathers cousin and I am hoping his children will have information about other members of the Moorhouse family.
My father, Tom Moorhouse, sadly died in 1986 so I am unable to trace any one I know of other than his cousin Maurice.

You can find his marriage and children on Freebmd

http://www.freebmd.org.uk/cgi/search.pl

There is a daughter Christine who may have a tree on here...If that is her send her a message her account number is only a year or so old so she may still have an active email account

Andrew, born Baildon, also appears to be in someone's tree on here.

She would be his (Andrew's) daughter if marriage to Sandra (Nevins) in 1991 is correct.

Which of John's siblings was your grandfather?

You can research on line to find the history of the family.............

If you hope for connections on GR, you need to put your tree on here............deceased people only, unless you have permission of those who are living

Thanks to every one who has replied :-D, that was sooo quick!
jax - I thought Christine was Maurice's wife but my memory could be playing tricks! I do remember they had two children, a boy and a girl. Will follow up your suggestion.
patchem - making a note of this too.
Reggie - My grandfather was Thomas William, my fathers name also. I am hoping to find out what became of the other siblings, especially their time during WW1.
Many thanks to all once again.

His wife was Marjorie...who could well have remarried after he died in 1978

There are two marriages in the 1980s one Bradford the other Leeds which I suppose either could be her
