Anna Report 23 Nov 2013 13:06

I have a family of five Banks brothers, Herbert b 1883, Arthur b1886, William b1887, Walter b1893 & Albert b1901, born to Herbert & Mary Ann [nee Haydock] - they had connections with Sussex, Derbyshire & Manchester - is there anyone out there with connections to this family?
