I am looking for family members on my Dads side of the family who may be able to help me trace my family tree. My Grandfather was Joseph Halloway from Bolton, Lancashire and he married Irene Halliwell, my Grandmother, who I think was from the Newcastle area. Don't have any information further back than my Grandparents on my Dads side but have traced my Mums family back to 1580! Would love to do the same with this search. Any help much appreciated.

You can easily find info..........buy a copy of their marriage cert

Have you tried to do any research?

There is a Halloway/Halliwell birth in Co Durham in 1954

No corresponding marriage - had the mother been married before?

Also two pre-WW2 births in Newcastle on Tyne

IF and only IF, the death is right.............this is probably her birth

Births Dec 1913 (>99%)
Halliwell Irene Perryman Easington 10a 1015

Now you can research her antecedents..............and her siblings

There is no sign anywhere of a marriage between Joseph and Irene, so you will not be able to verify info about their respective fathers......unless they married outside of England/Wales

Thank you so much for all help received. The Irene Halliwell you have found is definitely the right one as the dates and places all add up to what I already know. Will carry on searching. Thanks again.
