You've marked this as answered, which means people will assume that you need no further help

Find the birth registrations on freebmd............the one for Rees will give the MMN

Or purchase the 1956 marriage find out the name of John's father

Having said that, I can't see a marriage to match your info


found it............the lady's name was LouisA

PM from Tina:

"both john and rees lived in Greenford in the 1930s"

I've advised her to add replies to the thread, rather than PM-ing individuals.


Reggie Report 28 Aug 2013 11:29


Just buy the marriage cert................for factual info about John, and - hopefully - his father

No-one can help you until you get some facts

There is NO birth to match the death I posted for Rees
