Marcus Report 1 Oct 2019 13:07

Looking for George C. Whitfield, his 2 sons George Sydney & Lawrence Dalton Whitfield.

They were owners / Managing Directors of Paget Prize Plate Co. Ltd, Watford, later to become APEM Ltd.

This is related to my previous post on the company.

Looking for anything on census and births, deaths, etc

Much better to keep to one post per topic, Marcus, as per site guidelines

And you can easily look on freebmd for BMD info

Much more rewarding for you to find info yourself
