Can anyone help me... I trying to find the ancestors of
Thomas Griffiths who marries Elsie May Armstrong in 1923 Birkenhead.
In the 1939 census Thomas has a dob of 13/11/1901
and Elsie M Griffiths a dob of 09/08/00 and Albert A Griffiths 03/02/1925 living at
23 Solly Avenue Birkenhead.

I think you'll have to buy the marriage cert to see what his father's name was.

Thomas Griffiths is a very common name.
There were lots of them registered in last quarter 1901 and first quarter 1902 - two of them in Birkenhead, if that's relevant.
