Caris Report 2 May 2021 21:03

Hi, I'm trying to find information on my nans dad who she only knew his name as fred moore and was in Cheam and tooting Surrey, but was also told he went to wormwood scrubs prison for robbery or burglary. I found online information of a Frederick Moore and a sen Wallace Moore in 1936 being involved in a bank robbery and I'm trying to find if this Frederick moore is the same person to be my nans father

On ancestry after doing my nans DNA it's come up with a connection with a lady named Melanie Smith who she has the name of Mary Cole and Henry Hampton being her Ancestors.

Can anyone help me getting further with Nything please. My nan is still living and I wanna help her get information on her dad or if she has any siblings from Frederick moore.

Frederick moore was last known to be in Cheam, tooting and South Wimbledon.

Can someone help plz as I have searched daily and not getting any further.

Not sure how many others................


Caris Report 2 May 2021 21:48

i dont know the correct date of birth for frederick moore. :( but the bank robbery was in 1936


nameslessone Report 2 May 2021 22:13

If Caris had looked at a map she would have found that Fulham is not particularly near New Malden.

I don’t believe the local newspapers are yet on the British Newspaper archives. Caris may need to contact local archives to find out about access.

Same question asked on previous thread that namelesssone has highlighted earlier up this page. A reply there.

Caris, please stick to one thread otherwise folks will be running around answering in 2 (or more) places or trying to flit between one thread and the other/s.
