My grandfather, Cyril Moxon b 1922 died 1943 had 6 siblings (Dora, Kittie, Graham, Frances, Percy and Brian) all of which had their own children. Does anyone know of a link?

What did info did you want.



Susan Report 14 Nov 2012 12:17

Is there anyone left that new my grandfather. My mum never new him and was never allowed to be in touch with any of the family. I don't even know if they know she exists. So any help would be greatly appreciated.

If you go to search at the top right hand corner of the screen, and put in Cyril Moxon and date and place of birth. There is 1 person with him in her tree. You could send her a message.



Susan Report 14 Nov 2012 12:29

Already messaged her - no response as yet. :-(

Can we assume that your grandmother was not married to this man?


Reggie Report 14 Nov 2012 13:03

Have you tried researching the siblings and their families??


Susan Report 14 Nov 2012 13:04

No they were married when he was killed in sicilly. She remarried after that. Big controversy though already expecting my mum's half brother!

Don't we love a gossip.


Reggie Report 14 Nov 2012 13:06

Percy G is on the current ER on

If you purchase credits, you can get the full details.
Or you can look for him in the phone book

I have traced back the direct descendants of Cyril, and did find Percy G on but due to the sensitive nature didnt want to contact him direct. I was hoping to get in touch with one of my mum's cousins, maybe by email at first. Wish they did email directories like phone books.


Reggie Report 14 Nov 2012 14:46

An e-mail directory would be impossible

You'll have to do the research if you want to try to find cousins............although I doubt very much that 70 years down the line Percy is going to get in a tizz about his brother's granddaughter contacting him............he was 3 yrs old at the time of your grandfather's death.

The woman listed at the same address appears to be his wife.........try contacting her as a first step, if you really think that Percy would have a problem
