I'm looking for relatives of Jack and Cherry Hardisty. Jack was my uncle and I believe he had a son called Graham. The last known address is Newark. Notts.

Was he reg as Jack or John? What age would he be? not seeing a marriage to Cherry?

the Graham Hardisty born Newark 1944, seems to have died in Aug 2015


JoonieCloonie Report 21 Nov 2017 17:39

The mother's surname for the Graham born in Newark is not the same as John E's wife's surname.

There is a Hardisty-Cowdell birth, however ... but no Hardisty marriage to the surname given as Graham's mother's surname ...

The Graham in Newark did have children.

One of them has a family tree at this site showing Graham 1944.

The GR member who has Graham born 1944 also has Carol`s mother and grandparents in his GR Tree
