Bates Wellington Oakengates
« on: Monday 18 April 16 08:08 BST (UK) »
Hi I'm looking for any relatives of my late grand father Sidney Bates. Born 28 January 1928 in Oakengates. Mothers maiden name possibly Bailey? Sidney was in the Royal British army and was stationed in  TEL EL KEBIR Egypt, And married my Grand mother, Diana Valentine Forti in 1948 they had 2 children before immigrating to Perth West Aust in 1952.

Thank you
Natasha

Oh my ty soooo much. I was devastated when I found out my grand dad had passed, it was awesome to now find out that I still have an avenue open to get a glimpse into my grand fathers lives. Ty so much you've made me a happy lady.

Ok update. I must be doing something wrong because all I can find is birth records for all the bates related the my grand dad (deceased) Sidney Bates. I can't find any marriages or births of their own children.
I'm m really sorry but can someone point me in the right direction.
Thanks everyone
Natasha

Hi Natasha, my name is Simon Bates and my grandfather is Dennis Bates (born 1925, deceased 1999) who had a brother Sidney Bates who emigrated to Perth. They both grew up in Oakengates. Not sure if you ever finished your search? Best, Simon
