William H Rooker
« on: Monday 14 November 16 18:48 GMT (UK) »
William H and Enid A Rooker were living in Impington from 1953 till 2009+. In 1947 William H Rooker married Enid A Smith in Bury St Edmunds. They had four children, all born Cambridge (Impington). Enid Adelaide Rooker died Cambridge 2009. I found Enid A Smith born 1924 at Bury St Edmunds, which fits the marriage, but cannot find Mr William H Rooker.

Any suggestions ??
