George Stanley Whiting - Bristol & Weston super Mare
« on: Friday 13 January 17 16:22 GMT (UK) »
Attempting to trace descendants of a Merseyside family, one of whom George Stanley Whiting, born 1890/91 in West Derby, was thought to be living in the Bristol locality temp. WW II, possibly with Groom or Sherlock relatives, and who died at Weston c. 1960.  Nothing is known of George other than those suppositions.  Any snippet about him would be most welcome from Directories or any other source that may be known about to local researchers or locally available.

Very many thanks both for your knowledge and expertise.  Have managed to identify the daughter and probably only child of GSW in consequence of your research who likely is no longer with us or if she is would likely not be interested in being reunited with relatives in Australia, which was the underlying object of the exercise, although it appears to complete a branch of the family tree - always the most difficult exercise to trace forwards in time. Again, thank you for the generous use of your time!
