Edward Leach R.N
« on: Sunday 25 June 17 20:02 BST (UK) »
I am trying to find out about Edward Leach, he was my hubby's Grandad and we know so little about him.
We were told he was a Barnardos boy and became  LT. Commander in the Royal Navy, and married a Rose Pridham, and died somewhere between 1958- 1960 we think, Rose Pridham came from Devon/Cornwall and they lived in Dorset when he died, and that's all I know........can anyone help

so the 1922 birth in Devonport is/was your mother-in-law?

We're trying to fix an era for births/marriages/resources.

Sorry, I have made a mistake, his wife's first name was Beatrice and as far as I know they were married in the early 1900's
