William Joshua Chalcraft
« on: Wednesday 05 July 17 11:36 BST (UK) »
Born 18.09.1891 Farmcombe.  Married in 1919 to Constance Mary Irwin at which time he'd just returned from army service (Royal Marines) and described as a Motor Garage Manager in Broadstairs. He died in 1971 in Folkestone, Kent.
He had a daughter, June Cynthia Frances Chalcraft.
I can find nothing more about his parents, siblings etc.
Can anybody help?
