Alfred L. G. McREAVY
« on: Friday 02 March 18 20:13 GMT (UK) »
Good Evening,

I am trying to trace details of my grandfather.

Name:         Alfred L.G. McREAVY (unsure about 2 and 3 Christian names)
Born:           1882
Birthplace:   Not known.
Religion:      Protestant

By 1914 he was living in Kingston, Surrey, where he married my Grandmother, May Margaret BEVAN.  They returned to South Wales (St. Brides Major, Glamorgan), raised a family and he died there in June 1954.

If anyone can help I would be very grateful.

Sincerely,

Tony Cocks

Thank you all so much for the information and so quick too.

I am now going to collate the details and, if I may, pose any questions later, possibly tomorrow.

Thank you once again, I'm so grateful.
