William Hancock
« on: Monday 05 March 18 17:05 GMT (UK) »
Hello, my name is Fred.  I am trying to find info on William Hancock( spelling may vary) who was born about 1920-1925 in Ireland and lived with my Aunt Ellen in Elsecar, Yorkshire in 1945.  He might have been a coal miner.  TYVM for looking.

Also
William Frederick Handcock 1919 Abbeyleix
William Hancock  1920 Inishowen
it's possible there could be more registered in Northern Ireland after 1922

Thank You for both replies.  I've done the "usual suspect"searches & was hoping someone might have him in their tree. Unfortunately, I don't have a spelling or any 2nd names. Cheers,  Fred

Once again, Thank you.  I'm new to all this and need to learn a lot, fast.  The previous reply gave me William & Margaret's wedding and had William resident in Dumbarton so they may have emigrated and then come back for this wedding??
