Title: Eldred Family
Post by: CV-S on Friday 13 May 11 10:00 BST (UK)
Hi there

On behalf of a friend, I was hoping someone could help out with this elusive family.
Dorothy Mabel Eldred was born in Lambeth c1889.
Her parents were Rowland and Ada.
Any help indentifying her in censuses, her parents in censuses or any other hell would be great!

Thanks a lot looking forward!

Is it possible to find them before their marriage in 1859 (appreciating Young is a very common name)?
