Hi CaroleW.
Thanks for the information and for the helpful advice. I find the advice you have given me concerning other sites to look at most helpful as I am new to genealogy and dont really have any idea where to start! :)
Sorry if I sound slightly ignorant.......but what is the GRO index?

Hi everyone.
My great grandfather HENRY JAMES GATFIELD b 1890 was born in queensland australia. He came over to England in 1906 with his parents and siblings.
He married GERTRUDE KNOTT at Victoria Wesleyan Chapel,Grecian Street (date unknown).
The family lived at 18 Calder Road BOLTON and had 4 children.
From my grandmothers birth certificate,dated 1922, I have seen that his occupation was as a domestic gardener.
I know the name of his parents and his siblings but that is all I know and am desperate to find out more information- particularly when he died. There is also a possibility that he was imprisoned at some stage and any information about this would be very gratefully received.
Thank you

Still looking for any info regarding the Knott family from Bolton. I am very new to family research and computers so please bare with me! I am trying to find out information about my Great grandfather- Henry James Gatfield. All I know about him is that he came to the Bolton area of England,from Australia,during the 1st World War.

Henry married a Gertrude Knott and had 4 children.
1) son born 1918.
2) daughter born 1922.
3) daughter born 1926.
4) daughter (no other information known)

The children were born in Bolton.

Henry spent time in prison. For what,when or where I do not know but would dearly love to find out.

The only thing is that I just do not know where to begin. Any ideas or suggestions would be gratefully received. I hope that I have posted this in the correct place too!!!
