Scotland / Flight Lieutenant Donald Grisdale of Pollokshields, Glasgow
« on: Friday 15 March 13 19:37 GMT (UK)  »

I dont have access to Scottish records so maybe someone could help?

Donald Grisdale was born in Pollockshields, Glasgow in 1919 to William Walter Grisdale and Sarah Grisdale. The family had come from Liverpool a few years earlier. Donalds wife was Susan Brown Kippen. Donald became a Lancaster pilot with RAF 542 Squadron and died in action on Feb 14, 1945.

Can anyone find details of his birth, marriage etc? Also had he other Glasgow born siblings? When did his parents die?


PS sorry for the lack of apostrophes but I am on a French computer and cant find how to get them.

Australia / Death Edward Grisdale (maybe Gresdale) Sydney 1885
« on: Friday 28 December 12 00:33 GMT (UK)  »
I found a death of Edward Grisdale (spelt Gresdale on the record) in Sydney in 1885. Is there any information regarding his age or father on the record?

I'm trying to see if he was the Edward Grisdale who arrived on the Convict Ship Numa in 1834 as a free mariner and married convict Sarah Jones in St John's Paramatta in 1835 (she came on the same ship).

Thanks for any help.

In 1764 (May) a son of Solomon Grisdale was baptized. Can anyone who has the original records please tell me the name of the child?
