his brother William at that time was cinema operator in Milford Haven. might be the only way to track him down.
There are 2 active cinemas in 1916 in Milford. Please send me an email address by PM and I can let you have adverts from January 1916.
I searched Milford and Steynton post 1935 to the 1950s for any Oxford burials none seen.
I had hoped to check Electoral rolls for 1916, however none where taken during this war time period.
I have still to visit Llanion Cemetery on your behalf.

Hi
I have a maternal grandfather, James Oxford, who gave his address as 32 Jersey Street at his marriage to Martha Ward on 31 July 1920. He stated his age as 23 years.

Thomas William Oxford was in attendance, James's father was shown as William Oxford (deceased).

Any help with James's birth and death - and family - would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks

Hi
Sorry for the delay in replying as I was abroad.
I have pretty much completed my Oxford family research including finding where the brothers lived, when they died and where they are buried.
I have a photo of the wedding of James & Martha which I am happy to send you if you can supply an email address.
I can also supply details of James's ancestors going back to a soldier in the Napoleonic wars. The family name was originally Hoxford and, probably, Hawkesford before that.
Regards
Fred

P.S. Thomas William OXFORD did not in fact die in Milford Haven.
