Is this Dennis' birth reg??

Dennis L Williams
Mother's maiden name Fisher
Mar qtr 1926
Preston
8e 691

and death reg (no middle name/initial given)
Dennis Williams
age 82
y.o.b. 1926
29 Aug 2008
Rochdale

if this is correct then I may have found birth reg of Carlton (in Rochdale reg dist )
Cannot post details of birth or marriage as he may still be living

If you make a couple more posts then we can use the private message facility

With a not uncommon name like Williams any other details you can think of (e.g. middle names etc) would help -but please don't post the names of anyone who may be living on the public boards

Suz
Thornhill, Cresswell, Sisson, Harriman, Cripps, Eyre, Walter, Marson, Battison, Holmes, Bailey, Hardman, Fairhurst Noon-mainly in Derbys/Notts-but also Northampton, Oxford, Leics, Lancs-England

What exactly are you looking for? Do you want to find living relatives or just do a family tree back through the years?

Right.
It looks like all the others were born in Rochdale so the family moved there between 1925 and 1926.

I can see 3 brothers but no sister with the name you have given.

We cannot post on the public forum any of the names found but I will try a private message to you.

You will need to look at Electoral Register sites to find where they are now and that costs money.

For anyone else who wants to help I have sent the details of the births of 3 brothers born in Rochdale from 1927 to 1929.

I can't see a birth for a sister.

I have found a tree on ancestry for Sammy Lou's family and have sent a message for her to be put in touch by email with the owner.
