Hi,

Welcome to RootsChat  :)

What type of information are you looking for?

Do you have him on any census and could you give us his year of birth please?

Hello! That was quick! I only know his wife died before him.. she died in 1921. He was also  a fireman  for Leeds corporation. I have old pipes of his with an inscription but no date.

 PS. I don't know the name of his wife, my grandmother. I was born in 1928. There was a picture of me with him when I was about 3, but I don't have it.

Did he die in 1932?  If so, the death index gives a year of birth as c. 1862

Forget I said that - that was the most likely candidate if he died in Preston, not Scarborough.  Might have to pour myself a glass of red....... ;)
