Give as much information in your next message to RootsChat as you can.

My great great grandmother died in 1944 in London is not going to bring much response.

Give as much information as possible. Names, maiden names, area where people lived, occupations, birth, death, marriages.

Then someone or many are going to be able to help you.

Welcome to Rootschat.

The main rule is start with what you know and work backwards.

So:  Your parents, their dates of birth and marriage
       Your grandparents
       Your great grandparents.

Free sites include

Freebmd:  www.freebmd.org.uk     for births, deaths and marriages in England and Wales
Freecen:   http://www.freecen.org.uk/     for censuses
FamilySearch:  https://familysearch.org/search/
Look for free trials on Ancestry or FindMy Past. The latter has an offer of a month for £1 at the moment.

Ask on here. Give as much information as you can, but don't mention names of any living person.

Thankyou to people who very kindly replied.
I guess i should start with my father he was born in Ludlow in 1928.
He has a brother called  who was born 1931.
My grandfather was called Brian Fury i think he was born in 1903 also in Ludlow
My grandmother was called Ethel( nee Bradley) i think she was born around
1907 in diddlebury shropshire.
I will see if i can find anymore dates this week.

Hi Painterleo and welcome to RootsChat....That's a good start. Ask any living relatives for any information that may help. Good advice from Groom to help get some background information.

You've used the present tense for your father and uncle - does that mean they are still alive, if so, you need to remove their name as RC has a strict no living person rule.

To start you off - from Freebmd, here is your grandfather

Births Sep 1902   
Fury    Bryan Joseph        Ludlow    6a   576

Checking this on the General Register Office site - GRO (also free) it shows his mothers maiden name was    NICHOLAS . So knowing that, you should be able to find their marriage and find the family in the 1911 census. We are not allowed to give information from that, but you should find it on FamilySearch?

Hiya Leo and welcome to Rootschat
www.familysearch.org has Bryan J Fury marrying Ethel M Bradley in  1927.
it also has
Ethel May Bradley living at Diddlebury,Corfton Batch , Craven Arms ,Shropshire
her birth registration is 1906
these records are something you can put down on paper .
Brian Joseph Fury is registered as birth 1902 at Ludlow - he dies jan / feb/mar/ 1959 aged 56 name spelt Brian
so we now know your grandparents were
Ethel May Bradley and Brian Joseph Fury - and thanks to Groom mmn Nicholas

 Spouse's Name    Susan Nicholas     
 Spouse's Birth Date     1876
