Christopher and Elizabeth Shudell
« on: Tuesday 23 January 18 16:19 GMT (UK) »
I'm looking into the history of my grandad's line. My grandfather, George Christopher Shudell, has a father named Christoper Shudell. He lived in England. He was a Merchant Marine. All i know on his death is that he passed away sometime between WWI and WWII; more specifically, between 1926-1939. I understand that he died coming back from Australia.  I don't know much about my grandfather's family at all. I do know my granddad had a sister and brothers named: Jeanette,  Jackie (male; not sure of spelling), Lee and Francis.  Jackie was in the invasion of Normandy  World War II

There are no Shudell births in England or Wales before 1949? According to FreeBMD, an transcription of the GRO Indexes.

But, there is a Christopher Shudel birth in 1901, Birkenhead Registration District.
Mother's maiden name was Doyle.

Did you mean England, or did you mean the UK?

Put "christopher shudell" in "The phrase" to search.

Looks like "your" Christopher?
