Welcome to Rootschat.

Have you found Sidney in any censuses with children? If so you can then use the GRO site to find that birth and it will give you the mother's maiden name.

Once you have that, use Freebmd to see if you can find a marriage between Sidney Bradley and a woman with that surname.

Born in 1895 he would be too young to show up married with children in the census.

Sorry, yes Jebber, you're right.

One of those born wrong time - too young for children on the 1911 and probably children will have left home by the 1939 register.

However, if he is your grandfather, what does it say on your mother or father's birth certificate? That should give you the mother's maiden name.

Marriage wasn't compulsory so maybe he didn't marry anyone.
