Albert Lambe - Research
« on: Friday 08 May 20 15:12 BST (UK) »
Hi All

I am going to give this a go with very little information, hoping for a miracle. So apologies, in advance.

I am looking for a man named Albert Lambe, who has most likely passed away. He was my grandfather and my Dad's father. He was married to my grandmother called Elizabeth (Lizzy) Lambe (maiden name Bell) and had two kids, Albert John Lambe (my father) and Alexander Lambe. All of which have passed away. I was told that after the kids were born Albert Lambe left the wife and kids to go to the Army in England and never was heard of again. I am not sure when he would have left, but it would have been between 1944 and 1950. This is what I have been told. I am not sure if this is what happened but this is all I can say (in the meantime). I don't know his date of birth or full name. he might have been English but not 100% sure. We are situated in Cookstown, Northern Ireland.

Apologies, again but if this rings a bell with anyone please respond.

Thanks in advance.

Kind Regards,
Will

Welcome to Rootschat.

There’s no relevant Lambe/Bell marriage on FreeBMD (England/Wales). Have you looked for it on GRONI Online? I had a quick look using the free index but no luck with Albert Lambe.

In which year was the first child of the marriage born?

You have posted the same query on three different boards. Not good practice and it's likely to result in duplication (or triplication) of effort by people who are trying to help.

Marriage now found on another of the threads. Perhaps a moderator will merge them to save duplicated effort.

Apologies, I just assumed that only certain users would look at different forum sections. If that's the case, I would rather use the one posted in the Tyrone one, please. Sorry, if this wasn't done correctly.
