Williams family Pontypridd
« on: Tuesday 14 July 20 19:49 BST (UK) »
Hi all, Iím searching for my grandfathers parents names. My grandad was called William Mervyn Williams and it is his parents Iím looking for. I have found that William Mís father is called William Henry Williams born July 1896 And wife called Nellie. This is from 1939 register. Iím looking for info on where William H was born and who his parents were. Any help would be appreciated 😊.

You really need to buy a copy of the Williams/James marriage cert to establish his fathers name & occupation
