Searching for Grandad
« on: Thursday 30 July 20 09:46 BST (UK) »
Hi Iím looking for some help tracking down my grandad. His name is Kenneth F Gilbert. He was born in Newport Pagnell (1929?)motherís maiden name Kerridge. We know that he married my Nan Jean in 1955 and that he was previously married but we know nothing else. We believe that he moved to the West Country. We have now ran out of ideas and donít even know if heís still alive or not. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to rootschat

Did he marry in 1956, Sidcup registration district.

If he is deceased his entry on the 1939 register should be visible, do you have his exact date of birth or his parents names.

Dorothy Evelyn GILBERT of Newport Parnell died 14 Feb 1980 and left a will

These cost £1.50 from https://probatesearch.service.gov.uk/Calendar/AddToBasket#calendar

Kenneth may be mentioned?

And John Francis GILBERT died 9 March 1973 and also had a will,
currently concentrating on a number of Staffordshire families.

Hello

They seem to be at 43 Lakes Lane, Newport Pagnell - on the 1939 Register.  John F Gilbert (born 1891), one other, and one officially closed.

The image has only two people at that address, one visible one covered.
