Thanks, BUT

Some of the information says Ambrose (e.g. your link) and the last post Abraham and Martha.
I lived in Ardwick, Manchester in the early 1960s as a small child and much travelling of the world has now led me to want to know more about my roots. Carter, Beckwith, Connolly, Heron and Kelly are all names that form part of my family tree.

"There is a tree on Ancestry and it shows a marriage in Chelmsford in 1960 to Florence Barbara Gremila b 1923 died 1998.  It also has photos of them and other memorabilia.  He was born in Clowes Derbyshire and parents were Abraham & Martha.  He worked for Marconi and received the MBE"

All the above is correct so are you saying it should read Ambrose, not Abraham?  If it is Ambrose, my only issue is that Robert went to grammar school and then university which would be a little unusual as the son of a farm labourer in the 1930s

Am I missing something?

The trees on Ancestry showing Robert Franks, born 31 July 1915 in Clowne, Derbyshire, and married to Florence Barbara Gremila in 1960, indicate that Robert's parents are AMBROSE Franks and Martha "Pat" Milner.

I am also confused by your assumption that a Farm Labourer's son would be unlikely to attend Grammar School and University.  There were, I understand, scholarships awarded by some Grammar Schools based on the results of the Entrance Examination  (Malton Grammar School reckoned about 25% of places were offered via scholarships in the 1930's).

Also from the M/C on FreeREG Marthas Father was a Farmer so he may have had a little money.

Assuming that the Grammar School is correct and that the supporting letter for Robert's employment by Marconi is for the same person, then it is more than feasible - the school is at Staveley, Chesterfield, and Robert is born at Clowne, Chesterfield = no more than 4 miles apart.

The "Franks Family Tree" on Ancestry appears to be well researched, and well documented = source of the support letter.
