Grenville/Granville Taylor born 1930's in Neath
« on: Monday 24 August 20 18:07 BST (UK) »
Hello. I am helping a 3rd party to find the following chap (if possible). His name could be Grenville "Guy" Taylor born mid 1930's in Neath. He did his National Service in the York area of Yorkshire (no idea of which Regiment) He may have married in Neath in the 1950's. I have found a marriage in 1957 similar name but as no 2nd name is mentioned I cannot be certain this is the chap I am after. Any help in pinpointing where I might continue to search would be much appreciated.
  Many Thanks.

There is a birth in 1930s and the marriage you refer to also.
There is a published tree which also shows a death in 2016.

As the place of birth fits, it looks likely.

He died 14.11.2016 and left a will.  You can download a copy for 1.50

I suspect he was known as Guy rather than it being a second name

If you have access to Find My Past - the U.K. Electoral Rolls from 2002 can be found on there - for those people who didn't opt to stay off the public register, from when that choice started.

You will find him on those registers and where he lived. (At least I am taking it to be the same person by the name and location).
West Yorks; ---- Illingworth, Marshall, Muffit/Muffett/Murfitt, Barber, Sanderson, Townend, Barraclough, Lister -- and lots more. Locations mainly in Birstall parish - Hartshead-- Drighlington --Adwalton --Mirfield - Heckmondwike --Kippax - Sherburn in Elmet.

Ireland ------Cleary, Whelan - Nenagh.
Dowling - Monasterevin
Daly - Westmeath

Lancashire ---- Smith from Alston , Johnson and Fairclough---- Tarleton and loads more from Tarleton and Accrington areas.
