Its a longshot as I notice you the last time you were on this site was 2010, but on the off chance you get an email reply to this message, I'll give it a go.
I came across your post whilst looking into my fathers family tree. His grandfather and my great-grandfather was Robert Edwin...
Thank you DaveHam9 & emeltee.
That has given me something to go on, I will look into the possibility of the fathers name being Mountford. I had seen the Baptism of Emily Mountford Ellis showing the fathers name as James (I didn't however realise it had been crossed out).
I am new to Genealogy. I am looking for a point in the right direction to help find my great-grandfathers fathers name.
My great-grandfather details..
Edwin Mountford Ellis
Born 2 SEP 1888 Burslem, Staffordshire, England
Died Newcastle upon Tyne, Northumberland
He had an older sister...
