    Looking for information.

    There is a Matthew and Isabella Gudgeon with a son called Richard in the 1911 census. Could this be the same Richard H Gudgeon who married Florence Moore in 1912 North Bierley. Joyce said her dad was called Horace so maybe it was Richard Horace Gudgeon but known as Horace.

    Looking for Cranston family in Bradford, West Yorkshire

    I wonder what that can mean then, if they were called Riley and Mother was called Cranston then that would not fit really as it said that Mary Eliza got married in 1931 so she would have been called Riley not Cranston when Nellie and John were born????

    Looking for Cranston family in Bradford, West Yorkshire

    I wonder if Mary Eliza could have been nicknamed Minnie as Mary Eliza was Arthurs sister? If Mary is Minnie she had daughters called Jean, and Nellie and sons Harry and John, we think.
