this website has been very helpful thanks to some caring people. I was provided with information on my grandfather and great-grandfather. My grandfather was Sydney Ernest P Bassant born 1882. His father was William E Bassant born 1857. Some records have the first and middle name switched. I would love to find out his parents names if anyone has access. William was born in Milton district - Minster Kent. I have also seen reference to Sittingborne Kent.
