Hi I am looking to find out more about Charles William Wood, born 1851.

In 1893 his daughter Emily (my Great Grandma) was born on the birth certificate he was a Mechanics Model Maker and lived at 8 Tootal Street, Wakefield . His wife was Mary Elizabeth Holmes (Formerly Graham)

I would also like to find out more about Mary. Had she been married before? Who were her parents?

Can anyone help me please?
