Hello everyone,
I am new to this forum but have used the Liverpool/Bootle forums to great effect and always found the users to be extremly helpful and kind. Therefore I hope someone can help me or point me in the right direction with this request. I am building the PARRY family tree for my friend, but can find little evidence of her grandad prior to 1916 when he married her grandma Emma Harding. She has spoken to her 2 brothers who knew even less than her about him and so therefore am having to look further a field.
I am trying to trace my freinds cousins and aunt who live in St Ives, Huntingdonshire. I think they may be able to help me with information about our grandad Robert Henry Parry who died in Liverpool in 1955.
The family are called Parry and their last known address was Houghton Road, St.Ives. I have tried the Cambridgeshire news and have written to the last known address with no replies to either.
What can you suggest my next move is?
Thankyou Tracey

Hello Dave,
Yes Robert did marry in West derby in 1916. He married Emma Harding.
He gives his age as 27 which gives him DOB as 1889 but he married again in 1931 and gives his age as 46 which gives DOB as 1884/5 he died in 1955 aged 70 which gives DOB as 1884/5. He joined the army in 1904 KORLancsR, no8244
was wounded and pensioned out in 1917, no service/pension records exsist that I can find. He worked as a labourer in the match works in Liverpool after the war. I don't know if he was a Liverpudlian or if he came from Wales. On the marriage certs His fathers name was Robert Parry(deceased) Soldier in 1916 and Robert Henry Parry (deceased)soldier British Army in 1931.
This is why I would like to try to trace my cousins and especially aunt June Parry as she will be 80 now(if she is still alive) and is the oldest living family I have left to ask about him.
Tracey
