Looking for a william bainbridge/baimbridge

Location
nr Leeds
From
England
Hi just wondering if anyone could give me a starting point on my wifes grandfather.
The details that we have are he was born William Bainbridge or Baimbridge we think he was born Jan 1903 ? and was a burma star veteran, we think he may of had a brother Tommy unfortunatly we dont know anything else, he lived in Huddersfield with his wife margaret and 5 children.
The reason for the different spelling of the surname is on paper cutting from his death it is spelt both ways.

I know this is probably a wild shot but any help would be appreciated

Hi Andy

for starters

William Bainbridge married Margaret Stott Jun qtr 1933 Huddersfield ref 9a 788. But in the cross ref it states Baimbridge

children to Baimbridge/Stott - all Huddersfield

Michael J/S Qtr 1933
Marlene J/S 1935
Patricia J/M 1939
Hilary J/M 1941
William S J/S 1947
Cynthia A J/S 1954

I'll see if I can go back in time now

Without any other info except a name, it is difficult to know if this is Margarets parents.

George Moreton Stott b 1869 Audenshaw Lancs
Miriam Palmer b 1874 Redditch Worcs.

married Sep qtr 1904 Wandesworth, London ref 1d 1153

children
Miriam Elaine b J/S1907 Clapham (Wandesworth 1d 619)
Margaret Jennie b J/S 1909 Clapham (Wandesworth 1d 561)
Barbara M b O/D 1911 Huddersfield ref 9a 557
Enid W? b A/J 1913 Huddersfield ref 9a 582

they were living at 38 Crossland St Huddersfield, and there doesn't seem to be any others that fit. A copy of Margarets mge cert would give the fathers names

Hi Dave, sorry to come back to you after so long but with one thing and another this has been far down the list .... my wifes grandmother is Margaret Stott J, born Nov 1913 and we have her mother as Clara A M Starkey born 1887 and if we are following the correct lead then we have Claras father as James Starkey but thats as far as we have got without hitting a brick wall. Any help would be appreciated if you can help, Many Thanks

Hi
The image of 1901 census is very poor. Mother in law Sophia certainly looks like Naylor

1881 census gives James HARKLEY 34, Clara 25, Florence S 7, Lewis M 4.

Ther is a marriage of James to Clara NICHOL, Jun qtr 1872 Rotherham ref 9c 844
