Hi, I am looking for any information on my husbands Grandmother and Grandfather. His Mother is Nora Moorhouse (nee Smith) born 1928 in Leeds and her sister was Margaret Thickbroom (nee Smith) born 1933 in Leeds. Their mother's maiden name was Secker and she came from Norfolk and must have married a man named Smith. She had a sister named Ivy Secker who married a man named Ernest Moorby? Morby? (Not sure of spelling). Any info at all would be great.

Thanks

Su

Hi Su
Nora Smith married Frank Moorhouse Dec qtr 1947 Leeds

There are four births whih could be Franks. Do you have any other bits of info which may help eliminate three. Like siblings, where he was born, parents details

Hi Dave,

Brilliant once again! Yes Frank (my husbands Dad) had a sister Kathleen born 1920, a brother Alan born 1924, a brother Ernest born 1917 and a brother Ben born 1919. Mothers maiden name was Dixon but that is the only information I have.

Thanks again
