Hi

I would really appeciate your thoughts on how to look up my husband's grandfather.

I have him as being born in 1877 in Malpas, Cheshire. But I can't find him or any of his family on the 1891 or the 1901 census, although found them on the 1881 census.

I know he joined the British Merchant Navy when he was 12 years old. Would there be records of recruits somewhere? I believe he was in the navy for about 20 years.

Thank you for any help. :)

:( I have another question, but I think it would be best put on another thread.
