Hi everyone
Please can anyone help me trace my Great Grandfather?
In around 1922/23 he left my great grandmother & 3 children in Sevenoaks Kent to go to London to find work & send money home. We know he arrived in London but after a few weeks, contact was lost & he disappeared. I can't find a death certificate & I can't see if he went abroad. Any help would be gratefully received.
Here are all the details I have......
His name was William Thomas Pow born 1893 Southwark, London.
He married my great gran Elsie Rebecca Borrett in the 1st Qtr of 1981 (Tonbrudge Kent). They had 3 children; William George Gordon Powe 1918-1954, Arthur Leslie Thinas Powe 1920-1973 & Olive Powe (my Nan) 1922-1996.
His Mum was Elizabeth Brindle 1858-1949 & his dad was Charles Henry Pow 1857-1929.
His siblings were ; Charles Henry Pow born 1879, Mary Ann Pow born 1888, Elizabeth Mary J Pow born 1881, Emily Florance Pow born 1883 & Ellen Pow born 1886.
Thank you xx
