Hi All

I am researching my family history and seek any information about my grandfathers siblings, particularly about their spouse's families. My grandfather is Samuel Cheney b 1885 d 1958. The family lived in and around Leicester.

John William b 1878 dc 1955 married Florence Emily Faux in 1876, I believe she died circa 1906, he then remarried;
Emma b 1880 d ? - possibly married a William Lowe;
Charles Henry b 1883 d ? married Mabel Anne Hardy circa 1910, she died circa 1914 and he remarried in 1916 a Mary Agnes Garrity and
George b 1890 dc 1944 married Edith Hunt on Christmas Day 1914.

I would appreciate any information.

Regards

John
