WALKER family East London


Active member
Hi, I am having real problems trying to trace my line of Walkers, I have a marriage certificate for Alfred Walker born abt 1887/8, the marriage cerificate states he was living in Stratford, District of West Ham at the time of the marriage, he was 34 in Aug 1922, he married a Mary Ann Cable she was 27 yrs old. His Father's name is Edward Walker. I have managed to find the Cable line, but the Walkers line is a minefield. I think they are definitely all based in the East end, around the Bow, Bethnal Green, Poplar area, but still I cannot confirm his parents. I must be doing something wrong somehow, anyone got any tips on searching or able to help in any way.

Many Thanks
