Keith Williams (my grandad) born in sheffield, haven't got the exact date but would probably be around 1940 give or take a couple of years. His father george Williams married elsie dennell. As well as having Keith Williams they also had a daughter Margaret Williams. I have little knowledge of elsie's side but none of George Williams. Would love to know who his dad was and who he married and his grandfather. Any information would be much appreciated.

Hi Peter, hi emeltee,

Thanks for your replies. Your information is correct, my grandad was born on 7th March 1939 and the rest my nan confirmed. I was wondering about elsie dennell, i'm curious as to where she was born? Also, I'm confused as to who joan M Williams is?

Thank you.

It won't show you anything if you are looking for a Joan M Williams as Joan married a Herbert Elsworth in Sheffield in 1945

Joan Margaret Elsworth died Mar 1978 Sheffield 3 1532 dob 13 Nov 1927

The dob matches that given in the 1939 register.

No i mean it wouldn't show me any information at all for anyone, but i've actually worked it out and i'm having a look now.
Joan margaret williams, i was confused you see when you said Joan.
I think everyone called her magaret instead of joan, i don't know why but that is my grandads sister and she was around 10 years older than him so it's correct.

Thanks emeltee.

I've checked both the Gro site and FreeBMD from1865-1869 and nothing coming up. Nor can I find a baptism. I did, however, find this burial -

Maurice Williams buried Christ Church, Heeley, Sheffield 1 April 1924 aged 57. Address 8 Court, 3 House, Oak Street, Heeley.

57 in 1924 gives a birth year of 1867.
