red mail Alfred Wilding
Hello, first posting on here and I'm looking for some help discover hopefully not lost but previously unknown family members. Please can any-one, especially local family historians tell anything of the Wilding family that would have been new to Kings Lynn as the branch in question settled there during the late 1930's or early 1940's. In particular family or desendants of Alfred Wilding (I think his middle name was Charles). He died serving as an infantryman during WWII in Burma but we know he settled locally marrying Kathleen in either 1939/40. Research shows their may have been children so a bonus if we could trace any that may exist.

Her maiden name has been obtained from her daughter's birth certificate so I feel it is probably correct. If anyone can give any information, I would appreciate it.

I am trying to trace William Walter DAWSON who was resident at 13 Lansdowne St, Kings Lynn at the 1901 census and his wife Elizabeth (nee RASBERRY).

He may have served in the army c1881, as I've found a possible match in the census at 'Grand Shaft Barracks Western Heights Dover', Hougham, Kent. Happy to share information with other researchers.
