Holdsworth, Dewsbury.
Am looking to complete the picture of my paternal grandparents' side to my family history. In particular, information surrounding relatives of the wife of Clifford Craven (my grandfather) namely, Ethel Violet Holdsworth. Born in 1890, Ethel lived in Dewsbury and her parents were William Andrew Holdsworth, and Harriet Ellen Holdsworth(nee Robinson). Ethel had a brother Tom who emigrated to Australia. It's possible she had a sister Mabel who lived in Withernsea, a sister Dolly (Christie) who moved to Herts and a sister Nellie who at one time lived in Brentwood. There may be a surname Ingram linked to her (possibly a Leslie and Rita). It is also possible that Lennie was her brother. Ethel married in 1923 and settled in Wisbech,Cambs. (My father Edward was Ethel's youngest child; she also had 2 daughters - Margaret and Betty, both deceased). Any help with these facts would be most welcome.
