red mail Wilding Family search
Several years since last post and renewed search into the William Wilding family (born 1905). This branch moved to Coventry (from Worcestershire) in the early 1900's (perhaps 1900 itself). James William the eldest brother. Siblings Alfred, Annie Elizabeth, George Albert & Lilian Rose. Last time around I made contact with Patricia via Honeybee who were related to Annie Elizabeth and having misplaced their contact details would love to renew friendships. We last meet between 2012 & 2015 in Hinckley as I recall they lived in Nuneaton. I hope someone can put us in touch again. Thanks Tony
Am looking to identify a group of WAACs in a photo I have which was taken in 1917-18. One might be Agnes Compton b. Coventry in 1899 daughter of Joseph and Emily nee Powell. Agnes married Thomas Starling in 1919 and died in 1972 in Coventry. If you know of Agnes and if she joined the WAAC in WW1 do please get in touch.
LAST SEEN AT 1139 FOLESHILL ROAD / CV6 6EP / EARLY 1964 Paul Cash / it was known that he had been working in Glasgow Scotland and traveling back and forth to the above address , where his wife or girlfriend was known as Elizabeth Cash. it is thought that for some reason that the father Paul Cash was afraid that he would have been in some trouble (edited by CuriousFox for privacy reasons) if he had returned to the property. This resulted in the both parents feeling that they had to leave without the child , I believe this was totally through fear of some sorts , I would much love to sit down with mother or farther or both, just so we can chat and understand the truth, i.e. I dont even known my true date of birth, it is also believed that my parents may have been Traveller's / Tinkers / Gypsy ? but this is unsure . thank you for reading this . My name is also Paul as I was named after My father.
