Phil’s family tree

My father started researching his family tree in the late 1990’s. I decided to put some of the information online, and as a result have been able to make contact with others who were researching in the same area. This is all “work in progress” and any further information or corrections are always welcome.

This page goes as far back as my grandparents.

Information about occupations (shown in italics) is mainly derived from census records and marriage certificates.
