Thank both of you for your words of kindness.
I should have put Daniel Hill (no Street) sorry My uncle and aunts names were Ernest Frost and Hilda Cornthwaite nee Frost. Both shops were at the bottom of Daniel Hill close to the Library and swimming baths
Dad worked in the Steel Works but used to peel potatoes behind the â€˜chippieâ€™ after his long shift at work, don't remember much about this, thank goodness for older siblings.
My father and grand fathers name was Alfred. I got copy of fatherâ€™s birth certificate, and from the information gained from that I was then able to get a copy of my Grandfathers marriage certificate finding out from that that his father was William.
My grandfather worked in the mines when my father was born and strangely my maternal grandmother was a Lindley or Linley. Itâ€™s a minefield isnâ€™t it? :blink:
