Is there anyone out there who had grandparents called Walter and Effie?

They were married on 15th April, 1914 and lived at 28 Thorndon Road. Walter was 23 and Effie 24.

Effie died when she was 41 and Walter eventually married Florence Field and went to live on Manchester Road at Crosspool. He died in the 60s.

Walter was the elder brother of my father Ernest, but for some reason they were estranged and we never knew anything about him, or indeed that he existed!!!

If he and Effie had children they would be my cousins!!

They had at least one child, Irene, born on 23rd October 1915, She married Jack Gears in quarter 2 1935.  In 1939 they were living at 113 Havelock Street.  Jack was a Lance Bombardier (service number 820177) since 1932, but transferred to the RAOC in 1941. Jack died in 1984, and Irene in 1994. Their children were Barbara (born Q2 1936), Maureen (born Q3 1937), Brenda (born Q4 1938), and Jack Raymond (born Q4 1941), and some of them may still be living in Dronfield.
