I am trying to find out as much information about my great
grandfathers father as I can. I have been waiting a long while for a
photocopy of my great grandfathers birth certificate but no joy!
My great grandfathers name was Joseph Redding born in 1880 in
Dublin, Ireland. He was living with Elinor Swann & her family in
Cambridge on 1881 census. His mothers name was Mary born 1860/61. In
1901 census they were living in Newton-In-Makerfield, Lancashire
which is now Newton-Le-Willows, Merseyside. Mary was listed as a
widow in 1901.
I am hoping that his father was still alive in 1891.
If you can find me any information I would be grateful.
