Dear Sir, I wonder if I may use your newspaper to try to find the descendants of my late mother’s brother who died in Cannock in July 1959.
He was Henry Briton Rose and born in Somerset in 1892. He had married Sarah Simpson in 1918 and had a son named Edward, born about 1925, who served in the UK armed forces and may have married a French girl.
When Henry Briton Rose died in 1959 he was living at 294 Pye Green Road, Cannock. and his death was registered by his son Edward who was then living in Birmingham.
Whilst Henry was born in Somerset, his mother came from Staffordshire and I believe he may have had some Williams cousins still there. Henry was a coal miner and was possibly blind later in life.
If anyone living in Birmingham knows anything about Henry or his son Edward or family I would be very pleased to hear from them as it would be of great help in my writing a family history. I can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
