Re: Further identification

As you know from this post i was very fortunate in finding the whereabouts of my three gt uncles who sadly were all killed in France. My grandfather was their half brother and was Thoma...

I got carried away and found a James Wright who died in Springburn in 19...

I know there are hundreds but i have narrowed it down to a guess that he may have married between 1911 and 1925 (his father died in 1925 i would have thought the son would have been the witness. In this case it's his...

Not so sure i would have taken a chance with him in Kelvin. Thanks to help from TS i have him now. He did indeed die from chronic bronchitis and heart prob...
