Another brick wall

Postby Derek D » Fri Jun 30, 2017 8:50 am

Hello everybody,another new comer here.
I'm trying to find/trace my Grandmother's birth certificate!!
The only information that I have is,as follows:
Name : Alice Amelia Edwards b:19/3/1905 in Bristol d:Nov 1970 in Cardiff
m : Nov 1934 in Newport.Mon to Jonathan Williams b : Sierra Leone
m : July 1960 in Cardiff.Glam to John S Davids b: Liberia
d : Nov 1970 in Cardiff.Glam
Her father's name is Richard Albert Edwards and his wife's name is Edith ( not sure of her maiden name ) I've also been told that Alice had a brother.Ive looked at a Gloucestershire census and found a Francis Ernest Edwards both residing in the same house.But,I'm still not sure and as always I just keep on checking and double checking.
Also on the copy of my Grandmother's wedding certificate it states that my g/grandfather was a Lorry driver.
I would like to point out that as I do shift work there will be times when,I might not get straight back to you.

Thank you for taking the time to read this post.

You received a lot of information about Alice Amelia Edwards (Edmonds?) in this thread on Rootschat.

Perhaps you could let is know where you got with all of this before we go further? ... =767377.72

I did also have a look, but there was so much confusion between what I was finding, the information given and the ancestry tree.

It would appear that this is the third time the poster has posted a query about this across several different boards??
