thank you for your reply. I have found no birth/baptism records for my grandfather David Stanley Grady born 31.08.1900. I have exhausted ancestry in uk. I know he had relatives in Ireland possibly Co Clare. Although my brother went there and could find nothing. Am beginning to think he was adopted. Very frustrating to find very little info. Have info about him (medal rolls/marriage cert/death cert) but don,t know where he came from.
