I wonder if anyone can help as I am drawing a blank each time. I have my maternal great grandfather's name dob, dod, dom, his spouses details and their children. I have been told by the family he was in WW1 and it his occupation is recorded on his marriage cert as soldier.
I also have his father's name and the family have told me of siblings names and genders.
I cannot link him however to anything and my last resort was to try and link somehow to his military records. I don't have his soldier number and there is a family rumour that he deserted but that hasn't been confirmed.
I a now stuck. Can someone advise where to look next? I have looked at parish records, databases, census etc. Am I missing something?
