Hi Everyone,

Not sure if anyone can give me some pointers as I am stuck in my search for my Great Uncle Edwin Waldron. He was born in Swindon, England, on 9th June 1911 and was looked after by the Waifs & Strays Society and I have details of his life in England prior to emigrating to Canada on 14th April 1927.

I have managed to find a grave for him at St John Cemetery, Richmond County showing that he died in 1997 and was buried with his wife Alice Y. Pocklington (possibly first name Marice b.1917? d. 1989) and their infant son Freddie (only date is 17th April 1941).

I cannot fins any other records for marriage, death or any other children they may have had (I cannot even find a record for Freddie).

I am having real trouble searching for records in Canada and am coming up with nothing. I have only just found out that he existed as my Great Gran never spoke of him or his older sister Elizabeth Large (also given up for adoption, moved to Canada, but returned to England so I have found lots of records for her).

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I would like to try to make contact with any living family if there are any.

Many thanks
