I have my grandmothers birth cert (1916) giving her fathers name as Daniel Makin - Railway labourer.
I also have her marriage certificate naming her father as William Henry Makin -master tailor. I have her mother's marriage certificate -spouse- Frederick Makin - carter.
I then have my GG grandmothers death cert saying widow - William Makin - News vendor and a death cert for
William Henry Gavin at the same address as Great great grandmother!
My gran says her dads name was Daniel Gavin and he was a tailor! I am completely stuck as I can't go back further with the name muddle.
