Hi Mike
sorry just seen your post!
No never got a reply to this.
Wonder what he was looking for?
He could have had some info for us too!!
Maybe he's descended from the 'Bowler Hatters'!!

Hi Sam,
Its frustrating when they dont bother looking to see if they had any response. Between us we might have saved them years of searching. I could not even access an e-mail address :((

Janes father was named John Grundy not Thomas Grundy. I have not found any other clues relating to him yet...

Hi Samantha, Sorry not to have replied sooner. Your post has just come up - could have been there for a while, not to up on all this. Anyway, My mother was Edith Bowler, born 1911,daughter of James Bowler born ?1884. He had four brothers, Ben, Robert, John and Bertram. James married Elizabeth Robinson (Lizzie) at Holy Trinity Gee Cross. My mother didn't have me until she was 45 and she died in 1997 aged 86 having had dementia for about 5years. Her sister Sarah (Kitty) died a number of years before and so I don't have much information to go on. Do you think we are related? Julia.

james 1884 and my Gt Grandad Ben were brothers NOT your mother as his sister. Sorry if i've confused you it gets so confusing sometimes with all the blooming names and dates!!
