The information I am looking for would be for his/her parents, what they did for a living or anything interesting. I know who their children where, as well as their grandchildren. All I really have is names, some birth/death dates and the general area they lived.

Thanks again for any/all help, have a great day
Gwen

Hi,
Birth reg.

George Alfred Rockey

Yeovil 5c 428 Sep.Qtr 1889

Obtaining the above from the GRO would give you the mothers maiden name as there does not appear to be a marriage for the parents in Englabd abd Wales.

Regards
