I think this is also a crafted plate of an English soldier.
Someone helps me find relatives ????

Hi

He was Bertie Alfred Radford, attested with the Royal Artillery in 1938. Service number 1437811.
Possible birth 1907, married twice - 1929 and 1940? and death 1972 in Hendon Middlesex.

Fantastic!!!!
Thanks Simmo.
Do you have any tips for finding a wife or children?
We want to return this plate to the family free of charge.

HI

Check on Ancestry for a family tree, that is probably the easiest way to contact a relation.
Not something I am interested in doing.

Hi G R S
Thanks to Robert identifying this man I can only see one tree on ancestry and it only has one spouse for him and no children. I will take a look around and see if there is anything else to be found.

If the second marriage in 1940 found by Robert and verified by me is the correct man then it looks as if there were 3 children born to this marriage.
His second wife was Norah Marloes who was born in 1910 so I think we can safely use her name but not those of the children.
If you use FreeBMD - births - surname Radford - mother's maiden name Marloes you will get three birth registrations.
Three sons, 1941, 1945 registration district Hendon and another son 1949 Willesdon.

The second son born 1945 is possibly on the site 192.com electoral rolls 2002 to 2018.

Thanks Christina,
I had other data in pvt, even the address of one of the three children.
Tonight I will write to him, I hope that by the end of the month this plate returns to the hands of the family !!

P.S. Excuse me if I make mistakes when I write but I use google translate
