I decided to try and find the family of Ronald Stanley Bird, whose Death Plaque is up for sale in a facebook group in Scotland.

 

Ronald was born in Witham, Essex in 1894.  He was killed in Palistine on 18 Dec 1917.  His parents were John Edwin or John Edward Bird and Elizabeth Hollowbread.  Ronald had a brother Frederick Bird, who was born 7 Apr 1898 in Loughton, Essex.  Frederick married Alice Pegrum in 1926.  They had one child Ronald Frederick Bird, born 28 Nov 1931 and died 27 Feb 1984, in Loughton Essex.  There are a few possible marriages for Ronald junior but I can't prove any of them, so can't find any living relatives.  

 

Any ideas, please?

 

Lynne

I hate assumptions....but if he married it was probably to a local girl People tended to stay in their own area?
