I am searching for some trace of William Briggs born in Newcastle under Lyme Staffordshire 1906
Son of Frederick Briggs and Florence nee Norris
After the death of their father in 1911 my grandmother could not afford to keep her three young sons
My father Albert was sent to live with an aunt in Ireland and she kept the youngest child. Where William went to remains a mystery.
The family moved to Manchester to be near my grandmothers family (Norris) and lived in the Greenheys/ Hulme area
I understand that William was in the R.A.M.C Voluntary Service about 1936 Their HQ were on Kings Road Old Trafford.
It is believed that William later emigrated to either Australia or New Zealand some time after 1936.
If anyone knows of any connection please let me know.
I have been searching for many years.
