Hello
I am trying to trace the Ramsden family
from Wakefield/Yorkshire.
My grandfathers name was John ramsden he was born June 7th 1913 Wakefield Yorkshire England. His Fathers name was Albert, Mothers name was Alice Maud.(NEE. SMITH).
He had one brother two sisters one sister being Margaret (also known as Maggie). The other sisters name we are not sure of. One of his sisters married a Doctor and one I believe died at a young age. And I believe his brothers name was Jack. My grandfather also was known as Chum. He came to Queensland
Australia around 1921-1926. Approx at the age of around nine years.
Albert Ramsden worked as a Lamp Lighter. (Council Worker). I have an address of 24 Mollacres Yard Kirkgate. Wakefield. Yorkshire.
If anyone should have some History I could follow up on I would greatly appreciate anything, as I am just starting off and any imformation would be welcoming.
Regard Desley
