    I am trying to trace my great grandfather who was in Barrow in Furness, Lancashire/Cumbria border, in 1905/6. My mixed race grandmother, Elsie Akred, was born in 1906 but her father is written as unknown on her birth certificate. It is thought that my great grandfather did settle in the area and married another woman so there may be some records of him in the area and and possibly had another daughter not so different in age.
    Can you suggest any contacts or leads I might follow to trace my great garndfather?
    Thank you for your time,
    Very best regards,
    Joan Ashworth.
