Hello fellow researchers, I haven't got very far with my g/grandfather Alfred James as it has taken an age looking for his birth.On his marriage certificate his name was given as Alfred James ADSHEAD and his father as William (a builder) In 1891 he gave his birth place as Woodley,Cheshire. The only Woodley birth I have found is for a James Alfred ADSHEAD whose parents were William (a bricklayer) and Martha nee Poole residing at Woodley,Bredbury,Cheshire in August 1862.This fits the bill alright. On the 1881 census I can't find William or Alfred/James.Any suggestions how to confirm this birth in August. Any help appreciated. Annette.
