My greatgrandfather was Richard Edward Blackmore born West Ham London in I believe the June qtr of 1888. At the age of about 11 he was orphaned. His father was William Blackmore but I do not know his mother’s name.
It is also believed that Richard had a sister (we think older) and when he was made an orphan his sister went to live with an auntie. This sister may have married a doctor.
On 3-4-1912 in Paddington, Richard married Georgina Miles and had 8 children of which my grandfather Horace Ronald was the second. On the 15-11-1940 a bomb landed on the house killing Richard, Georgina and 2 of the children along with any birth certificates etc.
I am looking for any information that many help.
There does exist a few deaths of a few Blackmores in West Ham at the end of the century: Alice Blackmore age 41 died W.Ham in March qtr 1900 William Henry Blackmore died age 56 W.Ham March qtr 1897 Alice Ellen Blackmore died age 53 W.Ham June qtr 1897
Even if the above 3 are your relatives and not mine can you please let me know
