Hi Su, Do you know where and when your grandfather and his siblings were born?
There are still very few Cartledges living in the Manchester area. The possiblity is that if we go far enough back we will probably come from the same family. I have gone back along my branch as far as my great great grandparents wedding in 1857 at Manchester Cathedral. I believe that my great great grandfather was born in 1837 and my great great grandmother was born in 1838 but as yet I haven't confirmed these.
