Paul, I am the daughter of James Idle born 23 Aug 1931 and Jean Ansbro. My grandparents were Thomas Idle who died in 1943 and Anne (Sharpe I believe). Thomas had Thomas, Florence, Jessie, James, Anne, Micheal and Josie. Thomas Jnr was killed in Sardinia in 1943 aged 18. I presume Thomas Snr was born at the turn of the century. My Aunt Anne has done some research into this but I am unable to contact her. I know that the actor Eric Idle was in contact with my father at one point when he was researching his family. Any help or pointers you can give would be wonderful.
