I found your web site when researching my family tree, and have found it interesting. I wonder if you know of anyone who could help me with my research.

I'm looking at my late father's branch. His father was Frank Addy, who I have just found out was born in Cridling Stubbs on 14 December 1914, and whose father was Lawrence Addy, who was born in Knottingly on 29/5/1880. He died in 1936 in Knottingley.  Lawrence was a signalman and married Ada Hodgeson from Wetherby. T hey had four other children besides Frank: Leonard, Edith, Lillian and Florence.

I've seen a Richard Addy on your history page who was around in 1936. I don't know if he is any relation of this family.

I'd be very grateful if you could post a request for information on your site, and for any information you could offer.

(My surname is not Addy, as my dad's mother changed her and my dad's surname when she divorced Frank Addy.)
