Hello
I am trying to find information about my Grandfather Wilfred Barnard, born approx 1898.
He was a street musician and shows an address of 160 Vauxhall Road Duddeson in 1935.
In that year his wife, Louisa nee Collins died and their three daughters were taken to the Convent.
They never saw their father again.
I have traced Louisa Barnard to a paupers grave.
I have spent years on this and now, sadly my Mother has passed. It was a triumph to find and place flowers on her mothers grave but I would still love to trace Wilfred. I have a picture if that assists.

very sad story geoffh obviously wilfred just could not cope after his wifes death...just looked at the 1935 e rolls and it looks like wilfred was sharing a property with 7 other people...no sign of wife louisa so am i correct in assuming that she died  before the e roll register was taken??


could i ask how you know that he was a street musician..? i am just wondering if he left the country because at the min i cant find him after 1935 i have even checked the eve of war 1939 register but nothing matches up at the min...oh yes please a photo would be lovely

Hi astoness
this is a picture of my Grandad. Mum and here sisters were sent to Nazareth House and had a torrid time.
Mum remembers her father painting his plimsoles white before heading out to play.
Thank you for your interest.

her death was April 1935 at 77 Dudley Road (Hospital- formerly workhouse). She died shortly after child birth.
The baby came home but died within a couple of months, certainly before the girls went to Naz House.

Im not sure in what month the e-roll was conducted.

Geoff, there is a family tree on Ancestry
Wilfred Barnard b Derbyshire  May 1898 died 1974 derbyshire
It has Ellen Louisa Collins b 4th feb 1906 Wolverhampton
I have only found a lottie in 1911 with parents Henry and Rosannah in wolverhapton


I can find no marriage of Wilfred and Ellen louisa but they obviously moved around a lot.
They had a daughter Ellen Rosina registered as Collins in 1924 Manchester
Joyce 1929 in stoke on Trent
Dorothy Freda in 1931 Norwich
Ronald Seymore in 1935 Birmingham

The only problem with the info is that the Wilfred b May 1898 is  in 1939 with a wife Mabel who he married in 1919
and daughter Marjorie b 1922. and rather than being a musician he works in a coal mine.
and the only other Wilfred Barnard born 1897-1898 died in 1986 Spalding where he was born and married  Rose in 1922.
