FURTHER QUESTIONS ON THE FORE-FATHERS OF WALTER SIDNEY RICHARDS, Born 1900 Isle of Wight, ENGLAND
Thanks very much for that information.
On Walter Sidney RICHARDS' (my Great-Grandfather) birth certificate it listed his father, Alfred George, as a gardener; from what I can piece together, but are unsure, it seems that at some stage an Alfred G RICHARDS worked as a gardener at a cottage in Nitton. See link below, down the page about halfway.
Going from this information the Alfred father here had a son Walter (16 - carriage driver) which makes me wonder whether this was Walter Sidney RICHARDS and the family had moved there after living in Isle of Wight or whether this Walter is an uncle to the Walter Sidney (that is my Great-Grandfather), and the father Alfred is in fact Walter Sidney's Grandfather (my Great-Great-Great-Grandfather?
The Walter Sidney RICHARDS, that is my Great-Grandfather birth certificate states the following information:
