Looking for HOLDEN of Godalming, Surrey
Bernard Tomlin Holden, b. 7 May, 1889 in Godalming, Surrey, England; died 1 July, 1981 in Worthing, Sussex, England. He married Helen Heap c. 1917 or earlier, and my father, Bernard Roger Holden, was born in Leicester on 8 January, 1919. They emigrated to Canada c. 1922.
His brother, Charles Francis Holden, was born c. 1991 and died as a soldier in France on 10 October, 1915. The information on the Godalming War Memorial website names his parents as Francis Holden and Julia Maria Holden of 26, Milton Rd., Bournemouth. I have been unable to find traces of a Francis Holden in Bournemouth, but I see that there was a bootmaker in Godalming named Francis Holden, and a Major of Godalming of that name in 1903.
I am looking for more information on any of these people, including the parentage and origins of Helen Heap, and the maiden name of Julia Maria Holden.
