Looking for my Grandmother Ellen Agnes Smith born 23 Feb 1895 Lewisham, London

Ellen married my grandfather Henry Joseph Lambert in Nov 1919 Islington, London, UK.

Her father is listed in the marriages as James Smith, drayman, deceased.

My father Henry William Ernest Lambert, I believe was their only child.

My sister and I are the only children of our father, and probably the only grandchildren of Ellen. Unfortunately we left the UK as young children and had no contact with our father who died 22 April 1972. My grandmother passed away in 1976.

This is my second attempt on Family Tree Circles (Ellen Agnes Smith)to see if I can get any information on Ellen's siblings and parents. I would like to make contact with my Smith and Lambert relations.

Please help me find my grandmother's family. Thank you.
