Can anyone please give me anymore information on the Darby family. I am looking for a Harold Darby He lived at 1Dudley Port Tipton. His father's name was Thomas Darby I do not know his mother's name. I wish I did. Harold was living there in the year of 1932. Harold Darby married my dear mother on the 23th of April 1932, my mother's name was Lily May Bowen before she became Mrs Darby. My mother lived at 10 New Area Chapel Street Tividale Rowley Regis. My mother's father and mother was called Joseph Bowen and Martha Bowen. Harold Darby was 25 years old and my mother was 17 years old when married. Harold had died about 4 or 5 years later. My dear mother was on her own with 4 children. My mother had lost 2 of her young ones six months after Harold had died. Both were girls one was around 3 or 4 and the other one was about 6 months old. The older child was called Betty Darby and her brother is called Harold after his father. I do not know if Harold is buried at any of the old churches around there. I am always checking new leads. Please if anyway can help find Harold Darby and his family that would be great any information would be lovely. If anyone out there who may know my mother Lily May please get in touch we me. Thank you all for adding to the website it's great to read about people lives that have gone by, but never fair away from us.
