Yes his grave is here in Africa,  I was hoping to find relatives in England. My grandmother was his daughter, she died last year aged 95 wanting to know her father's people, I am just honouring her wishes
Hi Hosa I think I'm part of the family you are looking for. My late Father was Desmond Francis born 18/06/24 in Redruth Cornwall. He had 3 Brothers William, Benjamin,Donald and one Sister called Verona. My Father Desmond died in Guernsey in the Channel Islands on 6/03/06. We know William John Francis my Grandfather went to Africa before Desmond was born and we no the ships name and date he left Southampton for Africa on. We have always wondered what happened to William and have spent many years looking for information. I only came across your post last night after typing in Williams first wife Grace Charleston my Grandmother. Hope to hear from you soon thanks Georgina Prior nee Francis
