There are several Sydney H Moores on familysearch, born in Denmark, New Zealand, England, US etc.  Maybe you will recognize one of these names and then use the free seach tool to find more related records.


If the one below looks correct, you might try to get the actual birth record to see if more information is there.

Whilst there is a marriage between a Kate Ethel Maude Hale to Walter Moore is listed in Camberwell in 1905, it is not possible to be finite that it is Sydney's parents. The fact that Walter & Kate were living in Carshalton, Surrey in 1911, does not offer comfort.

This is the marriage:Name:

Kate Ethel Maude Hale

Estimated Birth Year: abt 1884

Age: 21
Spouse: Walter Moore
Spouse Age: 22
Record Type: Marriage
Event Date: 25 Dec 1905
Parish: All Saints, North Peckham
Borough: Southwark
Father Name: Thomas Henry Hale
Spouse Father: Edwin William Moore
Register Type: Parish Register

The 1917  birth certificate referred to in the above answer, is the only sure way to confirm parentage.

Thanks for the info.
