Neil was born in 1970 in Scarborough in Yorkshire[1]. He was told that he was born in Yorkshire, so that he could play for Yorkshire Cricket Club when he was older. Those were the days when you had to have been born in the county to play cricket for the county (although to this day, he has never shown aptitude or interest in cricket!). The reality was that his parents, Bill and Celia had stopped in Scarborough for the Winter, after following Bill round the country for his job, as he inspected the quality welding of the national trunk gas mains being installed at this time. This meant the family travelling in a caravan for a few years, inspecting all over the UK.

In 1974, Neil's younger brother Ian arrived, so Bill and Celia put down roots in Eaglescliffe, near Stockton-upon-Tees. Bill at this time was working in Oil and Gas industry, spending time working in the North Sea Oil fields, again as an inspector of newly commissioned oil and gas platforms.

When Neil was around eight, the family moved to Sunderland, nearer to Bill's family.

Heya, Neil, I've been wondering how to get information regards my 2Xgr-grandfather and his wife who were from County Durham and North Shields respectively. I keep hitting paywalls and wonder if you have any advice regards free searches that also offer free views, because I don't want to be buying information that is useless to me.
