I have no access nor any knowledge as to how to find documents in England. I have asked around and everyone suggested Family Search, but I have never done it myself so can not be of much help I only have experience of South African sources. So sorry, but do try Family Search, and lets be hopeful :-D
Have a nice day Ronel ps: It might be a good thing to ask in G2G, there are people with far greater experience ready to help.

I understand you want to merge the two below free space pages into one. I tried to do it for you but since I am not a manager of the two pages cannot do it.
I suggest you send the two profile pages URL web address along with a message requesting a WikiTree Leader to merge them for you if you're not able to merge the pages. Send the request to firstname.lastname@example.org
