Still searching Edwards

I've been searching for my father-in-law heritage for some years, but no results. May bee someone here might be able to help me? 

His names was David Thomas Edwards, borned june 3 1942 in Liverpool, father James Edwards borned 1914, mother Gladys b Smith 1916. He also had an younger brother, Jim. 

The family lived in Bootle. 

David Thomas died in Norway in nov. 2011.

Details of the marriage James Edwards/Gladys Smith are not online, you will need to purchase the certificate from the GRO. It should give you James father, occupation and addresses, etc.

Hi and welcome to the forum.  If you don't already have the marriage certificate for James and Gladys you can order it online at www.gro.gov.uk using these references - you will need to create a free account to use this service.

June Quarter 1935

James Edwards and Gladys Smith

Liverpool North District Vol 8b Page 994

This will give you the addresses they lived, ages and occupations, father's names and occupations and witnesses, who might also be relatives.  Unfortunately it doesn't appear to be available online.

If you use this site https://www.freebmd.org.uk/ which is a free one and enter the surnames and check "births" you will see a number of births matching those names in between the marriage (1935) and the date of David's birth 1942, which is noted in the district of Bootle, others are registered under the Liverpool North which would be correct for Bootle before it became a district in its own right.

There is a Gladys Edwards living at 4a Hawthorne Road, Bootle, birthdate 16 December 1916 in the 1939 Register, there is an officially closed entry, which means that the child would have been born before 1939 but hasn't been identified as being deceased so they are not allowed to show the details.  Although she is married there is no husband at home, could mean that he has already signed up for the military.

As I said above, you would need the marriage certificate to confirm the fathers, in order to take this further.

I've found the marriage of James Alxander Green and Elisabeth Black ( the other grandparents ) from 1914. :-)  I'll try to get the ove from James Edwards and Gladys too :-) 

I'm not used with the english sertificates, so if you can tell me what the different ifo is I would be very happy :-)

You appear to have ordered this Certificate from the General Register Office back in 2012, unfortunately as I wasn't able to find the marriage for your other grandparents online, it would seem that you will have to purchase their certificate in the same way from www.gro.gov.uk, using the details I gave above
