Hi everyone,
This is my first post and I really need help finding my Merchant
Seaman/Fireman Great Granddad.
John Benjamin Samuel Williams
born 31st March 1900 (give or take 1 yr either way)
His Heritage is Freetown, Sierra Leone
he had a child (my nanna) in manchester in aug 1933
married my great grandma (who was white and of irish heritage) in sep 1933
and died in Manchester Royal Infirmary Hospital in 1954
He is possibly linked to 2 Upper Stanhope St, Toxteth, Liverpool which im starting to think is where his dad may of been, his dad might be called Thomas/Thos Williams.
He had 4 children to my great grandma in, 1933, 1936, 1939 and 1953 all in Manchester.

Hello Jo, I'm in the middle of several trees at present but had a quick look, all I could see was this from FMP: If you could send me your gt,grandmothers full name or your grandma's by pm [private message] that would be a huge help in establishing if and where I find him in other certs that I have the correct John. The list below has a score through it and I'm reliably informed that means either the crew/passengers or ship did not travel.
