New Year’s Day email

I received an email on New Year’s day from Celia Stanley, grand daughter of Alfred George Wakefield, who was interested in any info we had as she had never met him.

The only ‘Alfred George Wakefield’ we had listed was obviously not Celia’s grandfather but after an exchange of emails it was soon clear he was the ‘George Wakefield born c.1896’ for whom we had no other data. He was the son of Frederick Wakefield & Jane Allcroft from Hackney, London.

Celia provided some more background and it appeared her grandfather married Phoebe Crampton and they lived in Islington, London. Their only child, a daughter  born c.1928, was Celia’s mother.

Thank you to Celia (my 3x cousin) for increasing our knowledge of the Wakefield family.
