    Christopher's birth date is off by a couple of weeks.  That's not uncommon.  Perhaps this is Christopher's family?

    Hey There,

    Thanks so very much for this! Yes this definitely is my grand father Christopher Doyle's family. No the real challenge is to see if I have any relatives that are still alive!

    This a brilliant step forward, thanks again Patricia! Much Appreciated! 

    All the very best,

  • Many thanks Patricia, I certainly will keep you in the loop! I have also contacted Kilcullen Town on Facebook so 🤞 they let me join the group! By the way my grandfather Christopher’s date of birth was confirmed as being 29/12/1915 by his military records.

    Thanks a million for all of your help,

    My very best wishes to you and yours.
