Thomas Grimstone Deards, b.1900 LondonUK

Hi! I'm new to all this but I'd love to hear from anyone with info on my branch of the family:

Thomas Grimstone Deards (my father)
b 10th May 1900, London UK, d 1982.
His brothers:
William (or Bill), Jack (also known as John and Tim), Walter, Charlie (Charles).

The boys were born in the East End of London, and I think lived in Nunhead from the 1900's to about 1960. Most then moved to Surrey, including my dad, who owned a chain of hardware shops in Surrey, Sussex and London. In fact the one in the Old Kent Road in London I believe still bears his name: "T Deards" above the door!

Thomas's dad was called John and worked for a brewery, possibly Charringtons, all his life. Tom's mum was Sarah.

I'd be grateful for any info, or tips on how I can start researching!

Many thanks
Janet Thorpe (nee Deards)
Crawley, W. Sussex, UK
