My grandmother, May Thackrah was born in Sheffield on May 11 1891. She was a daughter of Herbert Joseph Thackrah and his wife Frances (Slack). Her siblings were Herbert, Frances Mary, William Henry, Winifred, and Charles Ernest.
Herbert Joseph was the son of Henry Thackrah and his wife Sarah (Roe), and was born in Sheffield 14 January 1860. His siblings were Emma Roe, Henry, Clara, Alice, and Elizabeth.
Henry lived in Sheffield, and was the son of John Thackrah, a cordwainer, born in Leeds, and his wife Elizabeth (Powell). Henry's siblings were George, James, Samuell, and Clara.
If anyone knows anything about this family I would be very happy to hear from you.
