Frederick William Taylor Nottingham/Edward James Taylor

Hello,
I am looking for ANY information on Frederick William Taylor known as Fred. Born circa 1922/23 I believe in Nottingham but possibly may have been elsewhere. His father's name is given as Edward James Taylor on the marriage certifiacte of his first marriage which was to Dora Bowring and which ended in early divorce. He is beleived to have remarried later on and to possibly have had more children. His descendents may or may not know about his first marriage. He was a Bricklayer at the time of his marriage in 1943 and lived in Carlton in Nottingham. He served in the Black Watch in WW2. There may or may not be a scottish connection..possibly with Edinburgh. Any information to enable me to trace this line of my family history would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Angiy

Hi , Well it's several years on and no reply. I am still trying to trace this line. I have the following further info Fred was born 25th April 1922 In Carlton Nottingham, married to Dora Bowring and divorced by 1948 when he remarried to one Mildred Stiff. They later divorced. He may have married again or not. He lived variously in the home counties and London and later ended up back in Nottingham where he passed away in 2011. There is approx 40 years of which we know nothing ..so he may have other children out there. His father was Edward James Taylor born 1884 approx and born in Nottingham accordin got the 1911 census. His mother was Ellen/Ellen Ann or Helena Cheetham believed to be the daughter of Harriet Cheetham , father unknown but step father was Henry Balchin Hosiery Maker. Any info at ll would be brilliant. It is known that Fred had several siblings ..so there must be someone out there with some info ! :-)

Are you still researching this Taylor line? My son in law is the grandson of Frederick's elder sister Eva Muriel Taylor. Their father, as you say, was Edward James Taylor b 1884, an only child, and his father was Edward Taylor born 1862, whose birth certificate I'm awaiting. Edward and his wife Margaret Flannery married in Nottingham on 10 Oct 1880. I have their marriage cert. Edward names his father as Thomas Taylor, hawker, but I can't find him in a census, and I'm a bit suspicious as Edward's mother's maiden name was also Taylor, which is often a signal for illegitimacy. The family appears to have moved to Philadelphia in 1890 but were back in Nottingham before autumn 1904 when Edward James married.
