Frank Windle

Post by Robindad » 04 Dec 2017, 12:02

My father's diary for 1930 has the address of Frank Windle at 8 Rook Street Barnoldswick.
Can anyone help sort out whether he was the one born in 1902 or 1904

I've had a look at the 1930 electoral register for 8 Rook Street and Frank is there with Esau and Emily who are probably his parents. I hope that helps. I'll see if I can find them in 1911.

Frank son of Esau & Emily was 9 in 1911, looks like he was born 1902.

Thanks... dad mentions meeting up with him at camps of The Northern Cavern and Fell Club

I knew his name from ‘tales told’ but had no idea he was from Barnoldswick.

Do remember that Muriel Pollard told me of some connection in the King family with caving. Now seems possible she was referring to my own father!

I have searched for Frank Windle in the 1939 Register with no luck so far .. will try again

Still not found Frank Windle in the 1939 Register..

Dad’s diary for 1939 gives his address as S B Res,R N Auxilary Hospital,Barrow Gurney , Bristol.

Is there any record of him returning to Barnoldswick after the war?

No one in the armed forces was listed in the 1939 Register, so if he had already signed up you won't find him.

Thanks Wendy ..I had suspected this and the insight from Dad's diary seems to confirm this -although no rank or Service number is noted ..he did add these for other old pals.

There is a family tree on Ancestry which has Frank Windle marrying Margaret Ackland in 1945 and dying in 1983 in Barrow in Furness. There is a photo of Frank so, though I normally take Ancestry Family Trees with a pinch of salt , this one might be right.
