Hello Tony welcome to the site. I have moved your post to here as the practice thread you originally posted in is auto wiped after 7 days. We have quite a few genealogists on the site who may be able to help. Do you have any more information, every snippet might be useful.

Welcome to the site Tony. I'm sure you'll get some responses, the genealogists on the site are very able and always willing to help. Mind you, with a name like Smith you are handicapped! Even seemingly unimportant bits of info can cut the possibilities down. I can't find the Smith index from my local history card index on the site so I'm posting it again. There may be a clue in there!

Hello Tony, what sort of information are you looking for?
I've found Frank & Mary Ellen's wedding at Burnley Register Office in the 1st Qtr of 1931, but beyond that it becomes a bit difficult without knowing his age, there were a lot of Frank Smiths baptised in Burnley either side of 1900. I've looked at the 1911 census for Smith families with sons called Frank and Albert and there a few of those. Do you know when he died?
