Hi
I am trying to find the above relative. He was married to Ada Mills, they had two children Thomas William Broom KIA WW1 in Hong Kong. Edith Clara Broome married to William Johnson. He was born in East Ham.

I would love to be able to take my search further back than 1873/4 which was his approximate birth date.

Thank you in advance for any help you may be able to give me.

His marriage cert will name his father

OR….cost-free way to find out is to look for his birth registration of the GRO website, where MMN is recorded…….

He was born in 1873……..
