    Family Search
    Although a world wide sub is great to have sometimes information is completely free if you troll other places. Family Search is often overlooked.

    Thank you for that. I'm ashamed to say I forgot all about Family Search. I don't find it particularly easy to use, to be honest. I've just tried inputting info from your post and William didn't crop up! I'll practise.

    Yes he did. This death is correct place and age. I'll do a bit more digging

    No luck with passport photos unfortunately but was able to print the USA census etc at the library. Haven't been able to confirm if Frank came back and died here but one of the sisters is here in UK in 1939.
