For Betty Baker, writing on 09 Feb 2009.
The 1911 Census (details available at findmypast.co.uk) records an Alfred James Tyler Reed living or staying at the Porter's Lodge, Lowesby (Station, presumably) on April 2nd that year.
He was then 9 years old, and was recorded as having been born in Twyford. He was living or staying with his uncle, Willie Fardell Reed, and Willie's wife and four children. This looks to be your Alfred Reed.
The free BMD website records that Alfred married Mabel Goodman in the Billesdon Registration district in the quarter ending Sept. 1925.

I am the great grandaughter of Daniel and Margaret Coleman (photos of gravestone shown on your site).
I remember visitng them at what I believe was called Blacksmith Cottage, their home in the village and also that Daniel was a keen follower of the local hunt.
Some fabulous information and overall a great site well done.

This is to whoever runs the site.
I have been reading the feedback and was very interested to see a note from Dawn Watson 12th Oct 2007 regarding the Springthorpes. As I am originally from Billesdon and my ancesters from Tilton (there are 11 buried in the church yard) I would very much like to contact her. I have a tremendous amount of information and pics from the area and I am building my own website as such. If you could kindly put me in touch with her or let her know I am also researching the Tilton Springthorpes I will be extremely grateful.
Thank you very much indeed.

Yes Barbara is Bill Catling's widow. - at present she is living in Leicester --- have not seen her for a very long time. Unfortunately I do not recognise your fathers name. Bill had one brother Harold and three sisters Mary who died in Oct 2005 --Betty and Lucy.
