William Bywater

I am searching for my family’s history. My great grandfather’s name was William Bywater and he married Lillian Shaw, my great grandmother. I have very little information other than that Lillian was born in 1884, probably in or near Birmingham. William may have been born in or near Birmingham as well. I have no date of birth for my great grandfather.

My grandmother Cecilia Marjorie Bywater was born in Birmingham on September 26, 1914 at home. She had two sisters, Irene Cecilia born in 1911 and Elsie born in 1913.

According to my late grandmother, they were given free passage by the Queen to America when their father died of influenza. William was employed by the Queen when he died. I don’t know what capacity, though.
