    Notes 
    • WILLIAM GEORGE RIDSDALE

      Will (or "Wil") Ridsdale was born at 5 William St. in New Skelton in September 1882.  (Birth registered at Marske, Guisborough)  He was the first son of John Robert Ridsdale and Zilpha Ann Lake.

      I have no record of his baptism.

      He worked for the Post Office for his working career and was working as a Postman in Saltburn when he married Mary Bolton in 1919.  At the time he was boarding at 15 Zetland Terrace in Saltburn-by-the-Sea.

      Will and Minnie were married on 10 September 1919 at All Saints Parish Church in Skelton.

      In 1921 they moved to Suffolk St. in Stockton-on-Tees in Co. Durham. Their only child, Richard Oswald Ridsdale, was born at that house in August of 1921.

      They bought the house at 31 Gray's Rd. in Stockton in 1923 for £520.

      When Will retired, he was working as a Postal Inspector.

      Will died in July 1947 at his house on Gray's Rd.  (Death is registered in Newcastle.)

      I do not know where he is buried.
