Notes

0    Text in red represents information obtained from the internet (family trees etc) which I have not yet confirmed.

1    Picture of William Swindle  "Dad in the early Twenties", 1927 Sudbury, Suffolk, posted by neilswi on Ancestry.
The birth of Neil C Swindlles, mother's maiden name Byham, was registered in the second quarter of 1936 in the Sudbury district (FreeBMD 4a 1427).
The marriage of a William A Swindlles and Byham was registered in the fourth quarter of 1928 in the Sudbury district (FreeBMD 4a 2091)
This is the son of a William and Ellen Swindale, born in 1900/1901 in Newcastle. William senior was an itinerant musician in 1901.

2    In the 1939 register in Easington (Shotton Colliery) there is a William Swindle born 11 Dec 1899 ; (married to) Lily D Swindle (née Stephenson from the marriage register). Also Richard Swindle, born 16 June 1929 and one redacted entry.
        Since the only William Swindle born in 1899 Q4 is William's elder brother who died in infancy then the William who married Lily Stephenson is very probably the William born 1900 with the wrong year of birth.

3    This son William, mother's maiden name Stephenson, is given the surname Swindin in the FreeBMD indexes. However there is no Swindin / Stephenson marriage in FreeBMD. In the 1939 register there is a redacted entry above the entry for Richard Swindle, almost certainly an elder brother.
