    Default Can I still find his record

    My father (born 1903)told me he started work as a cleaner at Salisbury.
    He later transferred to Faversham as (cleaner passed fireman). This
    would have been abou 1930-32 and the company was either Southern
    Railway or South Eastern & Chatham. He was born in Wilton and had
    at least one uncle employed by the railway and his grandfather who
    was from North Bradley and listed as a railway packer in the 1851
    census. My father died in 1959 so I can't ask him. Can anyone else offer
    (polite) suggestions as to where I might look for hard facts about his
    (and my other relatives) railway careers

    Have you read this Research Guide?

    The dates mentioned strike me as a bit recent but perhaps you'll strike lucky.

    The National Archives website is a good first port of call for many questions and easy to use, for example -
