Frost family 1
Kindly supplied by Lionel Frost

William Frost was born within the township of Ilkeston, Derbyshire.
Unfortunately, both on a personal knowledge level or family ‘hand me down’ information; little is known of either William or Rachel, little known that is except for what can be gleaned from the census returns, for we are fortunate enough that William appears on the census (years dated 1841 to 1901), so in that respect we are at least able to paint an all to brief history of how his life was lived, though it does lack that sense of intimacy that family hand me down information can bring.

Let us examine what the censuses show us.
