Search continues for ‘Bill’ Baker – more information now available


John William Baker – Image supplied by reader.

Ive been trying for a while to get any information on, or contact William John Baker, once resident in Walsall Wood for a while now, and as news information comes to light, I periodically re-run the appeal for the reader trying to locate him – last month they found a picture of Bill, above.

The person looking for the chap often referred to as ‘Bill’ has now obtained a copy of the birth certificate, and although it doesn’t state his date of birth, it does specify the name, which is actually JOHN WILLIAM Baker, not as previously thought, William John.

We’re also now fairly certain John William Baker was living in Vigo Road, Walsall Wood in 1965.

Any further details would be a huge help, please. This is not bad news and there’s absolutely nothing to worry about, but it would be nice if we could get in touch.

I give you my word that I will not share personal details without the permission of those involved. This is one of those enquiries I get from time to time here on the blog, which I’m happy to run, but I can’t actually give information about publicly.

Cheers to those who’ve helped so far. You’re wonderful, thanks.

    I knew of a Bill Baker who lived at 4 Chestnut drive Shelfield. The family moved when Bill was around eleven years of age to where I do not know. Bill had two sisters and his father was a follower of Jehovah witness. Bill would now be sixty four years of age. Maybe somehow this could be a lead. “Just a thought” as Bluebottle would say.
