Young Walter's uncle William Bennett known as Mickey scored for Sheffield Wednesday in the 1890 Fa cup final

Re: Walter Bennett 1902 to 1986 Footballer

Hi Barry
Thanks for the reply. As far as I can tell this baptism isn't our Walter. Its possible its his cousin from uncle Walter who played for Sheffield Wednesday.
We have our Walters parents as Henry and Mary and a dob of the 27 Feb 1902.

kind regards
