Default Hannah Grieves - Togston

I am researching my grandfather George(Robert) Grieves who died 03 01 1921.
I knew very little so started with his Canadian War Medals and 1 picture of him in army uniform. I found his army history on line. I then discovered that he became a home child and was sent to Canada at the age of 15. His death card says his mother was Hannah and his father George of Broomhill. Information just received after a 6 month wait tells me that Hannah is 100% my great grandmother. George obviously has to be the child mentioned in the newspaper report.His birth date seems to be under question and even the army record contains 2 different dates.I cannot find a birth cert which matches either 100%. I don't know what number Togston Terrace they lived at nor whether Hannah and George were married. So Hannah died in 1899 and I now know that George died in c 1902. If anyone has any scrap of information it would be much appreciated or can tell me who to contact that would be great.
