Son of Massimo Granelli and Emida Ghiloni. They were both born n Italy and in 1901 Massimo is listed as an ice cream vendor.

Antoni and Lily had 3 children (a son & 2 daughters), all of which appear to marry and have children.

It appears that Emida is sometimes listed as Amelia.

With the Granelli family in 1901 is Emida's brother John and their parents seem to be Peter Ghiloni and Gioconda Bernardini.

In 1891 the Ghiloni (listed as Gilonie) family are living George St, Leeds. Emida (listed as Amelia) is listed as being born in Florence. Peter is listed as a figure maker.

In 1901 the Ghiloni family are still in Leeds. Peter is listed as a Plaster Modeller and both Peter and Gioconda's birth place is listed as Lucca.
