I am trying to find the family tree of Sir John Moores, founder of littlewoods for an assignment please help.?

I have tried searching for the family tree of Sir John Moores the founder of the littlewoods group. I know his dad was called John and his mother Louisa and he was the eldest of eight but I want to try and put together the rest. All the searches I have tried have been of no use and I am now at a loss as to where to get this information.
