Could anyone please find on the 1939 register

Louisa Ann Wynn born 1888 in Woolwich. Everyone was born in Woolwich

These are her children but it is likely the first 2 are off married

Margery born 1914
Marie born 1916
Henry born 1921
.... born 1923
Ethel born 1925

I have really searched and are on the verge of letting this one go for now
Thank you for reading this
Ann

Name removed as possibly living person.

I've had a quick look but haven't found either Louisa or Ethel. Sorry but ran out of time.

Hi, I've had a look and I've found a Louisa A Lynn in Woolwich born in 1888, there's an Ethel living with her as well as 2 other people. As I am unsure if Ethel is still alive or not I daren't put her married name up on the website.

It's always worth thinking of similar Surnames as my own Grandfather is noted down as Philip and not Phillips.

I have looked and that is definitely her. Can you remind me why 2 lines are blacked out as my mum was the youngast so there should be no other children

To be honest I'm wondering the same, my Granddad is blacked out and he was born in 1921 and died in 1996.

Theoretically because (a) they're not yet 100+years of age or (b) the authorities haven't got the info that they've died.

The household consists of

Louisa

blank
Ethel
David Waller - husband of Marie?
Marie Waller

So the two blanked out would seem to be Henry and .... (Name removed as possibly still living.

The 1939 Register was only updated regularly by the NHS until ca 1991.

Any deaths or name changes after that date will not have been noted.

FMP and Ancestry are trying to update using GRO and other records, but also depend on users to supply information on death dates. It can be even more difficult because of the large numbers of people who have emigrated in the last 50 years or so.

At one point I had an aunt and uncle born in the 1890s and 6 children all blacked out ......... all but one child had emigrated to Australia in the 1950s & 1960s. I found them because I knew their address.

Aunt and uncle are now showing, I'm presuming either because it was noticed that they had to be dead or because one of the children/grandchildren had sent in the information. But the 6 children are still hidden even though only 2 of them are still alive.

It is very hit and miss as far as I can tell. My aunt that died 3 years ago, is now available to view, so it is updated. My Mil and another aunt that are alive are there to see also.

I think it is hard to redact using an event that actually hasn't happened.

I think it is going to be very hard for ancestry or FMP to work out what has happened to women, who might have married at least once if not more times since the NHS stopped updating women's changes of name as well as death.

lots of info on NA site about the register.

http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/help-with-your-research/research-guides/1939-register/

See section 10, if you have death cert you can ask for redaction to be removed via FMP.

I agree.

My 82yo cousin, who is still very much alive, is visible on the 1939 Register, but her mother wasn't, apparently because her year of birth was indistinct. I did an on-line chat with FMP and after a bit of too-ing and fro-ing, they agreed to open the mother's record without me having to produce a death certificate.

Same thing with Daddy. He was born 1925 but died in 1980. I needed to send them a copy of his death cert to open his record as he died in Scotland.
