    Is there any way round this ......

    without buying a marriage cert please.

    I have found a death for an uncle by marriage but I can't find a birth. I'm wondering if he was born abroad. The death reference in April-June 1975 gives his name as James Philip Kingsley born 5/9/1904. I have also found him as J P Kingsley going on an assisted passage to Australia aged 24 on 13th September 1929 (he came back again shortly afterwards). However, the marriage reference says James E Kingsley.

    I can't find a birth for him or a likely one on 1911 (though I haven't got credits to be sure. As it's only by marriage I don't really want to spend money but I am really nosy :Big Grin:

    p.s. He was a director of the GUS group for many years including I'm sure 1953/54 but googling didn't produce anything.

    p.p.s. I know that his parents were publicans in 1925/26

    Just had a thought - is there any way of finding out the licensees of a pub in 1925/26?

                  LOL Val and Maggie :smilee: - no they were different ones.
                  I'm really confused now. Val's father is a licensed victualler but I can't find any marriage or any of the birth references for them. Maggie's has the right initial James P Kingsley but the father is a butcher and (from his death cert) it would mean that he celebrated a slightly wrong birthday all his life.

                  I think I may have to send the marriage cert to my aunt where the transcription says James E Kingsley. Though I'm not sure it's going to help much as there are still no birth regs to fit him :Big Grin:

                  Me and my nosey nose :Big Grin:
