    Does his marriage certificate give a father's name? and occupation?

      I have only found his marriage and death on Ancestry so I suppose I will have to send for the marriage certificate before I can go any further.

        His marriage and death are listed as Henry J Brookes. How about Henry James Brookes - Oct-Dec 1892 - Leicester 7a 249.

          Even if he was born in Leicester in 1892 I have failed to find him in the 1901 census.

            There is also one born in 1892 in Worcestershire but as Christine said, until you get the marriage cert you won't know. You need his parents names.

                    There is a possible BROOKES family in 1901 in Leicester, where the father is called John, and is an elastic weaver, and there's an 8-year-old son called Harry (a diminutive of Henry).

                    I haven't checked to and fro to see if there is any conflicting information for this family.

                    It does tie in with a birth for Henry James BROOKES in Leicester in 1892q4.

                      I have followed the family back a bit, and it certainly seems plausible.

                        To save anyone else looking, this has been followed up on a separate thread.

                          Thank you for the warning Elaine, I was just off to search for them. It would seem that the first possible birth I mentioned in post 4 was probably him then?

                            Yes, Chrissie. Looks likely!

                              I think that is the family as every thing ties in. Thanks
