Thread: Looking for death information - Leonard Edgar Biggs

  1. #11
    Thanks for the help Lin and Kat. Everything you've found look like positive hits.. as you discovered, there was also a son with the same name, LE Biggs.

    The hospital/institution is a possible track.. I've done some searching with the initials, but will put more time into that. Still hoping to find a clue somewhere..

    Hi Elaine, yes, 7 Charles Henry Street is where my grandfather Leslie was born 16/08/22.

    Births Sep 1919
    Biggs Sidney H Birch Birmingham 6d 545 ..........Harry on 1939?

    Births Sep 1922
    Biggs John L Birch Birmingham 6d 692 .......... Leslie on 1939?
    I think Hilda b 1905 on the 1939 register must be this one as I cannot see a Hilda birth anywhere .

    It maybe that the death of father was registered in the same district as the birth unless the mother lied about the father...it must be within 9 months.

    It must be mistranscribed? badly. What was the exact district of the birth?

    edit ....just seen Kats post

    Tried messaging the local register office? Sometimes events miss the general register office indexes.

    Asides from that, maybe message the local council asking about burials and cremations. I have one who died in 1930, i know this because he left a will. There is no death registration locally or federally.

    Thanks, no I haven’t yet. I didn’t realise they would be available to help.. I’ll try emailing the Birmingham register office, and I guess the Uxbridge and Kensington ones too maybe?..

    Bit of an update for this one: I applied for to the Birmingham registry office for a death cert in the name of Leonard Edgar Biggs. They search 1920-1924 but were unable to find one :/

    that is a shame, do you know how far they search? wonder if it has been mistranscribed as something like brigss. I did look at some of them, but nothing looked obvious.
