1939 register

Having problems trying to find my 2nd greats Aunts children on the 1939 register.

My great Aunt May Eliza Lawrence (was Bates) and her husband Wilfred Lawrence were living at Grosvenor Road, Islington in 1939 however, I am unable to find their children John William Lawrence 6/2/1932 born in Hackney and Robert Lawrence 19/4/34 born in Hackney.

Would it be possible that they weren’t included on the register if so for what reason?

Any help ...

Norwegian DNA

Hi everyone, very recently I have discovered (on ancestry and when I uploaded my results to my heritage) that I have Norwegian ancestry, it differs from 12-19% and I don't believe that there's a single person in the family, close or distant, who would have any idea about it whatsoever.
Having spoken to my father, we have a suspicion that we have agreed which part of the family this could potentially be from (we both ...

Rebecca Cox

Six years ago I posted about Rebecca Jesney born in 1802 at Gayton-le-Marsh, Lincolnshire. She left Lincolnshire and turned up in Hillingdon, Middlesex, where she married John Cox at The Providence Chapel, Uxbridge in 1843.

Rebecca was my 3x great aunt and I wondered whether anyone related to the Cox family had information on how she came to leave Lincolnshire, or on the lives of this couple? The informant of her death was her sister ...

Soldiers missing family details.

Searching for the family of this soldier and hope this is their address given in 1915. Hoping someone can find them on the 1911 Census. I have tried on both A and FmP with no luck. Obviously not doing something right. Image off Fold 3.

Australia records - help please

James Cronin was born on 12 May 1896 in Bristol, UK. Family folklore say he “jumped ship” and went to live in Australia, I recall him sending Christmas cards from, possibly, Melbourne in the 1970s.

This is all that I know of James, who to my father was known as Uncle Jim:

He joined the Worcester Regiment in Dec 1912 but was discharged medically unfit in Mar 1913.

There is a Warrant dated Feb 1914 ...

Ghost of Kennington Oxfordshire

According to local legend a ghost of a highway man is said to roam the road from Bagley Woods to Kennington. I looked in old newspaper articles and found there was an instance of a highway man robbing somebody passing by. Although now in Oxfordshire Kennington used to be in Berkshire, so the information is in Berkshire newspapers. There are several random headstones in the woods.

I was wondering if anybody has heard this ...
