1939 Register - Occupation partly unreadable...

Postby Cachalot6972 » Mon Dec 11, 2017 12:43 pm

Hi All, I can't make out the second word of Cyril Jones' occupation.
Fmp have transcribed it as 'Lancer', but I'm not convinced. I think the first letter is probably 'T' (after comparing to someone with an occupation of Tool Maker on the same page).

Could it be 'engineer turner and grinder'? I've got one of those in my tree. FMP has transcribed the last of the three occupation words for Cyril as grinder, so 'turner' before it would fit.

Yes - "Turner" it is. It's taken me a while to realise that the enumerator's "n" looks more like a "u" but compare it to the latter "n" in "Engineer" and you'll see what I mean. Once you have that, then the letters do all hang together to make "Turner".

Thank you for the replies, and I have to agree that the word is (or should) be 'Turner'. Shocking writing though, even mine is better than that!
