1939 Register help

Postby Liamcornes1983 » Sat Dec 16, 2017 3:40 pm

Hi All, I have been trying to find my Grandad John Thomas Corn(e)s born 18.04.1928 in West Bromwich. He died in 1991, I cannot seem to find him, he should be with either parent at 2 different households. I submitted desth certificate for evidence, and they were unhelpful, where do I go from here?

Regards

When trying to find a child on the 1939 there are a number of possibilities.

First the obvious is he/she with parents do the address of the parents have any redacted records?
Next look for grand parents on both sides of the family and check for any redacted records at their addresses.
If there are still no possibilities try aunts and uncles.
If the child is of school age were the school classes evacuated enmass to a hotel or even under the Camps Act which enabled children to be sent to specially constructed “chalet” type camps.

Cheers

P.S. I should also note that the 1939 can be searched just by using date of birth or even date of birth and forename this can sometimes help tracing individuals & family members (use the advanced search box top right)
As we have gained from the past, we owe the future a debt, which we pay by sharing today.

I had an initial difficulty tracing a relative on the Register. The problem was that the date of birth had been misread. Instead of the year being for (19)13, the transcriber had thought it was (18)73. Some problems such as this can occur where there are blemishes on the original pages. The person in question was with his parents who had been born in the 1870s and presumably the transcriber thought this was also the case. Relationships are not always clear on the Register as there isn't a column indicating them as on the census returns.

Hi all, I've looked at address where the mother is she's living with her parents and my grandfather's sister, and my grandfather's father is living in another household with his father, and brothers.

None in fathers household in the mother's household there is one between the mother and one of the mother's siblings I did submit death evidence of grandad but it did not match apparently. Grandad's sister is there clear as day aged 9 in mother's household, as far as I know grandad wasn't evacuated or in boarding school.

Liam,
What do you mean that the death certificate was unhelpful, I would be concerned that having spent the money they (FMP) are not helping you. The National Archives do searches but it will cost you.

You do not give us anything to go on but here is a start for you.
There are 105 male Corns in Staffordshire & Warwickshire born in 1928 plus or minus 40 years on the 1939 National Registration, do any of them connect with the family you are looking for?
There are 110 male Cornes in Staffordshire & Warwickshire born in 1928 plus or minus 40 years on the 1939 National Registration, do any of them connect with the family you are looking for?

There are 129 Female Corns in Staffordshire & Warwickshire born in 1928 plus or minus 40 years on the 1939 National Registration, do any of them connect with the family you are looking for?
There are 146 Female Cornes in Staffordshire & Warwickshire born in 1928 plus or minus 40 years on the 1939 National Registration, do any of them connect with the family you are looking for?

Have you tried searching for the 4 grandparents of your grandfather?
Did your grandfather have siblings, can you find any of them?

Look for each person individually, look for each female under both their maiden name if single in 1939 and their married name if they married later, sometimes one of the names does not show on the index.

Cheers
