Hello

He may have enlisted but I have no knowledge of this.

The JW Gray in Easington is not him either unfortunately, though they may be cousins.

The info from the national archives was also very useful.

Thanks to everyone for your input.

Can anyone tell me why a person would not appear on the 1939 Reg. The rest of the family are shown but not the father (Joseph Gray born 1907, a miner ). I can't see him in the Home Guard records, or with other family members. I assume he must be recorded somewhere to get his ration book. I have run out of ideas.

Thank you


Was his wife Ellen?
Cheers

Thank you for explaining how the register worked.

Does this mean that people were registered at their place of work , if they worked shifts for example?

Would you know if there is an article I could read which would explain the process in more detail?

Thanks again for all your help.


No if he was working he should have been recorded at his home address unless he was away for more then that one night.

Plenty of information on these pages

Hello Guy

No sorry his wife wasn't called Ellen, but thank you for the link.
