1939 register

Postby kelly85 » Fri Apr 03, 2020 6:22 pm

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 appreciated

Thanks in advance

The record of anyone born less than 100 years ago is officially closed unless they are known to have died.

If John and Robert were with Wilfred and May when the register was complied they would appear on the records but with their names redacted so as black lines.

However, this isn't the case with John and Robert so it would suggest that they weren't with them at the time. Even if their names are redacted you may be able to make a guess as to where they were. Did they spend time with other members of the family - for example their grandparents? If so, if you find any relative they may have been with and their are redacted entries with them, this could be John and Robert.

They may have been evacuated by then .... that started a few weeks before the register was taken.

Searching the 1939 for the date of birth & surname produces this
20 Bellfields Street, Market Harborough
Charles E Adams 06 May 1883
John (Lawrence) Lawrence 06 Feb 1932 Male At School Single

There is another child born 1932 and one officially closed record

Thank you for the replies.

Robert and John were definitely not with May & Wilfred on the register and they are definitely not with May’s family as I have researched that side of the family in great detail.
