Kay Dennis looking for Arthur Stanley Dennis

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


WDYTYA Advisor Report 22 Feb 2013 12:54

Born 16.02.1879 in Colchester, Essex. Last heard of in 1911 at Kingwood, Hockley Heath, Birmingham. Unable to find a death record or immigration. Whatever happened to Arthur Stanley!


Janice Report 22 Feb 2013 15:04

Laura Helen, his wife, is listed as a widow in the probate records when she died in 1958, and her address was High Wycombe, Bucks. That narrows the time frame down a bit.

The reference for their marriage in 1907 has an 'a' after it. Not sure what that could mean unless it was amended later - perhaps an error in one of their names?


Janice Report 22 Feb 2013 15:22

Daughter Grace Rosamond was born in 1914 so presumably he was around then - the birth was registered in Wallasey, Cheshire.

I came across a reference once before with an "a" after it. If memory serves me correct it does mean that there was an amendment. I will try and double check

I,m not seeing a corresponding birth for this gentleman, so I wonder if he switched his names around?

this question was from last year ................... and it doesn't look as though the requester returned then, so I doubt he/she will return this year either ;-)
