Am trying to find the Birth and Death and Marriage dates of my Grandfather. Either his name is George,
George Henry or Henry George all I know is that he was Married to Mabel Frances Bettridge Birth 5/9/1894/Death 9/5/1967 being my Grandmother.
I have only been on this sight for a couple of weeks and very short time in between working and running business, houses kids etc.
Time is such a wonderful thing if you can find it, but this is interesting and have had contact with a cousin in Scotland.
Hi Diane
I would like to follow up on my dad's side of the family as I have info on my Grandmothers Fathers side and not my Dads side.
Any hints on how to carry on in this sight would be much apprieciated. Not sure if this is the way to go but will find out.
Thank You to anyone who reads this Thank You Rose
All have a good day
Regards Rose

From Rosemary

I don't think Mabel remarried not that I can see but I am not sure about this, it is all new to me.
Mary her first born was living in Harvey Western Australia
Mary is my Dad's sister and Dad Dudley John Pantall was born in Katanning Western Australia born 29/7/1925
Dad's mum decended from the John Moir b 9/1/1791and Elizabeth Melville
b 28/4/1795
Where Philpott comes in I have no idea but maybe that is a neme from Pantall's ?
not sure if this can help in any way but THANKYOU for trying
Regards Rose

There was also this death...
Could be your grandfathers mother...

Name .. PANTALL MARY ANN
Age .. 39
Father .. WILLIAM ??
Mother .. STORY, ELIZABETH
Place of birth .. BIRMINGHAM ENG
Reg. No. .. 2387
Year .. 1897

There was also this death and as the middle initial is 'W' and there is no age given I am not sure if he is connected but could be your grandfathers father....

Name .. PANTALL HENRY W
District .. KATANNING
Reg. No. .. 82
Year .. 1929

As you will see from the following postings, neither Henry is found after 1925 !
My grandfather had an 'H' as an initial in his name which was mistaken as a 'W' so this death could actually be your grandfathers, not your great grandfather. You would have to buy the certificate to know for sure.

However 2 Henry's are missing from further electoral rolls and I only found 1 death !
