I am trying to trace the Tyrer family originally from Liverpool.
George Evan Tyrer DOB 03/03/1898 married Florence Annie Brown (DOB 1898) in 1920. I believe they had 4 children, Beryl born1930, Leslie William born1933, Edna and Audrey Edith.
I have as yet no details as to what happened to George or the other children. If anyone can help or offer any advice as to where I could look for futher info I would be very grateful.

What info are you looking for? Are you looking for George's parents and siblings? If so do you know George's father's name?

George's Parents were William Henry Tyrer (born 1878) and Florence Cooper (born 1880). I have information about his siblings already. I am maily interested in George himself when he died etc. He is a brother of my grandmother. That has appeared while tracing my tree. We never knew he existed. None of our family photos include him so he left the family home. Any information abouot him or wife or children really.

I dont suppose you know if he served in WW1, he would have been very young but old enough I guess

I cant see him on the 1901 census with parents William/Florence, are the parents correct? I see theres a post with Edward and Louisa as parents...is the wrong?

There is a George Tyrer death (but no E)

1955 Sept Sidcup 5b 548 Age 58yrs

And

George E Dec 1956 Age 54yr Liverpool N 10d 251

Might not be him but you never know its worth keeping hold of until everything else is ruled out

ive searched through the indexes and the info I posted earlier is all that I found for George

Might be worth looking abroad. Also found no death for his wife in the indexes. Maybe she re-married?

I've done a quick non-paying 1911 search for George and it seems that his parents are William and Florence.
