Hi All, I am trying to trace when my Grandfather-George Boorn died. I never knew him but believe he was born in 1880 . He married my grandmother Amelia Read in 1902and had 4 children- Henry in 1905, Charles in 1907, Emily in 1909 and Amelia (my mother) in 1911. He appears in the 1911 census and lived with my grandmother at 144 Gladstone Bldgs, Shoreditch, but I cannot find anything on him since then. He had passed away when my mother married in 1940.


Also trying to trace my great grandmother Anna Matilda Read nee Evans who was at 31 Roscoe Street Plaistow in 1884
