I am trying to find information on my late grandfather I have looked on the 1911 census and various sites with no luck, i do not have an exact birthdate for him. :-)

Dea Report 16 Jan 2013 14:32

There are several possibilities but we must have some more info on him please!¬

Tell us all you know about him - parents, siblings, when and where born (approximate will do).

Did he marry, have children etc.

We do not even know what country we are supposed to be looking in !

When and where (approx) was he born?

When did he die? You must know that...............

From checking back the OP's father I think is Robert Haywood born 1921 Camberwell MMN Collett.

Reggie

Reggie Report 16 Jan 2013 16:45

This is the only death for the exact name

Percy Hayhow abt 1872 Apr-May-Jun 1933 Lambeth Greater London

But until mumsy favours us with some feedback, we're guessing

Reggie

Thanks Astra.............

Births Dec 1921 (>99%)
Collett Robert A Collett Camberwell 1d 1388
Hayhow Robert A Collett Camberwell 1d 1388

Suggests the parents weren't married........so no accurate way of tracing back

Thanks as I said before I never met him and my dad never really mentioned him. they did live in Foreign Street and my Nans name was Maud, Dad was there only child and his name was Robert, when Percy died Nan married twice again
his name was Gandar no more children and then Major John Martin, Major being his first name, he was my Mothers father as my Mum and Dad were married first ther marriage was perfectly legal, I know i used to have to explain my dad and mum were Stepbrother and Stepsister. There seems to be a lot of Essex Hayhow which i will look into :-D

This note with the second entry:

The above transcription represents what is in the GRO index but it is referred to by the following entry

which implies that this is a late entry, that is an entry that has been registered in a quarter later than the event. See here for more information on late entries.
