Hi All. Arthur Rose was my grandfather on my mothers side Born abt 1892, lived most of his adult life in Flaxby nr Knaresborough. Having traced my relatives (mostly mothers side from devon) i come to a stop with him. As I remember he is mixed somehow with the family Vollans (photographers in Knaresborough) but I have no surviving relatives that can shed any light here, so If anyone has any ideas It would be great. Im a bit of a novice here!
Thanks. Ian

There is this one on the 1911 census:-

Do you know your grandmother's name? Their marriage certificate should name Arthur's father (if he knew his father).

Have you got your Mother's birth certificate, and her parents' marriage certificate?
You do not need relatives with memories, you need certificates.

Lived in Knaresborough, but born where?
Died Knaresborough?

Is this his death?

Hi All, thanks for the replies. My mother who is still living but has very little memory after an accident remembers my grandfather setting off early on his bicycle and coming back late and saying he was visiting family. She also remembers that the Vollans family were always regarded as "family" and this must come from my grandfathers side as my Grandmothers side are all from Devon E Stonehouse area.
He was serving in WW1 as sail-maker on warship :-) and fought in battle of Jutland, on HMS Birmingham?? or Coventry?? (not been this direction yet).
He Married my grandmother in Devon and after the war settled in Flaxby. Alice Mary Ryles being her Maiden name. They had 4 daughters together in Flaxby my mother being the youngest. This part is in the Thompsons Family Tree (hope its available to see). There was always a family rumour that he was born out of wedlock :-0 or some similar scandal :-D but how true it is I dont know. He died also in Flaxby, was born (abt 1892 I think in Knaresborough area but also not 100%. I remember his funeral so must have been in 70,s

If I think of anything else I will repost, Thanks all once again! this seems a bit of puzzle / scandal. Hope I can live it down ;-)

rgds to all. Ian

You need to get the 1916 marriage cert if you wish to build an accurate tree

And...........a little tip.

It helps us to help you if you give us all your info when you first ask for assistance.

If he died after 1969, his birthplace and DOB will be on the death cert....assuming the person who registered the death had accurate details
