Hi,
I am trying to find a John and Henry Harris B.1867, also a marriage for John marrying a Catherine Mary Norman but the sites I have used are not showing anything. I believed the John and Henry were twins. An address I have of interest is 33 Sagebury Terrace, Stoke Works, Dodderhill, Droitwich. Anything regarding these would be a bonus

Thanks for looking. :-D

Glitterbaby your a star. Yes I do transcribing for FREEBMD but for some reason before I posted the query my computer didn't pick it up, but now it has.
I knew from family info that they lived at 33 Sagebury Terrace then found the 1911 census.

Thanks to everyone who has replied. GREAT.

After looking through all the wonderful information. Its seems that the John Harris connection is the right one after all and that Henry living at Sagebury Terrace is not the Henry we are looking for. Harris is such a common name in this area.
So any additional info about him would be appreciated.

Thanks again.
