Are the death records out there for two Joseph Heather, one died in 1940 Poplar, the other who died in West Ham 1934 ? Also can anyone solve the mystery of James Heather ? He was born in Poplar, abt 1884, parents were James Heather and Sarah Elizabeth Wise. Did he died young, perhaps in the War, if not, who did he marry ?? I've found info about his brother's: Frederick James Heather, and William Heather, he also had three sister's: Sarah Jane Heather, Louisa, and Caroline, but can't find info about him! Help.

GHeather Report 27 Mar 2013 14:07

I know he was on the census return, James Heather parents mentioned, and his brothers and sisters, but can find much else about him ? He may have died young, in the War ?? Can't see any records of him getting married, a mystery man! lol
