A copy of George and Esther's marriage cert will give you the names and occupations of their fathers. (If they knew who their Fathers were of course!)

A possibility.......

No you're not thick Nicola - just a learner as we all were once upon a time.

Donald is not listed as one of George's children on the Military records as that information was recorded before Donald was born.

It looks like Hilda and William emigrated sometime after the second world war but I haven't found any records of that yet. Still looking.

My god, your blowing my mind lol. All i had to start with was my grandad ( donald v lowe) his age, whenhe died and the fact he served in hms newfondland. I was told he lied about his age, so he could serve. I found esthers maiden name off docs for donalds birth reg, so used her maiden name and the surname lowe, to findntheir marriage details. And thats as far as ive been able to go. Rootgatherer, do you think those details are connect to donalds dad as you havent listed donald? Im sorry if i sound think, and cant thank young guys enough.mthis is something that should have been done, whilst my nan ( donalds wife ) was a live. Xx

Hi Nicola and welcome to the boards.

No that is the volume and page number.

As in.........Vol 6b page 1419

Handy for when you want to purchace copies of certificates.

You had 6 weeks to record a birth.......so even though Donald was born in Dec1924 his birth was not registered until the beginning of 1925.
