Hi
I have very little to go on . Vera and George E Miles were my grandparents. My grandfather died in 1951 aged 37. They had 3 children (Geraldine, Dianne and another daughter who died may have been still born). The only remaining daugther is my aunty Dian(n)e Hazell who was a baby when he died so I am trying to search her father's side.

Thanks for your help.

Did George Have any brothers and Sisters,if so were they older or younger.

Can you name any of them.

You've 'marked as answered', so presumably, no further help is needed?

Flip Report 13 Apr 2013 11:50

Do you know if he was drafted during the war, as there is a gap between Geraldine 1939 and the child who died (Susan A) her birth & death were registered in the June quarter of 1945.

I think this has been marked as answered by mistake Reggie, Rikki is a new member so probably doesn't know it marks the whole thread as answered on the board.

Possible marriage for his parents......


Marriages Dec 1898 (>99%)
Burgess Annie Louisa Bath 5c 1101
Hayward Henry Albert Bath 5c 1101
>>>>MILES Herbert Charles F Bath 5c 1101
>>>>Williams Edith Shutt Bath 5c 1101


As Shirley mentioned above, his marriage cert will give you his father's name and you will need that to be sure.


There are probate records for Henry Charles Miles in 1947 and Edith Shutt Miles in 1948. Will someone please have a look to see if either mentions George E Miles?

Edit: Should be Herbert Charles Miles in 1947.

Edith Shutt Miles
Probate Date: 15 Dec 1948
Death Date: 5 Oct 1948
Death Place: Bath
Registry: Bristol
Admin to Lily May Bowering, married woman.

Added: Lily was their daughter, she was 3 years old on 1911 census.

Herbert Charles Miles
Probate Date: 19 Nov 1947
Death Date: 16 Sep 1947
Death Place: Bath
Registry: Bristol
Probate to Percy Every Grant, solicitors clerk.

So a dead end I'm afraid.

Just in case it is the family - they were living 45 Albany Road from the 1911 census to their deaths, and Herbert was a master bread baker. They had another child apart from Lily, Stanley who was 9.

Thanks for checking the probate records Flip.

Flip Report 13 Apr 2013 12:44

1911 census stated 1 child had died. 2 living, so I assume the death Rosina.

However, without Georges marriage certificate we have no way of knowing if this is the correct family.

It does look promising though, the birth was registered in Q4/1913, so would be 37 in 1951.

Oh well spotted Susan. :-)

So Lily May Bowering mentioned on both the probate records found by you and Flip. :-D
