Been researching my sister in laws family. Reginald Harvey b 18/09/1928 in Wivenhoe Essex . Father Thomas Harvey Mother May Elizabeth Whittle. I have all details on his birth but cannot find his marriage or children. Tried GR and Free BMD. My sister in law says he married and had.several children as far as she remembers . No idea who he married . She married his brother Alan Ivan Harvey and they went to Australia.

Where was he last known to be?

Problem will be is probably not a unique name

alan or allen?

Reg had middle initial E, not that it helps much , too many to choose from

Wivenhoe came under Lexden and Colchester at different times Thanks for the PM Will investigate. That seems a good possibility. My sister in law does no know what happend to the Harveys as she lost contact after her divorce from his brother Ivan in Australia and his later death

If the Colchester marriage is right, they look to be still in Colchester on 2013 ERs on 192.com, maybe someone with FMP could check out rather than buy credits? Post code CO1, but there are gaps where they may have opted out - but they were there in 2008.
