If you think he is buried in Tottenham cemetery then that must have been local to his home at that time.
From what you are saying he was separated from gran if she was with someone else.

It would also suggest she didn't know he had died if she waited to marry and her husband was a batchelor so the impediment to them marrying before was because she still married Would have thought if he died before 1946 when she was with Harry she was free to marry then .

Ann, its so frustrating isnt it.You may be right about them losing some records.Anything is possible I suppose.I 'think' he is buried in Totenham cementry but as it is such a big place going looking for it at ramdom is a no no. I will have to pursuade oh to go up there to see if I can find someone to ask.next assignment I think when I have saved some more pennies. lol :-S

Anne Marie,
I have the same problem with my Grandad who lived in Camberwell. He would have died between 1914- 1918. He committed suicide but still he should show on the records. Can't find him anywhere. Perhaps they lost some death and burial records there in Camberwell for that time scale!

Hi Shirley and Jan,
Jan I have asked before about him and you gave me some sugestions.
His name was George Henry Tucker B 1877 Camberwell.I know he must have died sometime between 1918 and 1952.My nan remarried in 1952 but had been living with my 'uncle harry' since before 1946.The family lived in and around Camberwell/Islington/London I believe.
The 2 certs I have are George Tucker died D Jan 1952 Camberwell , retired merchant seaman, and George Tucker D nov 1929 west ham, Railway carman.
My George was a bootmaker.

Do you know where he was living at the time, have you his actual birth date sometimes this helps as after c1975 the birth date is shown on the GRO record .

Do you want to give his name and which certs you have bought so we can take a look too

Getting really frustated now. I would love to know when my grandad died but have sent for 2 certs that I thought might be his and both are wrong GRRRRR. Has anyone any sugestions how to find this out without ordering many more certs and costing me a lot of money.
