I am trying to trace Alfred Joseph Flint born Jul-Sept 1890 Croydon Surrey. Parents Henry & Mary Flint.

He does not show on 1911 census return on this site or on Ancestry or find my past.

According to War Graves his nest of kin were his parents no joy using their names either. He died on 8/11/1914

Please can someone show me where to go

Kind Regards

Tony Flint :-S
