The one on the current ER was born 1963 so not the same man

There is one living in Frome up until 2002 who looks to be the one born 1953 and he may still be living there but opted out

I was looking at that 1953 birth last night, there were another couple called Burton/Sheppard who married in Frome and was wondering if he was their son as he could be living in that area now

He maybe in a couple of trees on here, could be worth asking them

Look in 'search all trees'....................someone else on GR seems to be researching Arthur

And put your tree on here.............that's the best way to make connections

Unless the half-brothers were over 21 when you were born, the ER won't help you

And you've been given 1950 and 1955

You could try looking for births...........

http://www.freebmd.org.uk/

Would they have been Nellie's sons? Or Arthur's?

Had Arthur been married before?

EDIT:

There is a Burton/Sheppard birth in Birmingham in 1953......check it out.

And possible marriage(s) for his name on FMP

The same man is on the current ER with wife and daughters

Hi
Many thanks for this..
It is a shame my mother has passed away but I think I had two elder half brothers .Do I ask for Nellie's death cert to try to locate them or would it be better to use the electoral register for the address in Birmingham for the date when I was born.
