If he's the 1936 one, his brother is on 192.com.

Does your husband know the names of his grandparents, and/or has he the marriage certificate of his parents?
This would be the probable marriage of the Leeds grandparents
Marriages Mar 1923
Gordon Florence E Hume Leeds 9b 582
Hume Francis Gordon Leeds 9b 582
Thanks

Added:
Patricia has him as born 1937 Leeds in her tree.

There is only one birth in Leeds..........

But...........the fact that he married in Leeds does not necessarily indicate that he was born there.

Post feedback on here, please, Patricia.....

However, if he WAS born in Leeds, it is highly likely that he had two older siblings, one of each gender.

The probable brother married in 1953.

gosh - thank you all for your help I do believe dennis's father was called frances just a bit confused about siblings as my mother in law said he was the only child (perhaps she was wrong) I will look at your suggestions . thanks a lot.

If you think Dennis's father was called Frances, then this marriage still stands:
Marriages Mar 1923
Gordon Florence E Hume Leeds 9b 582
Hume Francis Gordon Leeds 9b 582
and Births for Joan in 1924 and Brian G in 1930.
