Looking for ANTHONY "Damien"HEATON

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Ben Report 13 Apr 2013 15:01

Hello am looking for someone called anthony heaton who was also known as Damien. He would have been born mid to late 50's (we believe) we think he was born or at some point lived in Barnsley. And we also believe he supported Sheffield united. He was in the army and based at thorney island around the mid to late 80's. he also has a brother called TIM. If you know anything then please message your help would be much appreciated

Welcome to the boards, Ben.

Have you looked on free bmd to see if you can identify his birth?


Ben Report 13 Apr 2013 15:29

No I haven't. Thank u


patchem Report 13 Apr 2013 15:30

Do you know if Tim was younger or older?


Ben Report 13 Apr 2013 15:37

Erm not sure we are just going to see if we can find out. Had no luck on that website as we don't know an awful lot about him


patchem Report 13 Apr 2013 15:43

I am trying to find 'Tim' and 'Anthony' with the same mother's maiden names, born anywhere in Yorkshire, but not much luck, I agree.
So it would be useful to know which was the older brother, and whether Tim (or Timothy) or Anthony were definite first names, and Damien was just a 'nickname'.

If you were born in Barnsley would you support Sheffield United?


Ben Report 13 Apr 2013 15:44

We can't find out. We believe he may have been older but not 100% we only have little information and the Internet is the only way of finding out more


Ben Report 13 Apr 2013 15:47

We're not sure if he was born in Yorkshire at all we just know he supported the team and lived up there at some point. And we believe Damien may have been a middle name I am currently waiting for my birth certificate to see 100% what his name was


Ben Report 13 Apr 2013 16:25

If what we just found out is true then his first name was damien


patchem Report 13 Apr 2013 16:32

Get back in touch when you have the birth certificate and we will see what we can find.

Could you say if he married you mother?

Sorry, just read about Damien.
We cross-posted.


Ben Report 13 Apr 2013 16:46

No he didn't marry my mum


Ben Report 13 Apr 2013 16:54

Hello we have just found out some information. His name was damien anthony heaton, he was a Leo so would have been born July/aug of 1956 or 1957


jax Report 13 Apr 2013 17:02

Not seeing any births for a Damien in England or Wales


Ben Report 13 Apr 2013 17:09
