looking for living relatives of Philip Jordan lived in Stoke-on-Trent as a child moved to Newcastle up on Tyne. As a young adult lived with Eva and William Jordan, william was his older brother.He then left Newcastle Upon Tine to live with his sisters in Doncaster. The sisters were Winnie and Betsy Jordan.Jordan being their maiden name.we think Philip was born after 1912 as we can not find him on any census. Any help with this subject would be gratefully received many thanks Chris

In view of when he was born, and rough location, this might be his death? I recommend you get the birth cert to find out his birth date:

Name: Philip Jordan
Birth Date: 6 Nov 1916
Date of Registration: Jul-Aug-Sep 1979
Age at Death: 62
Registration District: Sheffield
Inferred County: South Yorkshire
