The Cooper girls must be the children of a brother to Kathleen

Find her birth on freebmd, then look for births of siblings.

Follow through on them, looking for marriages, and children

You will need to get the 1941 marriage cert............there are 4 Kathleen M Cooper birth registrations in JFM 1921, so no way of knowing which one is hers until you find out her father's name, and cross-refer with possible marriages for her parents.

..............unless you know 100% where she was born...............or the first name of either of her parents

The cert can be ordered on line from the GRO, and will cost £9.25, inclusive of postage

Unless your father had children with his first wife, she and her family are in no way connected to you

A member named Tony MAY have Francis in his GR tree...................find Francis on here under 'search all trees'.............and send a contact message to Tony

And put your tree on GR......................but remember that you must not include any living people whose permission you have not obtained.

Putting your tree on here may turn up some contacts...............

I can't see any conclusive evidence of brothers for your father..............but look for info yourself.............you may spot something which isn't apparent to unconnected people

Rebecca

Go to freebmd.............

.................find your father's birth registration

Then use the surnames to try to find siblings................................

You say you 'know'.....he had brothers.....


Are you 100% sure that they were FULL brothers?

When and where did your grandparents marry?

BTW.....please delete the other thread you posted

Marriages Mar 1941 (>99%)

Cooper Kathleen M Thompson Chesterfield 7b 1961
Thompson Francis F Cooper Chesterfield 7b 1961

Now go to freebmd............put in the surnames................and 'start' from Mar 1941.............see what results you get

I think you'll come to the same conclusion as I have............NO James........NO Steven/Stephen

You haven't made any comment of the info people have taken the trouble to find for you.....................perhaps you would do so..........

Reggie

Reggie Report 24 Jul 2013 22:40

On your other thread, you give different info about your grandfather

................you say that this is his death...............

Death
Name: THOMPSON, Francis Smythe
Registration district: Scunthorpe
County: Lincolnshire
Year of registration: 1985
Month of registration: June
Date of Birth:22 November 1919
Volume no: 7
Page no: 1194
Reg no: 685


BUT......there is no birth on freebmd to match..................so was he born outside of England/Wales?

Do you have any documentary proof of any of the info you have been working on?

Your father's birth cert would be very useful..............

...........we would like to be able to help you..............but we - and you - need some hard facts
