Where was he living when you last had contact?

Was he married?

WHEN was he born...............year only.

Was his birth registered as TONY?

What was his mother's given forename? And her maiden name......................

Think Mattie must have been a nick name as there is no marriage listed for them .

A GR member named Tony has a Cecil Coates (Brighton 1918) in his tree.

Any use?

Looks as if he was Anthony and born in 1958

The birth is on FreeBMD

Edit wrong parents names for this one who married in 1952

Reggie. Name is exactly right, DOB is right. I never Knew of his death as I had moved away. But it just sounds right. Cecil and Martha were Tony's parents. Vera and John Halstein were my parents. Vera and Cecil were brother and sister.

Although it's some time ago that Cecil died his death cert may be a help .maybe tony was the informant and it will give his address at that time

There is no birth for Coates/Lloyd for any name which could remotely be interpreted as 'Tony'......and no birth for Coates/Lloyd anywhere near the district in which they married.

Was he their natural child?

Reggie Report 4 Apr 2014 12:44

Have you tried to contact the 'Tony' about whom I told you - with this man in his tree?

Births Sep 1917 (>99%)
Coates Cecil H Waterman Brighton 2b 286

But..........there is no record of a 'Vera' as a sibling on freebmd

But your maternal grandparents look to be:
