It's highly unlikely that anyone reading the boards will have known him, but stranger things have happened. Assuming he was undertaking his National Service, his contemporaries are likely to be in their 80s now.

If you wanted his service records they'd still be with the MOD and can be purchased in certain circumstances for £30 after a rather long wait.

This could be the birth of Stephen's brother James:-

Name: STOREY, James
Registration district: Sedgefield
County: Durham
Year of registration: 1914
Quarter of registration: Jul-Aug-Sep
Mother's maiden name: Bumfrey
Volume no: 10A
Page no: 355

The 1911 census that you mention says the parents of Stephen were James and Elizabeth who had been married about 9 years. This looks like their marriage:-


Name: STOREY, James Gulliver
Registration district: Easington
County: Durham
Year of registration: 1901
Quarter of registration: Apr-May-Jun
Spouse's last name: Not available before 1912
Volume no: 10A
Page no: 803

MarriageFinder: James Gulliver Storey married one of the following people:

BUMFREY, Elizabeth Ann<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
WILLIAMS, Elizabeth
FISHBURN, George

Possible birth of the daughter you were looking for:-


Name: STOREY, Jennie
Registration district: Sedgefield
County: Durham
Year of registration: 1923
Quarter of registration: Jul-Aug-Sep
Mother's maiden name: Bumfrey
Volume no: 10A
Page no: 341

and also this one:-


Name: STOREY, Maud M
Registration district: Sedgefield
County: Durham
Year of registration: 1916
Quarter of registration: Apr-May-Jun
Mother's maiden name: Bumfrey
Volume no: 10A
Page no: 339

I don't have any connection to these people. Just looking them up for you.

If John Storey died in 1950 then it wasn't during WW2 as this ended in 1945.

I think Isabella may have died before 1901 and William married Jane ? who had a son, William born 1889. He is described as stepson in 1901.

Thank you so much
Got a little confused today so visited an elderly relative and he said
My grandad Stephen storey parents are Elizabeth Ann Bumfrey (1881 I think) and James Gulliver Storey (I think 1880, and apparently he won 3 medals in the First World War, which I cannot get info), there children are me grandad Stephen 1906 trimdon), Walter 1909, Jenny 1923, Isabella 1903, James (Jim I think 1914/1920 although I cannot find him).

The confusion comes because iky storey ( brother of James gulliver storey above)
Married Maude bumfrey (sister of Elizabeth bumfrey above)

I've looked on Findmypast and FreeBMD and there is no record of a Maude Bumfrey marrying a Storey.

Many of the records from WW1 were destroyed in a fire so James's records may have been amongst them.

Make an internet search for British WW1 medals.

Porkie_Pie Report 4 Feb 2014 20:37

Acording to Detective's post ref medals he doesn't appear to have been awarded any medals for Gallantry, (That doesn't meen he wasn't a hero) Just that his efforts were not noted in the right quarters?

The qualification for his medals are below

Authorised in 1918, the 1914/15 Star was awarded to personnel who saw service in France and Flanders from 23 November 1914 to 31 December 1915, and to personnel who saw service in any other operational theatre from 5 August 1914 to 31 December 1915.

The British War Medal 1914-1920, authorised in 1919, was awarded to eligible service personnel and civilians. Qualifications for the award varied slightly according to service. The basic requirement for army personnel and civilians was that they either entered a theatre of war, or rendered approved service overseas between 5 August 1914 and 11 November 1918. Service in Russia in 1919 and 1920 also qualified for the award.

The Victory Medal 1914-1919 was also authorised in 1919 and was awarded to all eligible personnel who served on the establishment of a unit in an operational theatre

Look on the census to determine when they could have married, Based on the first child born search marriages from that date back 3 to 5 years for a marriage, The best way to find her maiden name is to buy one of the childrens birth certificates,
