Stanley Adams
Birth Date: 16 Aug 1901
Date of Registration: Dec 1981
Age at Death: 80
Registration District: Isle of Wight
Inferred County: Hampshire
Volume: 20
Page: 1949

If not, do you have his exact DOB, and that of Ediths


Julie Report 20 Aug 2013 16:55

stanley is on free bmb as june 1901 leeds
edith helena as sept 1902 carlisle free bmd
the one above is possible - but i talked to his son who is 90 and when i asked where his dad had died i asked if it was hampshire isle of wight and he said" it was down there but not that far down "
thanks for your help

As they are direct ancestors of your's, it might be useful for you to buy their BC to get the exact dob.

Information on the DC is only as good as the informant's knowledge, and they can get dates wrong. My dad made my grandmother a year older! :-D

ok thanks - will do that


+++DetEcTive+++ Report 20 Aug 2013 17:06

The M could stand for her maiden name of Meyerhùber ?


Julie Report 20 Aug 2013 17:17

thanks for this
this certainly seems that it could be her
but why would she be in chichester -- they were quite poor -i wouldnt have thought they had ventured out of leeds
i will have to look more into this

Julie Report 20 Aug 2013 20:02

gins above is the right one --- but that makes the hampshire isle of wight one the wrong one as different birth dates
