Arthur (Andrew) HARDY

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Cisco Report 22 Jan 2013 17:47

I am looking for a Arthur (Andrew) HARDY born on the 17 January 1920. Arthur married a Catharine/Katharine Walsh/e in 1946 in Hendon, Middlesex.
I believe Arthur died in June 2003 - I have found a Death Record for him for Peterborough Registration District, Vol 3351C, Vol Page C40G.
I have no records as to whether they had children.
So far I've drawn blanks. If anyone can shed some light I'd be extremely grateful.

The informant on the death cert may be an offspring.

The marriage is in the name of Walshe (I should imagine by 1946 most people knew how to spell their own name )

There are children born to Hardy/ Walshe marriage on freebmd.

Just enter both surnames to find them

From new thread:

"Hello – can anyone help me trace the possible whereabouts of Catharine/Katharine Walshe – or any of her relatives. She was born about 1921 and her father’s name was Dennis (or Edmond) Walsh and she lived at Roseberry, Newbridge, County Kildaire, Ireland. She married in Hendon, Middlesex in 1946 to Arthur Hardy and it is believed they may possibly have emigrated (to Australia?) some time after. Many thanks."

Best stick to this thread.

Many thanks for this Mike. I've found 3 children - will now have to start looking hard.


Cisco Report 25 Jan 2013 13:33

Hello again -

I've identified the 3 children of Arthur HARDY and Catharine WALSHE.
I think I've found the death of Arthur HARDY, but cannot find the death of Catharine WALSHE.

It may well be that Arthur and Catharine were divorced and she went on to remarry.

Is there any way I can find out if they were divorced?

Many thanks, Joyce


rootgatherer Report 25 Jan 2013 13:53

Catherine may have died after Arthur and death indexes in Ancestry only go up o 2006.

Why do you think that they divorced please?

Who was the informant on Arthur's death certificate?


Cisco Report 28 Jan 2013 11:47

If Catharine did die after Arthur, how would I find out if Ancestry only goes up to 2006? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I'm still awaiting the Death Cert for Arthur.

I have no reason to suppose they were divorced, it was an idea.

Many thanks.
