Thanks to everyone who helped me find his sister in 1901. She married very young.

Now I am looking for Alfred Joseph Flint in 1911 aged 21. He's not living with his sister have checked out all the combinations of his name that I can think of or has he changed his first name altogether? born 1890 Croydon Father Henry died 1905 mother Mary Ann at home with youngest 2 children.

This seems a problem family with changes of names, why don;t people when filling official forms put in their proper details?

If you have another thread on the family, might be better on there - or at least post the link so we can get him in context.

I'm confused as to why you've started this thread on Alfred Joseph Flint, rather than adding to your previous thread of 21st March entitled 'Where is he? which was also about Alfred Joseph Flint, as GlitterBaby pointed out in her post of 13.37 today.

Helpers can get very fed up if they do a lot of work on a thread, only to find the same work has been done previously - in this case just 4 days ago.

Not sure why you have reposted?
