Pamela Report 4 Nov 2017 14:20

Need a fresh pair of eyes Seem to be going around in circles

George was born 1/5/1935 in Lambeth.
Mum: Doris De Luc b 1910. Dad:Charles Stapleton b 1912

He was married to my late sister Doreen Witten in 1960, but they later divorced
They had two boys, Paul b1961 and Gary b1963

They lost all contact, but the boy's would like to try trace his were abouts if possible ( I can't find a death on him) as they lost their Mum in 2001

Any info would be great
Thanks for any help

Thanks Shirley
Yes i know about his parents, we just dont know Georges whereabouts.
Even his brother can't find him

No one came up with anything about him when I tried this 5yrs ago

I'm not very good at this, but have trawled through loads of stapletons but can't find a death for him

Well online deaths don't go much further than 2005

He could also,still be alive as he would in his eighties

He could have gone abroad

If his brother doesn't know where he is then seems he didn't stay in touch with famiiy

Are you 100% sure of his DOB?

His birth wasn't registered until the July/Aug/Sept quarter of 1935, which seems late for a 1st May birth.

How long ago was the last contact with him?

Pamela -

you say, "He was def born 1 may 1935 as ihave found that on line with mums name"

Do you mean you found the birth record online and bought a copy of the birth cert?

If not, where did you find his exact DOB, please?

I'm assuming you're aware of this exchange from 2008?
