I am searching for relatives of John Richard Deeley, believed to be born 1925 and died 2000 and had lived in the Earlswood/Studley areas of Birmingham/Solihull. If he was your relative and served with the 2nd Punjab Regiment circa 1945 please contact me as I have an identifiable item that might interest you.

Welcome to the boards Colin.

If you look in "Search" at top right of screen and then click on "search all member trees" and put in John Deeley you will find three members who have someone of this name in their tree. Click on "find out more" and send them a private message.

Welcome to the boards, Colin.

Unfortunately, it's highly unlikely that any of his relatives will just happen upon your post.

I would normally suggest you try searching "All member trees" under "Search" at the top right of this page.
However, I see that nobody has him on their tree, at least on GR.

One person (Alan) has a John Deeley born 1924 in Birmingham. Unless you already know who Alan is, click on "Find out more" beside his name, and send a message explaining your interest.

Is this the death you mean? Born in 1924?

(Also one closed record)

There's a possible marriage for John in Solihull in 1954.
His wife from that marriage is on the Warwickshire Electoral Roll for 2005.
Of course, it may not be his marriage.
I don't see any children from that marriage, unless they didn't always live in Warwickshire

The closed record with John and his parents in 1939 is a sister, and her married name is visible - two different spellings.

There's a possible marriage in 1956 in Stratford.
Sadly, the husband died in 1964 in Warwickshire. The wife MAY have died in 2018 in Wales.
They had a daughter, but there are several marriages which could be hers, so I won't guess at what her surname might be now.

He and his wife seem to have connections to La Moye Golf club on Jersey.
