Welcome to the boards, Denise.

As you’ve posted on the Military Chat board, presumably you’re looking for service records? He’d have been too young to serve in WW1 & Records for servicemen after 1922 are still with the MOD.

If you’re sure he was in Services you could apply for a copy of his for a non refundable fee off £30.

This is the link for obtaining UK service records:

Amy in 1939 Register?

Roscoe Household (4 People)
11 Elm Street , Ellesmere Port U.D., Cheshire, England

Amy ? Berriman (Poppleton,Roscoe) 23 Nov 1916 General Servant Seeking Work
John Roscoe 21 Apr 1855 Udc Labourer
Sarah J Roscoe 21 Oct 1930 Unpaid Domestic Duti
James E Roscoe 31 May 1930 At School
Ref: RG101/4014C/027/36 Letter Code: LEUQ

The names in brackets mean that she was a Roscoe on 29 Sep 1939, then a Poppleton then later a Berriman. There’s only one date given for the change of surname, of 21 Jul 1950 which ties in with a marriage to Albert. It’s always possible that the sheet was incorrectly compiled & she should have originally shown as Poppleton.

Likely first marriage, even though the name change was not dated

Marriages Dec 1939 (>99%)

Poppleton James E C Roscoe W.Cheshire 8a 1699

Amy’s death. It’s not unusual for the informant to get the birth date slightly wrong.
