What do you mean by "looking for"? Is the requester trying to find out his ancestors or what became of him?

Please be more specific with the type of information being sought. Thank you.

She seems to have been born in Kent.

England & Wales, FreeBMD Birth Index, 1837-1915 about Isabel Clara Fissenden
Name: Isabel Clara Fissenden
Date of Registration: Jan-Feb-Mar 1897
Registration district: Strood
Inferred County: Kent
Volume: 2a

There is a birth of a Grant/Fissenden daughter in Strood, Kent in 1926. The index entry in on FreeBmd.

She married Alfred C E Lancaster in Strood in 1947

His death

Gender Male
Year 1996
Birth Year 1924
Birth Month 3
Birth Day 11
District CHATHAM
County Kent
Country England
Event Quarter 4
District Number 5611A
Record set England & Wales deaths 1837-2007

Not seeing any records for the Grant/Fissenden daughter after her marriage - she may be living. If you were to purchase Alfred's DC, the informant might be a relative.

Edit - a person with her first name & first middle initial is listed on the ER 2002-2010 in Rochester. She may have died since then, moved, or opted out.

There are 2 Lancaster/Grant births registered in Chatham, in 1949 & 1954. Details can be found on FreeBmd.

The one born in 1949 is on the ER to 2013 with his wife, living in Rochester.
The one born in 1954 is on the ER to 2013 living in Gillingham with his wife and family

As we are unable to send you addresses by private message, search for them on 192.com and purchase credits to view the addresses. They do not appear to be listed in the BT phone book on-line. It's possible that the children of the son born in 1954 might have facebook accounts.

Although we have not been able to find further details of Patrick George Grant, his descendants may be able to assist you.

Isabella's death - again the informant might be a relative. Assuming the informant knew, it would give her marital status - widow, wife of etc.

Using the usual address, you ought to be able to track backwards and forwards on the historical ER. One hopes that they didn't move as historical ER can't be searched by name. No ER were compiled during WW2 1939-1945

Contact Medway Archives to see if they hold the historical ER - they may make a charge to look an address

I have news on Patrick George Henry Grant


SylviaInCanada Report 30 Jan 2021 21:53

Ruby .......

The problem is that this was a request made at the GR Booth at the Who Do You Think you Are show back in February 2014.

There appears to have been no further access by the requester, and we have no means of knowing who they were.

A dead end I'm afraid!


Ruby Report 12 Mar 2021 12:08

I am the daughter of Patrick George Grant any information would be very helpful
