Harry Beaumont
« on: Friday 29 January 16 12:53 GMT (UK) »
Good Afternoon,

I have a brick wall my tree regarding Harry Beaumont - the only information I have is that he married a divorcee called Doreen Dudley (maiden name Swift) in 1956 Dewsbury. Family info is that at some point he left her to join up with some militia group, and disappeared. Doreen is then said to have had him declared deceased so she could later re-marry. Any help on where to start would be most gratefully received.

Regards Moo

The only place to start as far as I can see with such limited information - I cannot even begin to guess how many Harry Beaumonts there are  in Yorkshire  ;) - is to get the marriage certificate
Marriages Mar 1956
Beaumont    Harry    Dudley    Dewsbury    2b   828   
Dudley    Doreen    Beaumont    Dewsbury    2b   828    

9.25 from GRO online. From there you will see his age, address & father's name & occupation then may be able to trace his birth from baptisms [which may show mother's name & then you may get his parents' marriage certificate & then back to the censuses] & family from electoral rolls etc.

You can try local archives for newspaper reports, but it is probably too recent to feature in online archives, as will any military records.

OK, thanks. It seems your Harry may possibly still be alive; you probably know that rootschat have a policy of not mentioning the names in that case. I suggest that anyone with information regarding him contacts you by personal message [pm].

Knowing his father's name will make it possible to trace his family back, but I am not sure this is your interest?

Here's Joseph's marriage
Name:   Joseph Dent Beaumont
Birth Year:   abt 1908
Marriage or Bann Date:   13 Apr 1929
Spouse:   Hilda Tennings [should be Jennings]
Father:   Harry Beaumont
Spouse Father:   Albert Edward Tennings

so the birth you are interested in
Births Mar 1930   
Beaumont    Male [I have removed name] Mother's maiden name  Jennings    Dewsbury    9b   750
Meaning your man was probably born between late December 1929 & 31 Mar 1930 - possibly the 2001 death in reply #5.
