Hi

There are 5 children showing as born to the marriage between 1936 and 1948.  Are any still alive who could answer your query?

You have to buy a copy of the cert to get his exact death date and also his address at that time as here are all the areas covered by the Grimsby RD

Hi CaroleW,
thanks for your response, im a afraid no one i can ask,I am not in touch with my father or whats left of his kin that are alive,  also i have only 4 births to his marriage,and unfortunatly i never knew my grandad Dennis,i was always told he died before i was born,i am assuming the marriage broke down and he moved to grimsby since finding out he died their, and was not aware he died in Grimsby till i started researching this side of my tree, hence i was hoping someone on here would be able to help me trace where he his buried/cremated.
many thanks

If you check on the 1939 register there is a Dennis Storrs living in Scunthorpe with his wife. His exact date of birth is given ( I'm afraid we can't give information on here.) If that is the correct one and you then buy the death certificate, it should have the date of birth on it so you will know if it is him. As Carole said, I'm afraid there is probably no other way of finding out accept by buying the certificate. The registry office wont give you the information unless you do.

and you then buy the death certificate, it should have the date of birth on it

Birthdates only appeared on death certs from 1969
