Parfitt family Coventry
« on: Friday 02 June 17 22:59 BST (UK) »
Looking to trace the Parfitt family from Coventry

James CE Parfitt (1875-1953)
Alice Parfitt née Guerins (1890-1960)
Sons:
James Lewis Parfitt born 1918
Joseph Parfitt born 1929 - FindMyPast suggests a marriage to Glenda Thompson in 1958 but I haven't ordered this yet.

I found the parents on the 1939 Register but the other records are closed.
Dublin, Limerick, Carlow, Waterford, Wicklow, Pembrokeshire

Joseph is born Joseph G Parfitt - any idea on the 'G'?

The younger son could still be alive - no death found.  My sister was born in 1929 and my aunt in 1928 - both still living so his details cannot be shown as Rootschat has a no living persons policy

No - not unless they went with his mother's maiden name as a middle.

Lewis James was named for her brother who died young. She also had a brother called Joseph but no other G names in her family.

Fair enough: I had looked for a death and not found one, but of course he could have moved from Coventry.

Thanks again.
I'll order that marriage cert to make sure I'm on the right track.
