Thanks maiden story ... The Samuel Burke I'm looking for did indeed go to Canada 1928 and returned that year. My grandparents where split up during this time. My grandfather is the one born  18  August 1906. His parents where John James Burke and Rebecca king. Siblings elizabeth, John (died when he was one). Rebecca, Annie Hamilton, Mabel and violet ( died at one also) . Samuel was the youngest in the. 1911 cencus. His mum died 1929 and his dad died 1932 . The reason I believe he went to Canada around 1935 is my mum was born 1931 and her parents split up again for good in 1933 . So it is believed he went back to Canada as he was there previously

Hi keyboard ... I'm not sure on the smith. It was just told to a family member that it could have been significant.... Thanks for your information. He could have went to England .... His date of birth was definitely 1906.  Did the Samuel Burke that married in England come from Derry northern Ireland .....in the wedding does it name his father ?

Hi the wedding was in Preston, Register Office or Registrar attended, the 18th August 1908 in 1939, I have recently assisted on two threads where the year of birth, has been incorrect, wish I could offer more help, but that marriage certificate if purchased, will not tell you if he is from Derry, but will give you the name of his father and his occupation?

PS re the death, the 25th August 1906 could it have been his baptism?

Thank you keyboard 86 and maiden stone... Maiden stone that is indeed his birth and his dads name. His mum was Rebecca king . They went on then to live in Henry Street, Derry . Yes keyboard86 that date could have been his baptism....  I must check and see how to buy the marriage cert... It could well be him...
Dillnet check out keyboard86 comments..... We may be getting closer

Or the LRO at Preston.
 See  http://www.lancashirebmd.org.uk
It usually provides a photocopy of original register entry with genuine signatures of participants.
Samuel Burke may have been on the 1939 Register in the Preston area.

He is, just put in Samuel Burke no year of birth in Lancashire
Often wondered about cost via LancsBMD is it comparable to GRO?
