Henry John LEE 1879 to 1901 now where are you?
« on: Tuesday 21 November 17 15:19 GMT (UK) »
For the umpteenth time now I have downloaded the WRONG death certificate for Henry LEE last mentioned on his wife's death certificate after the 1901 census at Islington. He was born Henry John LEE to parents John and Julia LEE on the 13th April 1879 and registered at Tottenham Registry.
 I cannot find him in 1911 with any certainty, nor in the 1939 Identity Registration, nor the most obvious casualties from WW1, passenger lists etc. So I am gradually eliminating the usual suspects should I change tactics ?
Can anyone come forward with some fresh ideas? apart from waiting for the 1921 census to come online should I last out that long.
cheers
Bob

If his parents are alive in 1911 you could check number of children who have died to see if he is still alive at that point.

So he must have married young if he was widowed in 1901 - how old was his wife when she died?

Unfortunately no his wife died during childbirth, the baby it seems lived long enough to be named and both deaths are registered on the same volume and page number

Yes that was one of the first "wrong" certificates I bought. A reminder to myself to record the cert details on a Freebmd Postit note that one must belong to someone somewhere!
