Havard brick wall.
« on: Wednesday 22 November 17 17:06 GMT (UK) »
Can someone help if possible?
I have an Alfred Havard marrying Emily E. Handley in June period 1915 in Kingsbury, Staffs but not sure of his age. Two possibilities, one born in Gloucestershire in 1887 and another in Herefordshire in 1890. I cannot find either in the 1911. Is it a case of me having a 'senior moment'? Not sure but if anyone can perhaps point me on the right road it would be most appreciated.

Buying a copy of the marriage cert will give his age and his fathers name.

I know that but to save time I thought a request on here may help as I have helped others similarly in the past..

No worries - Tamworth itself couldn't make up it's mind whether it was Warwickshire or Staffordshire  ;D
