Harry Peake Birth records \parents
« on: Friday 24 November 17 16:58 GMT (UK) »
I am having problems searching for Harry Peake's parents details.
 He married Martha Handley (prev Watts) in Birmingham in 1922.They were both living at 6 Burbury Street,Birmingham when they married.She was a widow.
 I have his Wedding Cert which says he is 46yrs old the same as his wife.
Martha was born in 1877.
It says his Dad was John Peake who is deceased at this time.
I am having trouble finding him on thr GRO website.
I am presuming he is from the Birmingham \Midlands area.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thankyou
Marytm.

One other bit of info I have is that Harry Peake was a "Motor Driver" when he married.
But it doesn't have an occupation for his deceased Father.

And a tree on Ancestry has him born in 1880 - no sign of parentage on that tree.  :'(

Could that tree be showing the death 1945 Birmingham 6d 109 aged 65?

There is a burial for a Harry Peake in 1945 at Witton Cemetery, Birmingham.

This gives a birth year of 1880 so may not be your Harry

Death shown on the tree is 1947 with no further information - very little shown on this tree.   Children from a previous marriage for Martha, but then "Private" for a child born to Harry/Martha.
