Maurice Morgan - Mystery of death certificate - Uxbridge
« on: Wednesday 13 December 17 22:12 GMT (UK) »
Hello.

I am searching for a death certificate for Maurice Morgan born 1875 (PDF on the way, so I will have birth date in next few days).

There are two births in Uxbridge. One in 1875 (mine - hopefully!) and 1877 (shows linked as deceased 1912 and there is a death certificate available). Thanks to the new GRO tool I narrowed down the birth certificate order to the 1875 one as it had the maiden name on my current research.

The issue is that on the marriage certificate for son of Maurice Morgan it lists father but doesn't look like it says Maurice Morgan. I am awaiting the birth certificate of son to see if it lists differently - as I cannot find one in my storage, I'm sure it said Maurice but I'm trying to verify all my data from the beginning. There is mention on my notes of there being a nick name of Jesse, I cannot see any verification of this.

Maurice Morgan son Llewellyn Morgan (born 1917) is listed on the 1939 register with Alice Ethel Morgan and Jack Maurice Morgan. The 1911 census show Jack and (Alice) Ethel with Maurice. Same address as the marriage certificate of Llewellyn Morgan. I have a scan of this.

However there Alice has a birth date in 1882 and not 1880 like the matching birth certificate says (PDF on the way too, to confirm if same day, month maybe?).

In summary my aim is to find a death certificate? Is it possible it has been missed off the index?

The 1912 death does look a possible - there's a Morris Morgan  in the uxbridge district on electoral registers up to 1912 (but not after)at the same address as Alice ethel and children on later registers.

If he did die in 1912, Llywelyn's father can;t be Maurice, and is possibly fudged on the marriage cert to hid the issue.

Oh, right.

I've actually just now found the birth certificate, it was uploaded already on a tree but not on my local storage. It clearly looks the same father name as marriage certificate. But not Maurice.

Thank you. That would match up to his parents I have previously on other records.

I'm trying to verify that I have the correct Maurice.
