Harry K Wills (1894?)
« on: Tuesday 24 April 18 16:29 BST (UK) »
Please can anyone find a BMD or christening record for Harry K Wills. He appears on 1901 and 1911 census returns as the son of Tom Wills and Phoebe Helen Profitt of St Minver with ages of 7 and 17 respectively. He further appears to marry Rosetta Richards, Bodmin, Jun 1930 and may be the Harry Wills who died at St Austell in 1934.

Both BMD and christening records exist for his three siblings but I can find nothing at all for Harry. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Keith,

Harry's Service record has his name as Henry Knight Wills. Have you tried looking for that name?

Looks as though he's transcribed on the 1939 register as Ham K WELLS /Wadebridge RD.
