Your other post re Nellies husband was doubting whether the information Nellie gave for her father was right as they both had the same names.  Have you found Nellies birth.

I know from the marriage certificate that Nellie was 24 yrs in 1930 so born 1906 ,but where. Also in everyone’s memory she was known as Nellie May. But in her marriage certificate she is entered as Nellie Doris.Somtime also known as Nora No Idea why. A great built brick wall in my research. Eirwen.

The marriage in 1930 was between Ernest George. Hersey (son of Henry ). And a Nellie. Doris Hooper (daughter of Henry James Hooper). The witnesses are I believe. a Thomas Honycombe and a xxx Holloway. , ( writing hard to read) The death entry is correct , but the problem is in the marriage it is Nellie DORIS Hooper and in the death Nellie May Hooper.  WHY.  Nellie May was born 1906. Have not located where yet Her father Henry James. Hooper was desceased by the time of the marriage.There is If course the possibility that the marriage might be of a different HOOPER and HERSEY. As you can see Henry James Hooper’s records are becoming very difficult to obtain. Regards Eirwen

Thankyou for Nellie’s birth date. May I ask where did you locate it. By chance does it say where Nellie was born. Regards Eirwen

The 1939 register does not include place of birth. You can access it via the findmypast website. This article tells you more about it; https://www.findmypast.co.uk/1939register/what-is-the-1939-register
