Title: Alfred BUTCHER, Strood.
Post by: Bilge on Friday 09 July 10 22:40 BST (UK)
I am looking for Alfred BUTCHER, born abt. 1901, Kent. Father George BUTCHER, I think they lived in Charles Street, Strood.

Alfred married Daisy Lowery, in abt.1930 in Strood.

I am led to believe that Alfred was employed as a dockyard worker possibly a rigger.

Any help or pointers welcome.

Thank You

John.

According to freebmd he was born after the 1901 census so you will need to look for him in 1911 to get further details of the family

USING THE FREE 1911 INDEX

http://www.1911census.co.uk/search/tnaform.aspx

Once you find the right person - make a note of the county and district in which they were living

Return to the index and in PERSONAL DETAILS - just put the surname of the family - nothing else

In LOCATION - Select the county and below it - type in the district

In OTHER MEMBERS OF THE HOUSEHOLD - show the full name of the person you have found on the index

Are you sure that you have the right family in 1911. His father is given as George when Alfred married in 1930.

Think you will find he is the one with George and Maria Lyfelly BUTCHER as parents in Strood. His name is spelt as Alfrid, with four other siblings.

George BUTCHER married Maria Lyfolly MARSH, Sep qtr 1887 at Strood, and they were in Strood in 1901 census.

George and Maria are my great grandparents, I've arrived today in Rochester to do some family research - am planning to visit Charles Street and Alma Place (where they lived) and St Nicholas church where they were married on 24 September 1887.
