Title: Trying to find death of John Dyke.
Post by: SamnJoan on Tuesday 21 March 17 10:11 GMT (UK)
I can't find the death of John Dyke, altho' I believe it was around 1939.
bc1865 he was baptised 29.01.1865 in Liverpool to parents Harry William Dyke and Elizabeth Cosgrove.
1898 m Mary Harriet (May) Harries (1874-1970) in Birkenhead.   They had two daughters: Kathleen (Kitty) Mary 1899-1982, and Elizabeth Olga 1901-1979.
I have the family in Liscard, Cheshire on the 1901 census, but can find no mention of them on the 1911 census.   I believe the family remained in Cheshire.
The last record I have of John Dyke was a trip to the US in 1911.   He was a cotton merchant.
Can anyone help please?

If this is him he should be on the 1939 register  :)

His wife's birthdate is given as 3 May 1874 on her death registration (as Harriett Mary Dyke, Jun qtr 1970 Wirral).

These details may help you find them in the 1939 Register.

Hi rosie99 and avm228

Thankyou both for your quick replies.

That sounds like the John Dyke I am looking for.   Thankyou.

I can confirm that Mary Harriet (May) Dyke was born 3.5.1874.   Not the first time that Christian names have been moved around in this family!

Strange that the family have disappeared from the 1911 census!

Many thanks Maureen.   That explains why I couldn't find them.
