There was a post in 2017 about this person

Thanks Carole! It seems that that member has reached the same brickwall as me!

What was his occupation when he married or on the childs birth certificate.

Both of the service records that you mention refer to him only as Harry S(tanley) Slinger.

Mentioned in a will in 1927

I don't have any certificates for him as yet, and the only job role I have for him is from 1934 where he is a "Competition Specialist and Solutionist"......which to me sounds like he sets crossword puzzles.....

The contents of Liscarde House were auctioned off in October 1938. Emigration?

Great find, Shaun. Emigration makes sense. Just need to work out where they went!

Is there another daughter born 1933 in Hendon?

I think you might be right - on FreeBMD the MMN is listed as Huill, but I can't see a matching marriage.

Hi Hannahville!

Do you mean that his father died in 1894 or that JTA died in 1894?

I would appreciate another set(s) of eyes having a look and seeing if they can find Harry William Stanley Slinger after 1937.

He was born in 1896, Bootle and I have him on the 1901 census with his parents and sister https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:X92G-1T5 and also on the 1911 census https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XWTZ-FZK

I know he joined the Liverpool Regiment in WW1 before transferring to the RAF.

He married Lilian Hilda Haill in 1931 and had a daughter in 1936.

Electoral rolls show him and Lilian living at Liscarde House, The Gardens, Pinner up to 1937.  I have a mention of a partnership being dissolved in 1934 (his partner was Bror Ornolf Fleischer, a Norwegian who naturalised in 1940). Their trading name was "Ralph Plummer", which HWS Slinger seemed to continue to use post-1934

And then - nothing!

HWS Slinger has used his forenames in differing order, but even taking that into consideration I am struggling to find any trace of him (or his wife and daughter!) after 1937.  Any further leads would be gratefully received!

The family's surname has been incorrectly written on the census form by the enumerator and is listed as Atkin

Looks like Jane Moss had a sister called Barbra.

And looking at the birth index of THomas William Aitken (youngest sibling of Margaret's on the 1891 census) - his mmn is given as Moss

Margaret Jane Aitken (Mar qtr 1875) Durham 10 395 also has MMN as Moss
