Let's hope the one in Kensington is willing to help.....and has some useful records.  Always worth asking I guess.

The synagogue is the Spanish & Portuguese synagogue, St Jamesí Gardens, Kensington. I think that is Sephardic.

Will work on an email but probably send it after their sabbath; will give me time to draft it with enough detail but not too much to overwhelm them.

Thanks sandiep;  it was not at Bevis Marks but one in Kensington. I visited Bevis Marks many years ago; a beautiful building but now threated by a possible development nearby. :(

I am uncertain if they are still alive;  he born 1936 and she born 1933....if her marriage certificates are correct.  I know his birth year is correct.

Thank you for the link.

The Common Room / Help from a Synagogue?

Has anyone contacted a synagogue for help and been answered?  I'm researching my late mum's cousin who married his second wife firstly in a London Register Office and then, 21 years later, they married in a Sephardic synagogue in London.  Both had been previously married; his name too common for me to find his first marriage and hers only appears once....when they marry the first time!

I'm assuming the man converted as his unmarried grandparents were Ashkenazi father and Christian mother.   Would a synagogue hold records of his conversion or any other family details about them?

This should help you to find out how to apply for his service record;  it is not available online......don't waste your money!

Visiting my in-laws in Yorkshire in 1970s, reading the local newspaper and many death announcements had "men only" funerals.

It might be that the notice was placed by someone who only knew her late husband as John;  for decades I thought my godfather was called Frank and I only found about a few years ago that his "official" name was Peter!

There is an Elizabeth J Banyard (born 1910) shown on 1939 Register living in Hillingdon, Middlesex which is not too far from Denham.

I know the area well; lived there for many years!
