Thanks everyone for replying.  I don't think the Liverpool death record is for the John I'm looking for as his father was William and not Thomas  The informant was Ann and there was a daughter of his called Mary Ann, so a possible BUT it's his occupation that doesn't tally.  I'll check the 1871 Census you sent Rosie.  Thanks
Mary Roberts and John got married on 8th May 1842  It has been mis transcribed as Possetthwaite!
The children are found in the parish records e.g Edwin John 1851 Clerkenwell

Hello Everyone
I'm trying to find where John Postlethwaite was in 1871, if he was still alive and, if not, when he died.  This is what I already know:  Born 1814 Crossthwaite, Cumberland.  Parents: William P and Ann Lingey (Lindsey? several different spellings)  Wife, Mary Ann Roberts (m.1842) and 4 children. I have records up to 1861 where his last known occupation is a Turnkey in a House of Correction
Previous to this, he was a Private in the 2nd Life Guards in 1835 and in 1842 is recorded as being a Corporal (Paddington)  He was discharged in 1843 for health reasons. Census in 1851 and 1861 shows him as working as an Officer in a House of Correction in Clerkenwell. Haven't found anything concrete after this. There is a death record for a John Postlethwaite in 1875 in Southwark, St Saviour but he is described as a gentleman by his daughter.  Not sure about this.  Thanks

All I know is what's written on the 1911 Census and no more.  It would have been a lot easier if I'd known Arthur's parents, Edith's maiden name, where they were married etc etc but, unfortunately, I don't  :(

Ok Thanks Ray  Yes, it can be very unreliable, I know, but that's all the information that was given to me.  Very scant but worth a go!

Thanks Ladyhawk.  Still working through earlier information you sent!  Have eliminated a few families who were possible parents of Harry Bird
1911 Census address is 4 Rochester Square  I can find no electoral rolls (1900 onwards for Arthur Douglas or Edith
Thanks for all this research

Hello Lizzie   Harry could be Edith's nephew, her sister may have married a Bird but, again I would prob need to know the name of Edith's/her sister's maiden name which takes me back to a marriage between Arthur Douglas and Edith.  I've looked at all marriages between an Arthur Douglas and Edith ? around 1900 in Birmingham and London

Yes, that's right Rosie.  All I have to go on is the 1911 Census that shows Arthur, Edith and Harry living in the same household
