There is a chance of course, but I would say it is unlikely given the Irish neutral stance in the war.
I will check this out however, thanks for the suggestion.

Thanks for the suggestion, but he was living in Ireland until 1950 so he wouldn't have served in WW2

No, there weren't married, but he was cared for by his father. I also assume now he must have been registered under his mother's name.

Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a facility on the Scottish GRO site so search for 'Patrick's' born 3/3/17. I will call them this morning to see if they can be of any more help.

Thank you - yes I have that, that is indeed the Patrick Perkins I refer too. It's the birth cert is the holy grail!

Hi,

I am trying to trace the birth record of my great uncle Patrick Perkins, who I understand was born on 3 March 1917, in Scotland (likely Glasgow).

His father was Pierce Perkins, but the mother's name is unknown to me. The birth doesn't appear to be listed on nrscotland.gov.uk, not can I find it on findmypast.

Any suggestions as to how I can obtain the birth record or at least find out the mother's name?

Any help greatly appreciated!

Which 1939 Register are you referring to KathB?

Thank you Kathb.  I'm just surprised that a young girl from a rural family on the west of Ireland would be sent to a Convent school in England, as opposed to a local convent school.  My gut feel is that she was sent there to become a nun.

Hello, I found a relative of mine, Mary Hayes from Killaloe, Co. Clare, Ireland (born 1896), in the Convent of Mercy at 181 Anlaby Road, Hull in 1911 (aged only 15/16).  She was the only member of her family to have left home.  I'm trying to understand why she would have done this - was it to because she was singled out for better schooling than her siblings, was it because she was being schooled to be a Nun, or could it have been because she had fallen pregnant in the Ireland of the time? There are a lot of girls from Ireland in the school at the time, from near where she lived (Limerick, Tipperary) so maybe there was a link to the locality.

I think there was a workhouse too at 188 Anlaby Road, but I don't think this was a workhouse situation with Mary.

Any insights much appreciated!

I saw them on that 1891 census ok, but didn't go back as I'd been concentrating on the Irish Perkins mainly, and presumed they remained in Birmingham between 1841 and then.

That's great info on Thomas joining the army Shaun - where did you source that from can I ask? He would die aged 66 in Ireland, but not from epilepsy.
