A missing Grosvenor
« on: Saturday 15 April 06 21:25 BST (UK) »
I canít find my gt-grandfatherís brother on the 1901 Census.†
Heís listed on the 1891 Census, but after that, I canít trace him.†

I'm looking for:
Joseph Grosvenor (spelt Grovenor on 1891 census)
Born about 1876 in Cradley Heath (which is under Staffordshire on 1891 census page), son of Samuel and Hannah Grosvenor, living at 48 Providence Street, Cradley Heath, Rowley Regis.

My late gt-aunt said he was married (canít find that either) to a woman called Lavinia.†
I suspect Joseph may have died as she later married his brother Isaac, unless they divorced?† I havenít ruled out a death in WW1 either, but I canít find anything.

Iíve checked deaths from 1891 to 1901 and canít find anything, unless Iíve missed it.
According to my gt-aunt, Joseph and Lavinia had a son, Alfred.

There is a Joseph Grosvenor aged 24 on the 1901 census, but itís not the one Iím looking for.

Itís all a bit confusing! Could anyone suggest where I may go from here?† Iíd be grateful for any help or suggestions.

In checking GRO records, which resource did you use? transcribed records OR original images.

It can be easy to miss someone trying to do it that way

Hi Amanda,

Westmidlands BMD http://www.bmsgh.org/wmbmd/
has a marriage in 1919 at Dudley St Andrew for a Joseph Grosvenor to a Lavinia Cresswell

... and a marriage of Lavinina Grosvenor to Isaac Grosvenor in 1942.

Any good?

Hiya,

Pauline - I'd been using 1837online, but judging by the other reply I've had, I hadn't looked far enough.
I had also looked on the 1901 Census site but couldn't find him.
Many thanks

Tanja - this has to be the one!  I hadn't looked far enough, as I was given some incorrect dates.  This has solved a very frustrating puzzle - very much appreciated.

Thank you both for replying!
All the best
Amanda
