Hi

Dates are almost as important as names!

FreeBMD at www.freebmd.org.uk has a birth of an Arthur S KOSKY, mmn LEVINE, Mar 1918 Hackney 1b 557.  Is this the birth of the Arthur who later became Arthur Stanley KAYE?

Anna :)

Answering my own question - it looks likely, because there's a later Kosky/Levine birth which seems to match what you have said about your grandfather. In case he's still living, I won't give more details here.


Anna

Yes that will be him.
Please post all details here, my grandfather Cyril passed away a few years ago.

Thanks

You can find him for free on the site I linked to - www.freebmd.org.uk.  He's there as Cyril B. Kosky, birth registered in the Mar 1925 quarter.

It looks also as though he died Dec 2001 Havering, Essex - death registered as Cyril Bertram Kosky born 17 Feb 1925.

Do you know when Joseph & Annie Kosky are likely to have died?

This is all correct , thanks.

I have no info about Joseph and Annie Kosky.

Could you help at all ?

Deaths would have probably been in London

I would recommend purchasing the 1917 marriage certificate, which will give you Joseph and Annie's ages, father's names, occupations, etc. Hopefully then we can identify them in earlier records. (There seem to be a number of marriages for Joseph Kosky, so hard to say if the 1897 birth is him).

http://www.gazettes-online.co.uk/ shows Arthur's name change, dated 8th April 1942 - Arthur Stanley Kaye, of "The Lodge", Marlow Road, East Ham, Essex, a natural born British subject, renounced and abandoned the name Kosky and assumed in lieu thereof the surname Kaye.

Interestingly enough, he does not appear to have been the only one to make the Kosky -> Kaye change.
