Completed OWEN, kenneth Cedric - Death
« on: Friday 25 July 14 01:59 BST (UK) »
I just received the death certificate for Kenneth Cedric OWEN (B:1 Feb 1931  D: 16 Apr 1949) who died Nottingham and lived at 43 Kings Meadow Road.  The informant, his father is listed as W.G. OWEN of 43 Kings Meadow Road, Nottingham.  If I have the correct person, his mother should be Florence OWEN (Nee KELLY) and his brother would be Ronald George OWEN (B: 1928) and possible (not conformed) two other sibling - Pauline (B: 1943) and Reginald (B: 1939).  Would there be an obituary that would tie Kenneth Cedric to Florence OWEN (Nee KELLY) or to his brother Ronald George to confirm that I have the correct person.  Any help in connecting these individuals greatly appreciated.  Thank you.

Pauline M Owen 1936 has mother's maiden name Smith
Could not find Reginald Owen 1939. There was a Reginald in 1929 in Birkenhead, but his mother was Mermelstein.

What makes you think that the four were siblings? Perhaps they were cousins.

There is a death notice in the Nottingham Post, 18 Apr 1949:
"OWEN.—April 16th. Kenneth Cedric, aged 18, passed away at City Hospital after much suffering. Funeral Thursday, 11 a.m., at Wilford Hill, beloved son of Florrie and George, loved brother of Ron, Freda and Reg."

It can be viewed (requires credits) on The British Newspaper Archive or FindMyPast.

Thanks to all for their input.  Greatly appreciated.  I have birth certificates for Kenneth Cedric and Ronald C Owen.  I now have a death cert for Kenneth C. Owen.  I have no concrete knowledge that Pauline or Reginald are children of Florence (nee Kelly) and Ronald George OWEN.  I based their connection on the fact that mother is stated as KELLY in births for Pauline - Jun 1943 - Nottingham 7a 408 and Reginald N Jun 1939 Nottingham 7b 408.  Florence Owen (nee Kelly) half brother is Reginald DOWNEY and one of her brothers was Norman KELLY (B: 1097 D: 1967).  The quoted obit for Kenneth C. looks like the right one based on Florrie and George as parents with brother Ronald.  It looks like Florence and William George OWEN moved from Birkenhead sometime after 1931 and perhaps before the mid to late 1930s.  I have ordered a death certificate for Florence OWEN (Nee Kelly) age 55 Nottingham 3c 300 Sep 1960.  Hopefully the right one.  Thanks again for input.
