I think only the full birth certificate will solve it or maybe his marriage in 1934  ;D

Many thanks for the lookups,  I think I will invest in some certificates.
My Mother told me that she visited as a young girl some cousins that lived towards Brighton,  they had a laundry business but could not remember who they where.

I have checked my database and have never resolved the parents of Alfred.

I do have that he most probably married Margorie Gray

His full name on the registration is Alfred Stephen George Cooper (though presumably that is already known if a birth certificate is in hand).

I would suggest looking for him in the 1939 Register - playing with the free search suggests he may have his mother Kate and wife Margery with him.  We can't post details here though.

Thanks Rob.  I am tracing the Gray Line!!!  We didn't know Marjorie married twice, Alfred being the first.  We can't find a death for him so we were wondering what happened.  Why did your mum have the certificate, maybe we have a very thin link!!!

Did Marjorie Gray have a child either with Alfred or before marrying him? If you access the 1939 Register it is always worth seeing whether there is a redacted member of the household.

Also, FreeBMD shows a possible Cooper/Gray daughter born in Worthing district in 1943 (who obviously would not appear in 1939).

I see that Marjorie went on to marry Frederick Lawson in Worthing district in 1947.

Wow, thank you for info.  Don't usually use FreeBMD but will have a look.  We don't know if marj and Alfred had any children , but may be we do now.  We only knew about Fred Lawson so any cooper/gray children are going to be a bonus.

Thanks for all you help.
