Warwickshire Joseph Phillips
« on: Sunday 15 March 15 12:52 GMT (UK) »
I am Looking for any information on Joseph Phillips born in Birmingham Warwickshire 1868?.
On the 1901 Census he was on Weaver's square Leeds as a Hawker of flowers with Edith Phillips (nee Frisby)

I have found no Married for them as it says on the 1911 census they had been married for 11 years
Also Joseph's Death certificate says he was 85 years old (1868) in Bradford but on the census it says he was born in 1875 in Birmingham, making him 78.

He played the Banjo in theatres and was part of the 8 Lancashire Lads with Charlie Chaplin.

He had many Jobs in his life.
1901 Hawker flowers(Leeds), 1911 Joiner, 1914-1918(Bradford) Munition works Bradford,1920 General Dealer(Bradford),1928-1938 Ice vendor/Manufacture (Bradford) ,1943 Firewatcher (Bradford).

Does anyone have any other deatils on Joseph Phillips?

Hi and welcome to Rootschat

The 1901 entry shows his birthyear as 1875 and Edith's as 1880 Huddersfield

This is probably her birth reg

Births June qtr 1879 
Edith Campbell Frisby     Huddersfield    9a   382

I can't see a marriage either

 Hi Carolew
Thank you for your Information.
I was able to Trace Edith Phillips (nee Frisby) as my dad had her Birth certificate.

I think Joseph Phillips not tell the truth on the census because on the 1911 census he was still has his year of birth as 1875.
Maybe he was hiding something ?

Thanks again
