Hi,

Welcome to RootsChat

Presumably this person is deceased (We cannot name living people on this site) ?  What sort of age do you think he would be ? Probably a few schools under the name Solent Middle School - which one are you referring to  ??? Any middle name ? Can you remember the name of his wife ?

It's the only one on the Isle of Wight Sandra.  ;) All middle schools on the Island closed when they changed to the Primary and Secondary system in 2011.

Yes groom, I re-read and picked that up - thanks  ;) (and the reference to age - now put my specs on  ;))  Saw one listed for Baring Road, Cowes, Hampshire PO31 8DS

That's the one. I thought they might still have a website where Barnett could post for information, but I can't find one.

There are lots of people in their 90's who are fully alive -  if you can give a birth year it would help to track him down.

(Or his parents names so we can try to track birth down)

Could his birth have been in Camberwell in 1918, with 'W' as a middle name?

If that's him, it looks as if he had at least 6 siblings.
