Henry Owens also known as Jake Kilrain Scottish Boxer
« on: Saturday 31 October 15 13:24 GMT (UK) »
Looking for information on Henry Owens born 29th May 1914, Bothwell, Lanarkshire Scotland who was a well known Scottish Boxer and fought under the name of Jake Kilrain.  He married Nora Gallagher 8th July 1937 in Scotland.  I am looking for his death certificate and have searched Scotland's People but can find one.  Possible he left Scotland and moved further afield.  Can anyone help find a death certificate?

I am not related to Jake Kilrain but my Aunt was writing a story about him.  My grandfather did a portrait painting on the boxer in the 1900s and we were interested to know of its whereabouts.  I remember the painting from my childhood and it was given to a relation of Jakes family by my father.

Hi Annie, thank you for your prompt reply,
I was looking to trace his family as I have a piece of boxing history regarding Jake,
Do you know if his family are still in Scotland?

Wish I could help you but I had no reply from any of his family.  The only person who was able to help us  was a gentleman called Miles Templeton  who is a boxing historian and knew quite a lot about Jake and he me be able to help you.  Do you mind me asking what it is you have?
