Joseph W Harrison from Bingham
« on: Thursday 23 June 16 21:57 BST (UK) »
I'm trying to trace my ggrandad, Joseph W (William?) Harrison. I know he was married twice - first to Ellen Emma Warrington on 25 October 1930, then to Carrie Taylor in September 1955. I can't find anything on his birth or death (I think this was 1990). Any ideas? I think he was from Bingham, as my nan was born in Bingham - I've asked her for info, but she's not telling me anything!! She 'thinks' he was born on 1 January, but can't/won't tell me the year, and doesn't know the location. If anyone has any info on Joseph Harrison, I'd love to hear it - I think his parents were George Henry Harrison and Maud, but I'm not certain and could be totally wrong!

A copy of his 1930 marriage cert would give you his full middle name plus his age and also his fathers name and occupation

Joseph W Harrison/ Ellen E Warrington  December qtr 1930 Bingham   7b   1225

You can order online at www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/certificates/  and copies cost 9.25

Did he die in Nottingham or elsewhere.  I see the 1955 marriage was in Leicestershire

If that is his death - this could be his birth reg

Births March qtr 1908 

Joseph William Harrison Bingham    7b   553

And there is a 1911 entry with parents you mention above.  You would have to view that entry yourself as 1911 lookups are not allowed

Thanks all - it all sounds very promising so I'll do some digging! I don't know where he died but Leicestershire is certainly a possibility - most of the family is Leics/Notts based, so it would fit. I'll order the marriage cert - thanks for the info!!
