James B. Cocksedge Family Members
« on: Friday 18 August 17 04:11 BST (UK) »
My grandfather was James B. Cocksedge...Don't know/remember much about him or his siblings...He was born in 1898...and the greatest person I have ever known (in our short time together).

...Can anyone fill in some of the blanks? I do know there was quite a few Brothers and sisters...in England...

There is a record of James going to New York in 1938.

I see James is on the 1930 census for the US at Glendale, Los Angeles, California.  His occupation appears to be tile setter.

There are quite a number of records for James on the Immigration & Travel section of Ancestry.  If you have a sub to Ancestry you can look at them for yourself.

Did James marry late as there is a marriage for a James Cocksedge in the June Quarter of 1956, registration district Wharfedale.

This popped up on an Internet search of his name. I'm assuming the 'B' is for Barber.

If the 1930 is correct and he was a tile setter, then this is possibly him as a boarder with Emily L Clark, widow aged 53 and son James W aged 17 in 1940. James is single aged 42:
