Thank you Cas & keyboard86, I have subscribed for the survey now. I cant find Ernest still but as you say he may have been serving in the war.

In the past on the free bmd I saw a birth for Ernest Jones and one for Ernest Millington both in 1885 - I ordered both certs (its going back a few years). I was told there was only one actual register;


Date and Place of Birth: 13th August 1885, 24 Busk Street, Chadderton U.S.D
Name: Ernest Jones            Fathers name: George Jones
Mothers name: Sarah Jane Millington, now the wife of George Jones
Fathers Profession: Iron Planner      Reported on:   21st September 1885
Informant: George and Sarah Jones - parents, 1 Gower Street, Oldham

They couldn't tell me anymore - is it possible he was registered as Ernest Millington before this and then this was changed after the father became more committed?

Hi, he is on the 1939 same birthdate, with married sister Elizabeth, husband and their family.

Marriages Dec Q 1923 
James    Joseph   - Jones    Oldham    8d   987    
Jones    Elizabeth    - James    Oldham    8d   987    

Try searching in Oldham/Lancs area with birthdate, Ernest J Millington.

The 1939 is not a survey as such, but a register for all civilians alive pre/during WW2. Without registering people didn't receive identity cards or ration books, so it would have been difficult at the time to survive in Britain, if not in place on the 1939 register.

Hi, I know this is a long shot but Rootschat has really helped with difficult things in the past for me so I think its worth a go.

My grandad's Uncle Ernest Millington (born Ernest Jones) was apparently involved in an accident at a bomb disposal factory and, I'm told, lost his hand. I don't know what year this was other than it was after he married, June 1946 in Oldham and before he committed suicide in August 1951.

Mention of his suicide in the Oldham Chronicle is the only official mention I can find of the accident and only says 'Mrs Elizabeth James, of Waterloo Street, told the Coroner that her brother was troubled with blood pressure, and had never seemed to recover from an injury sustained at work'. The rest is just family heresay. One great Uncle once told me Ernest had worked in Exeter.

Thanks for your time!
Luke
