1939 census
« on: Sunday 27 May 18 15:51 BST (UK) »
As I don't have access to the 1939 census yet I was wondering if anyone could please find out where my Great Uncle was then.
His name was Frederick Weymouth Matthews born 1891 in Birmingham area. He died in Southend on Sea in 1977 but after 1911 when he was in Cardiff with his brothers I have no knowledge and cannot find a marriage either and was hoping the 1939 census may give me something to work on.
Thanks

You can access for free at most public libraries when they re-open.

IF he is on the register, then he doesn't appear to have used his full name.

Death gives date of birth as 9 Aug 1891. 

It is possible to search the 1939 register without a subscription to FindMyPast or Ancestry.  As it is not a census it does not give place of birth but does have date of birth.

Thanks JJen

From that post

I also found out last week that on the 1939 census he was in Enfield in Middlesex but the shock is it mentions he was married. Now her name is NOT on this census and he died alone (he has no headstone) so what I want to know is 1. When did he arrive in Southend. 2, What was his wifes name and did she come to Southend with him or not? & 3. anything that may help me track his timeline etc and if there are other family here

Thank you Julie
