Somerset Electoral Roll look up
« on: Sunday 22 July 18 14:48 BST (UK) »
I'm asking this completely ignorant of how the Electoral Roles were organised for Bath in the early 20's but wondered if someone could look up either a William Rose or his wife Edith - married in 1920 - to find the address they were living in either in 1922 or 1939.

I'm trying to piece together the family of a Robert Rose who was killed in WW2 aboard a Motor Torpedo Boat and remembered in a tiny Leicestershire village where he was billetted. I now from his birth registration in 1922 that Robert was registered in the Bath District and his mothers maiden name was Miller which led me back to the 1920 marriage as it's the only one that fits the georgraphic/age puzzle.

I've tried searching the 1939 register, 1911 census and various Rose family trees without success. TIA

Sorry, it was indeed 1925.

It's strange you flag up Frome as I had noted an entry on the 1939 register for Edith Rose which had an additional entry for Emma Miller of a previous generation (my guess at the minute being mother) but was still investigating if Frome and Bath were conneced given they are only 16 miles apart. Thanks for the heads up.
