« on: Wednesday 28 November 18 21:22 GMT (UK) »
I canít for the life of me fine John McPherson on the Gro register,Iíve searched all the possible dates for the the info below. 
I have his baptism which has his birth being 28 Aug 1860
I have 1861 Census which shows him as 7 months.
1871 census has him being 13
1881 census has him being 20
1891 census I have him 30 
Additional Details:
mother:Prudence Tartlin 1832-1901

Father: Charles McPherson 1834-1908

Siblings: Charles-1853, Frederick-1855, Elizabeth-1858, Sarah-1865, Walter-1867, Maria-1870, Prudence-1863, Charles-1872

Any suggestions as to why he wouldnít be showing up on the gro website?

Were any of his siblings registered? Have you looked for surname variations?

Maybe he could have been registered as James, I didnít even think to look as first name variation. I did look as second name and motherís maiden name variation. Totally forgot about first names. Thank you both for your help :)
