Brian Robert Martin after 1946
« on: Sunday 13 January 19 22:20 GMT (UK) »
Trying to trace Brian Robert Martin after 1946. Born 12 Feb 1917 in Blackburn.

In 1939 he was a policeman in Nelson. He married and then had a son but disappeared in c1946.

Waiting to hear back from LRO about his police records, website shows he served 1937-1946.

I can find a possible death in Preston in 2011 but the registration doesn’t give exact DOB.

Anyone any other ideas where to look?

There is no other birth for that name between 1917-1919 so I think he is the one you are looking for

He should appear in online electoral registers probably until 2012. There is a possible match in Preston

I'm not sure where to look for the 2011 electoral role - where are you looking?

On Ancestry I can see a possible in 2003-4 in Great Harwood and then in Preston at 1 East Cliff in 2005-7.

www.192.com is one of several sites with the 2011 electoral register.

There is in FindMyPast an item headed "Preston Decrees" in the Lancashire Evening Post issue of 21st October 1954 which reports that:

"At Preston Divorce Court, today Mr Commissioner Maddocks granted a decree nisi, in [an] undefended case, to Brian Robert Martin, Lowthorpe Road Preston, desertion by Mary Martin"

Also in FindMyPast is a detailed report, from the Nelson Leader of 10th October 1941 of their marriage on 4th October at St Mary's Church in Nelson.

Slightly off topic...
I have a sub with Ancestry but not sure how to locate electoral registers as is mentioned in a previous reply. Can anyone enlighten me please?
Many thanks, Lancs lassie

Thank you so much for this - the divorce is something I didn't have. My subs on FindMyPast doesn't give me access to newspapers. Can you tell me is there is any more details on the divorce? If there are I will go and access at the library or Lancs record Office. My friend believed her grandfather left her grandmother but this reads that Mary left Brian - am I reading that correct???
