George E Greenwood Born Luton 1921 -Where, When Did He Die?
« on: Sunday 03 February 19 09:49 GMT (UK) »
George E. Greenwood was born in Luton in 1921 the son of Herbert Arthur Barnet Greenwood (b. 23 July 1888) & Ellen Greenwood (nee Hunt) who married in September 1909.

George E. Greenwood married Joan M. Moon in Thanet in December 1939.

George's mother is down as Hunt on his birth certificate which fits with his parents.

George & Joan had two children (*)

The peripatetic pair had the son in Lichfield and the daughter in Battersea.

George E and Joan M Greenwood were living in Cheam according to electoral rolls of the 1960s and 1970s.

It is thought that George E Greenwood died aged about 62 in around 1983 but try as I might I cannot find any trace of his death. Help!

His actual birth date would also help.

'It is thought that George E Greenwood died aged about 62 in around 1983'

have you got any evidence for this, or could he still be alive as he would be less than 100?

Q1 O.K. should have said birth details as per Freebmd.
Q2 I only know his birth was Q4 Dec 1921
Q3 George E Greenwood was the Editor of the fitness magazine 'Health & Strength' for some time in the 1970s and aquaintances of his have said he died around 1983 from a heart attack.

Have you looked for him in the 1939 Register?  If he died in this country before the 1990s then his entry should be unredacted.  If so it would give you his exact birthdate.

His children are of an age to be alive - if they are living their details shouldn’t be published on the thread.

Facebook for the magazine -

https://en-gb.facebook.com/healthandstrengthmagazine/

Perhaps you could post details of your question on there but omit any living persons.

Looking at FreeBMD George and Joan had one boy and two girls. These girls can be found living with their parents in 1970, Cheam.
