Good call Rosie, I think his daughter married in Canterbury.
I did get an impression that George's involvement in the world of bodybuilding might stretch back so far that he could have been older than was suggested.

Handson - May I suggest that you get two certificates?

George's birth certificate ref. details as shown below:-

Births Dec 1921   
Greenwood    George E    Hunt    Luton    3b   609

George's marriage certificate ref. details as shown below:-

Marriages Dec 1939   
Greenwood    George E    Moon    Thanet    2a   5392    
Moon    Joan M    Greenwood    Thanet    2a   5392

You can then check whether the E name is the same on both certificates and also the father's name. 

He must have married young!  Just 18!  If this is the right one  ::)

The birth and marriage Georges could be two different people.   ::)

I have just come to the exact same conclusion myself i.e. that the George E. Greenwood married to Joan M. Moon in 1939 was the George Ernest Greenwood born 5/8/1917 (mmn Hales) in Thanet, died Sept.qtr.1983 Canterbury.  The burial details would seem to confirm it.

On the 1939 register Herbert and Ellen show with two closed records.  That would imply that George is still alive or that FindMyPast have not yet got round to opening it.

If George is still alive he will be in his nineties.

I think that the burial data are a clincher.

Good work everyone.

Strange that the Thanet George doesn't seem to be on the 1939 Register either-yet we know he has passed on.

If as you mentioned he was in the RAF he probably would not be on the 1939 register as it was for Civilians only
