John Allen/Boloslaw Sienkiewicz
« on: Tuesday 11 June 19 19:27 BST (UK) »
Does anyone have any information regarding the above gentleman? He was born in  Poland in 1925 and came to Scotland to join the Polish Army. He met and married Mary Gunning in 1947 and became a naturalized British citizen .They had 2 daughters and later separated and he move to Goole. Posting this for his daughter Irene who wondered what became of her dad as she has not seen him since she was 10. Any info would be great. Thank you in advance.

There is a possible re-marriage under his birth name in 1973.

That won't be proved unless you compare that marriage cert with the one issued in 1947 eg age and fathers names.

The name he chose after naturalization is quite frequently occuring, so to find his death in the death index (as that is a possibilty being born in 1925) what is his full date of birth?

There are some links here that might be useful especially the Polish Section at RAF Northolt, where 7 Polish squadrons were based during WW2

Hi Alexanderina

There aren't any obvious matches in the death index online upto 2007.

I can check the death index after 2007 at the British Library next week.

If you haven't done so already, please consider purchasing the 1973 marriage certificate for more information. It should give an address in 1973 which could be checked against electoral registers 1973 onwards if not for him, then his next wife.
