Joseph Robert Brierley
« on: Thursday 27 August 20 10:22 BST (UK) »
Looking for information on Joseph Robert Brierley born 1899 in collyhurst Manchester to Joseph Robert Brierley and Sarah Jane Shea. Think he may have dropped use of name Joseph, as he is on the. 1939 census living with sister as Robert Brierley. Would like to know if he married and had children.

There wasn't a census in 1939.
Were you looking at the 1939 National Register, by any chance?

If I have the right family in 1911 (eldest brother Percy?), both he and his father were listed as Robert.

Have you checked the Free BMD index for possible marriages for him?

Looks like he died in 1974.  You could take a chance on his death certificate to see if a wife or child was the informant but he wasn't married by the age of 40.

From "Find a Will"
Brierley. John Robert, otherwise Robert, otherwise Joseph, of 258 Ridgway Street East, Manchester, died on  15 August 1974. Administration granted  9 September. 2827.

You could apply for a copy of the Letters of Administration which might have been granted to a family member, or perhaps a firm of solicitors. Letters of Administration are issued when there is no valid will, or one not able to be executed. The estate is then distributed in accordance with criteria laid down in law.

Hard to know which name he was living under. Sometimes he is Joseph, sometimes Robert. Could he marry under Robert Brierley, or would he have to use his birth name of Joseph Robert?
