Searching for info on HERBERT WESLEY BORN 1907 Derbyshire way
« on: Friday 11 September 20 11:21 BST (UK) »
I am quite new to this, and made a huge mistake their were 2 Herbert Wesley's born the same month in 1907, my grandfather Harold died in 1966, however I picked up the wrong line of a Herbert that died in 1988.  My Herbert's line has hit a brick wall, so many Wesley's born in the Derbyshire area at the same time.  I know he had a sister (name unknown), and two brothers, William and Edward.  Can anyone help?
Thank you

Hello

It should be possible to find your Harold on the census after his birth, hopefully with parents and siblings.

He should also appear on the 1939 register which gives date of birth. 

Who did he marry please?  The marriage should name his father and occupation. 

Lots to go on and I'm sure you will soon be on the right track.

Is this your one?

Deaths Sep 1966   (>99%)
WESLEY    HERBERT    55    ILKESTON    3A   315

If so,  born about 1911.

Have you his marriage certificate? How old does he say he is on there. Is it consistent with age at death?   Name and occupation of father?  Witnesses?   And of course  name of  Bride and her father.

Have you found him in 1939?

Oops there are 2 names in there - Herbert and Harold - is it Herbert you want or was he known as Harold?
