Well there are plenty on the register with a wrong date of birth but as relationships arenít shown itís hard to be certain. But as heís not with his parents, who knows.

Looking for any info on a Arthur Phillips b 1923 Pontypridd to John Henry Phillips & Lillian Eva Edwards.

Cannot find him on the 1939 census, not at home with his parents


Sorry canít help with 1939 Register  ???

Glamorganshire, Wales, Electoral Registers, 1832-1978 Arthur listed with his parents address 2 James Street year 1952, same address for years 1953/54/55/56 (no John & Lilian) other surname listed same address JONES  and  for Years 1957 - 1966 (no John & Lilian) other surname at same address DAVIES

There is an S in front of his name indicating Service Personnel

Arthur's father John Henry Phillips (died 10 Feb 1978 in St Germans Cornwall) left a will, copy available from the probate site. Might name the children....

Yes we have the will but it doesn't name the children but we already have those names. It's Arthur that's the mystery.

it might have given an address if anything left to him, or if he was the administrator.
