Arthur Phillips b 1923 Pontypridd
« on: Monday 10 June 24 13:06 BST (UK) »
Hi, posting for a friend. Looking for any info on a Arthur Phillips b 1923 Pontypridd to John Henry Phillips & Lillian Eva Edwards. Arthur had a brother called Berec Phillips. Cannot find him on the 1939 census, not at home with his parents. He joined the RAF ? and was a Squadron Leader and stationed in Driffield 1954/55. Cannot find a death for him or a marriage. Any help would be grateful as my friend has just discovered  that Arthur is his father.
Thankyou.

Nothing other than a birth for Arthur at the moment sorry, but his mother was Lilian (one l) and brother was Beric not Berec (1916- edited thanks to softly softly- to 1984). Married Ella Knight. Other siblings Nancy 1914-1987, married Leonard Morley, Margaret (Peggy) 1921-2006, married William CH Lloyd.

Father John Henry born 5 Dec 1886 in Cardiff, died in St Germans, Cornwall on 10 Feb 1978.

Mother Lilian born 26 Sep 1888 in Chester, died 1968 in West Cheshire. corrected to Oct-Dec 1964 in Cornwall (St Germans)

I would suggest ordering a copy of Arthur's birth certificate in order to ascertain his exact birth date, which will be useful going forward to search both on the 1939 register (if present) and to compare against entries on the death registration index.

A digital image of a certificate is only 3 through the GRO.

Queenie  :)

The siblings all appear to have moved away so given his name it is likely to be difficult. His exact date of birth from his birth certificate might help as its included (if known) in deaths in England and Wales from the late 1960s.
