Hey all,

I am having a problem locating my material grandparents on the 1939 register and wondered if someone would be so kind as to take a look in case my eyes are not working...

Their names were Jean Alice Thompson (M/N Bates) and Edward H Thompson.

Jean was born 1927 in Birmingham and Edward was born 1926 again in Birmingham.

Any help would be amazing as this is a large piece missing from a jigsaw.

Thanks

Scott

It is possible that their names have been redacted under the 100 year rule. The register was used by the NHS as a database until the 1990's and they kept it updated. If your grandparents died after, I think, 1991 then it may not yet have been picked up and the records opened.

Thanks for the info - my grandmother died in 2018 so that makes sense, Edward died in 1973 though so I will need to concentrate on him.

Cheers for the reply thought - means alot.

Edward should be in the register. Do you have his dob? Or any idea if he was in Birmingham in 1939 or elsewhere?

If you haven't got them in 1950, this looks like them..

Birmingham E/R 1950 [Electoral Roll]
Edward H Thompson
Ward or Division/Constituency: Yardley
Street address: 79 Cowley Road
Residence Place: Birmingham, West Midlands
[With a Jean Thompson]
Also another person at that address, see PM [may still be living]

There are some trees on Anc. none appear to have them in 1939.

Were his parents Lydia and Charles. There is a Lydia Thompson living at 1 Wanstead Grove Cranbourne Road, Birmingham with an Edward H Thompson.
Added. Not him that Edward was born 1889.

Try this one,
