Looking for family history around Gladys May Barlow

Hi,

I am looking for information around the Barlow family who lived in Reading Berkshire.

My grandmother was Gladys May Nelliw Barlow (married name Duckett) who was born 19th September 1913.

She had several siblings including Norman, Mo, Edie, Dollie and Cecelia.

I am most interested in Norman as he was wounded badly at Dunkirk. I wonder what regiment he was with?

What were her parents called and what are their birthdates.

With thanks

Rick

Hi,

Not sure if this is the family as Gladys was born in September 1913 -either the 19.09.13 or 11.09.13.

How could one find out about Norman Barlow? He was apparently badly wounded at Dunkirk.

I know Gladys married Reg Duckett - does that help?

Re Gladys's birth registration. Someone will no doubt correct me if I am wrong but I think you have upto six weeks after a birth during which the birth must be registered. If Gladys was born in the September and the birth was not registered until the October this would put the birth registration in the Oct/Nov/December quarter of the year.

Hi,

Somethings not right. The only time Norman appears with family is on the 1901 census. Year of birth given is 1896. No birth found. Brother Horace has his year of birth 1899 in 1901, but his birth was registered in 1896. And where is Arthur in 1901. His birth was registered in 1899, he dosen’t appear on the 1901 census but is on the 1911 census. Could Arthur be known as Norman?.
