Patrick James Cassidy


Active member
Hello there again,

I wonder if someone could help me trace my grandfather? His name was Patrick James Cassidy, and according to his death registration he was born 24th January 1921 in Derry (now called Londonderry) in Northern Ireland. I think his parents were Francis Cassidy and Teresa McGurk. I can't find his birth registration online anywhere. He moved to Newcastle at some point and married a Kathleen McCormack on September 1948 in Durham county, Newcastle. Apparently he had to leave Northern Ireland/Ireland because of some involvement in the IRA, some kind of trouble - but no one knows for sure the details. He often went by the name 'Jim', and he died 2005 in Newcastle.

Thank you so much if you can help!

Edit: I don't know if the birthday given on his death registration is correct - I can't see why it wouldn't be, but I don't know this for sure. I am fairly certain the year is correct though.
