    A short time ago I found a new 2nd cousin via London Electoral Rolls. I checked her on FreeBMD births- correct. then went to check 1939 TNA registration as I knew I'd not seen her there before.
    Definitely not present unless hers was blacked out. her birth reg'd Dec.1/4 1917 Brentford, makes her just short of 100 yrs, so likely.

    Others present a brother b.1915 & her Mother a widow.
    Cannot find her other brother b. 1913 in Brentford. Not helping is the fact that he reversed his 1st two names, found because he too was living at Pts address of 19 Erconwald St. Hammersmith 1934 - 1938.
    Possibly he altered his names as they were same as father who seems to have died in Swansea in 1923.

    So, have I answered my own 1st query? & am left with the other two unknowns. Must leave my searching for now, have appointment with a long needle. :rolleyes:

    Good luck with the needle. :eek:

    Possibly mis-transcribed. I found one of mine on the register the other day, with such a scramble of a name that I would never have found them had I not been looking for someone else a few doors down.

    I didn't rush it either, came up in converse with local Dr. re whereto jab for shingles & then flue vax.One side was a no go.
    The need was great, doesn't hurt [until times later] the relief is wonderful. Needle wasn't as long as the memory of such from a few years back.
    @Bay Horse , not knowing under which names the other brother went makes things awkward.

    If she was serving in the Armed Forces, she would not show up.

    Thanks Jan, haven't found her in Military. Rather think it's she is the blacked out space.
    Her first brother b. 1913 not there either, but later changed his William Francis to Francis William & appears in 1934 living in Hampstead with his Mother & younger brother.
    His Fathers death in 1923 would appear to be correct. He appears with wife 1918-1919 listed under 'William' but image gives 2nd name of Francis- wife just as Emily.
    Not found later in20s got tired of going through ancestry alphabetised names to find them. 1918-19 @ 5 Wells House Rd. Acton = 5+7 Wells House rd
