Thank you Chimp for allowing me to post here. I hope you can decide best where to place this. My mystery relative is my grandfather, Bert Lee. Bert was born around 1880 in either Nottinghamshire, Chester, or Chelsea. On 18th July 1935 he married my grandmother (still living) in Beeston, Notts. He was around 55 then. In 1941 he lived at 127 Regent Street, Beeston, Nottinghamshire. He died about 1965, when I was around 1 yr old, and he was around 85. My mother said one time when everyone was out and she was ironing clothes, Bert was having a drink and told my Mom that he was from a town that was half in England and half in Wales, and that they has some pigs on their land. (Chester or Chelsea she said) Another time, Mom said that at one point when my father was very little, he saw his father’s Bible with a name inside the front cover, but he was too young to read it. After that, the Bible disappeared. Perhaps he changed his name to avoid someone or something? In fact, when it came time to receive his pension, no one could prove his age. I don’t think they could find his birth certificate or anything like even his military papers to prove his age. Eventually, England went by the age he put on his marriage license to issue him his pension. I have hopefully ordered a copy of his marriage license from the right place. Hopefully I’ll receive it in a month. However, I’m thinking perhaps his parent’s names may not be on there. And the last thing I know is that Mom said he was a house painter after the War, in which he got shell shock. So you see, until I can figure out at least where he came from, I’m finding it difficult to decide which war records are his, and which census records are his to follow. I cannot find a grave on FindaGrave even. I have written to family several times, and cannot get any more help than this. I’m praying the marriage license will arrive with a clue. Thank you to anyone who tries to do a little digging for me.
