1901 Census

GER22VAN

master brummie
I am still searching for Joseph Leonard Goldsbury on the 1901 Census and I seem to have tried every variation of spelling that I can think of. He would have been about 5 to 6 years old.
I am so frustrated at not being able to find him. Can someone help me Please.

Did you find him on the 1911? Only one I could find was a Leonard J Goldsbury B1895 Bham aged 16 living at Gordon Hall Boy's Home, 20 High Street, Deritend but no luck in the 1901:( Did he have siblings and what were his parents called?

I found the birth registration of Joseph Leonard Goldsbury - Aston June qtr 1895. I also checked all Goldsbury's registered in Aston around that date, as it could give an idea of siblings. However the previous was 1880 and the next 1902. So unless Free BMD is not updated, is there a possibility that Josph's mother may not have been married?

Very Very Sorry not to have answered these posts, I did not know my Uncle Joseph which is why I have tried to find out everything about him on records. I thank everyone who have tried to help me on this thread and other threads.Its just a mystery why he is not on the 1901 Census. I am lost now to know where to search further.

Thank You so much carolina, I do not quite understand if he could have been on the 1919 electoral roll as he died on the 26th October 1917. Once Again Many Thanks for your reply Carolina. Ernie .

Sue, I went to Kew record office some years ago to obtain records of his war Medals, I think there was a page missing about the the Star in 1915 roll although I did not report it at the time. As you say F/282 p155, I would loved to know the information that I did not get at the time.
Sue Thank You So Much For The Information Given.
