On the 1911 census he is down as Harold George aged 14 so would think he is the one John found in 1896.

Harold George Benton married Elsie Alexander, their son Harold Alexander Benton was born in 1924 registered Jan qtr 1925 died in nuneaton in 1989.
A Harold A Benton married Vera M Shetton , believe this to be a transcribing error and the name is Stretton. Vera M Stretton was born Tamworth 1925.
Have found the births of Benton/Stretton but will IM you with them as they will be living persons.

Ann, did you get my message about Harold Alexander Bentons childen.
They will still be alive so it is best not to publish their names on this forum.

I am one of Harold Alexander Benton's children. Not sure how much shows up on forum thread so won't add more until I see what comes up. I have details of Benton/Strettonfamily down to Harold's grandchildren
