debs maybe i have the picked up the wrong whitehouse family then although it does say that violet was born in 1898...here is the 1939 eve of war register for the family i found...apologies if its the wrong one
oh dont we know that alberta lol...but what i am confused about is debs says she has violet and harold on the 39 register in cookoo road...they cant be on 2 registers so is the one i found the wrong family?
I'm a bit puzzled by this. Apologies if I mistyped the house number on my original post. I have the Whitehouses at 13 Cuckoo Road in 1939 (not 33). Reference RG101/5548J/004/40 Letter Code: QBBX. Harold is a locomotive fireman and Violet Unpaid Domestic Duties. She took 2 years off her age! It was given in the register as 1 July 1900, but in fact she was born on that date in 1898! . Harold's address when he died in 1956, as given in the National Probate Calendar is Cuckoo Road, so I presume they lived there all their married lives.
I cant find Wigmore Close in 1939.
