Joseph E. Hindley same DOB Died Bolton 1976. Same DOB also appears in Ancestry's 1939 register, which may give wife ?

1939 register shows him living at same address as in 1911.  It is possible to find him on FMP but it takes a bit of searching and he appears to be listed on 2 pages.  FMP is a more up to date release in that there are less records redacted.

 

He's at the same address - Temple farm with wife Eleanor (married 4Q 1921, Bolton), daughters Mary (4Q 1922), Constance (1Q 1935), Joyce (4Q 1936) and son Daniel (3Q 1924)

All four children married and there are nine grandchildren.  As most of the family are still alive it would be inappropriate to give names etc on a public forum. 

 

If you'd like me to find them please PM me.

 

I've done this quite a few times before, including reuniting a Dead Man's Penny with the recipient's great niece and a victory medal dug up in a garden in Sussex and returned to the family in Derbyshire.
