Marg, did he ever have a passport or have any issue with getting his old age pension?
Not that I know of.

I was told he was invalided from working in the pit in South Derbyshire when he was crushed. His cause of death was Coronary artery decease and Emphysema. I assume pit related.

Marg, Every now and again I look for PHH again. When I find someone to investigate, I usually look here to see if we've done it before.

Today I was looking at this chap:

http://www.genealogistsforum.co.uk/F...+harris+rouley

Do you have a master list of people we've looked at? That thread seems to fizzle out without any conclusions. Do you know if we ever found anything more about that Peter?

Blimey, that’s a long time ago. I don’t have a list of people unfortunately and I don’t remember anything about that chap

I’ve added to that but I’ll put it on here too. John Harris and Eliza Holyoake, the parents of Peter, married in 1877 in Rotherham.

I have a great uncle who changed his Irish name from McQuade (too Irish) to Wade when he joined the Army in 1890's.

So perhaps it was more common to hide their roots just to fit in.

Forget Peter Harris. I’ve found him in 1921 in Rawmarsh
