Welcome to our forum ~ please post your questions below.
I am trying to find the names of Harry Squires born April 1889
He was adopted by John Strutt and Emma Strutt in Sheffield
I do know that Emma Strutt had a sister called Mary Yellott who married a Squires
I tried Sheffield council for a birth certificate but they didn't have one
Does anyone know how to help please?
I can't find a baptism but the following birth registration is on FMP. Looking at the mother's maiden name, it seems likely that this Harry was illegitimate and it would, therefore, have been likely he was given up for adoption.
First name(s) Harry Aspland
Last name Squires
Birth quarter 3
Birth year 1889
Mother's maiden name Squires
District Ecclesall Bierlow
I'm afraid you'll have to send off for the certificate to confirm mother's full name and father's name is unlikely to be on the certificate.
Could Aspland be a nod to the father!!
What is FMP where you got some info for me?
FMP is the web site Find My Past.
I have ordered a birth certificate for the Harry you have mentioned. So hopefully something might show up on the certificate.
When you have searched FMP does it state Harry`s mothers surname on the certificate? Have you got a link to it ?
