Hi Phil,
you need to use the FindMyPast or Ancestry subscription websites to access the 1939 Register. Sorry but I don't currently have subs to either. However we can still get some idea of what is on the Register using FindMyPast's free search engine.

In this case, searching Kenneth Fletcher born Hereford 1928 gives;


Fletcher Household; Stable Cottage, Leominster and Wigmore Rural District, Herefordshire, England

First name Last name(s) Birth year
Kenneth R Fletcher 1928
Frances A Fletcher and 2 more people are on this record.



Phil, does this new name Frances, or the place, fit what you know ??


Searching FreeBMD gives these records which seem relevant.
HOWEVER it appears to be a different set of parents than first believed ??

Births Dec 1928 (>99%)
Fletcher Kenneth R Jorden Leominster 6a 719

Searching FreeBMD for Marriages between Fletcher & Jorden gives no hits. I suspect JordEn is a mis-spelling, so repeat with JordAn.

So now find;

Surname First name(s) Spouse District Vol Page
Marriages Jun 1927 (>99%)
FLETCHER George T Jordan Leominster 6a 1295
JORDAN Frances A Fletcher Leominster 6a 1295

So clearly the mother's name matches one of those in the abovementioned 1939 Register Entry.

HOWEVER it looks like a different family than the one we suggested before (Fletcher/Pritchard).


This may be because that your Kenneth's record may still be "closed" so won't be found when searching.


Repeating the FindMyPast 1939 search for Mansel Fletcher born 1939 gives no hits.


Revisiting earlier research, if the parents are indeed Harry Fletcher & Lily M Prichard who married Monmouth District in 1920.

As we have her middle name#s initial, Lily may be easier to find than Harry.
This looks a good possibility for her;

Births Jun 1896 (>99%)
Pritchard Lily Mary Monmouth 11a 32

Sadly cannot find her in this FoD site's PRs.

Searching for her, and so hopefully her family, in the 1939 Register seems to only give one "local" hit which may be her.

Fletcher household; Summer House, Ross and Whitchurch R.D., Herefordshire, England
First name Last name(s) Birth year
Mary L Fletcher 1896
John James Gwyn and 4 more people are on this record
4 more people who are officially closed


Please Phil do you know any more definite facts about this family apart from the 2 boys names, eg parents definite names, or location, etc ?
