Searching for Ernest Lello and probate records
I am helping an American cousin with a search for her gf Ernest Lello who, she was told, came from "Knighton in Radnorshire". In particular we want to find the death record for Ernest Lello born c1892 and who was last heard of in 1939 when he gave an address as "BM/OFC London WC2".
ERnest Lello married Dorothy Sankey in 1916 but was divorced in 1926. There were two children. His last known job was as stage manager at New Queens Theatre in Fleetwood.
Ernest's father was Ernest Samuel Lello, a grocer, living c1916 at 16 Redcar Avenue Withington.
Yesterday I searched through 50 years of probate records in London to 1990 and found several Lellos from the Knighton area but no sign of Ernest! Does anyone recognise this name. I have seen Barbara Ridgway's book on Cyril Lello.
Any suggestions about how I might find the death record for Ernest Lello - apart from searching through 50 years of records at Family Research Centre in London! - would be greatly welcomed.
Most grateful for any suggestions. Happy to contribute the Lello probate records from Knighton if that is helpful
