    Well, there is a George Arthur POWELL's birth registered in the December quarter of 1909 in Lambeth district. (Volume 1d, page 415). However, there is another one in the June quarter of 1910 in Southwark dstrict - volume 1d, page 141.

    Is this the sort of thing that you are after?

    I'd recommend beginning with the 1911 census which is available on the pay-per-view site 'findmypast'.

    For example, try an advanced search for a George Arthur POWELL bn 1910 +/- 1 year with Violet POWELL living at the same address and see if you get any hits which closely match the information you have.

    You might also search freebmd for a marriage of the parents. Try looking at Dec 1907 for a marriage of Violet BIRD where there is a matching entry for someone with the surname POWELL.

    The only marriage for a Leonard (lonnard) Powell and Violet Bird combination prior to the birth of George Arthur is

    Marriages Dec 1907
    BIRD Violet Eleanor Wandsworth 1d 915
    POWELL Lonnard Arthur P Wandsworth 1d 915

    I donít know where the Gordon has gone though?

    Births Mar 1887 POWELL Leonard Arthur P Camberwell 1d 962

    Births Sep 1888 BIRD Violet Eleanor Camberwell 1d 8_9

    There are births for Powell with the mothers name Bird for 2 children

    Births Sep 1911 Powell Reginald P Bird Southwark 1d 246

    Births Mar 1913 Powell Gladys E Bird Southwark 1d 203

    So Iíd put my money on

    Births Jun 1910 POWELL George Arthur Southwark 1d 141

    Being your man.

    Donít know if this helps or hinders!

    Hey I think this is my great grandfather. My grandfather's father all I know about him is he was 28 in September 1938 born in London died in Wellington. I would love to find out if this is indeed my great grandfather.
