    You've made me realise I hadn't added Henry to the tree! His sister Mary Elizabeth Parry married someone called Thomas Henry Clark, and perhaps that's why I missed it. He's in all of the census records. I guess everyone called him Harry! I know my great-grandfather was known as Jack. Perhaps everyone had a nickname.

    Thanks for that!

    Also, in 1943, Wentworth Street was considered LIVERPOOL NORTH, as opposed to WEST DERBY, according to GRO.

    I'm now also wondering why the word "Internment" was used.

    Edit: Okay sorry, in the excitement I didn't read it carefully enough. I realise he was sent from his home address to hospital. Internment still seems a little weird though!

    A death should be registered in the name a person "used or was known by" at the time they died, there is no requirement for it to match the name they were given at birth.

    I always thought it meant burial.

    I guess that makes sense, because some people may not have someone to identify them by name.

    Ah yes, of course! My head was thinking along the lines of WW2, due to the date.

    INTERNMENT means imprisonment ... but is often confused with INTERMENT - burial.

    Have revisited newspaper snippet - it reads "interment" not "internment". I transcribed it incorrectly.
