    Default looking for anyone who may know my dad

    Hi I wondered if anyone knows anything about my dad. I know very little due to family squabbles, his names was Charles Derrek Hord born 1921 in Goole Yorkshire and served in the merchant navy.

    Thanks Frederick
    However had another Search at NA in Seamans Pouches and nothing comes up with that name which is strange not even one!
    Only other wat i suppose is to look if there may be a CRS10 for him but that costs!
    Cheers

    NB I have also searched FMP Records and again there is no name like that comes up,so i feel that he may not have been in the Merchant Navy in Britain ????
    Cheers

    There are Records of Birth,and Marriage but that is all

    Hi i am sure my dads middle name is Derrick spelt this way as i have checked on findmypast i am sorry i can not give more to go on all i know is he was born in Goole Yorkshire, his date of birth and his death is as you say. Hord is definitely spelt this way as is on my birth certificate, i remember seeing a picture of him in his uniform with friends in new York outside a place called Rogers bar.

    Shelley
    Can you recall the Uniform at all, was it Merchant Navy or Royal Navy or even possibly American .
    On FMP i have as said seen records for him but not Forces records so yes the spelling is correct as i see it.
    Last nameHord First name(s)Charles D Year Of Birth1921 Year Of Death Year1921 Record setEngland & Wales Births 1837-2006 LocationGoole, Yorkshire, England
    Will keep on looking and let you know if anything should arise.
    Hope that some day you may get to know a bit more
    Cheers

    Also as said Shelley to outlay a bit of cash to see if there may be other rcords on him (his CRS10) is i feel the only other option ,it may prove fruitless but then at least you know that it can be ruled out that he was not with the British Merchant Navy.

    Here is Link to CRS10 Covering his name ,so if he was with BMN he would have a CRS10 within this Series.
    Best of Luck

    https://discovery.nationalarchives.g...ls/r/C10990699

    Reference: BT 382/2475
    Description: Horan John to Horsburgh A T
    Date: 1941 Jan 01 - 1972 Dec 31



    If you come up with a Blank on the BMN and feel he may i say may have possibly been with the American Merchant Navy here is a Link to use for applying for a Record,again a hit and miss situation untill you try!??

    thank you so much Doc Vernon you have been extremely helpful to my plight I will look into the links you sent and see how I get on I am going to try and find a picture of the uniform as it so so long ago since seeing the picture it could be a distorted memory.

    Hi Shelley
    A pic of the Uniform will be of help i am sure,we can try and doctor it if its a bit iffy LOL
    But may shed light on what Service he was in.
    Will await your posting
    Cheers

    The more i search Shelley its becoming that he may well not have been in the Merchant Navy ,but do try and look or obtain that CRS10 as that will confirm his Service if he did .
    As said with a Pic of that Uniform,we may be able to whittle down what was what.
    Just seems so strange that there is no name to match at any of my usual places of search,i talk about Service Records only .
    So the search continues!
