BROWN/Willes­den

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - Q&A -

James Brown’s army at­tes­ta­tion pa­pers give his date of birth as 27 Au­gust 1905 and his age as 20 years and 120 days when he joined the Royal Ar­tillery on 29 De­cem­ber 1925. His place of birth is given as Willes­den, Lon­don. His father was also James Brown, his mother An­nie.

How­ever, when he mar­ried Muriel Gla­dys Sophia San­ders on 10 June 1944, his age is given as 41. I can’t find a birth cer­tifi­cate any­where. Can any­one help? Chris­tine Brown, by email
