in Genealogy Help by
anonymous, this information is nowhere near explicit enough.

There were two George E Kemps that died in 1950 in England (one in Kettering and one in Thurrock).  If you would like help to identify peoples records you need to be more specific.

hi anonymous, if you want to explore your ancestry I suggest that you order certificates for the births marriages and deaths from the General Registry Office using the references you can get by searching the BMD indexes (free searchable indexes are available online at

Using the family information you provided I found them in the 1881 census (below) with George's brother and father living with them, which then allowed me to find George with both parents in the 1861 and 1871 censuses (see following comments for other censuses)
